How can I get my grandma and dad to support me on this? They keep fussing at me, making me cry literally all day every day since it was brought up and they talk about how I'm just going to leave, and fail. They keep telling me I have no clue how hard its going to be, because I've never been on my own. However, I have an idea. I know it's going to be extremely hard, and unusual but I think it will be good because I will be faced with decisions and I'll make my own choice rather than having to rely on my grandma or dad for decisions or assistance.
What should I do for acceptance with my family without them thinking I'm turning my back on them and never seeing them again like they think? Which is clearly not the case..

You can either take on their negativity or say something like the following:
"Dad, Grandma - I know you both love me and support me and don't want to see me fail. However, I'm an adult now, and need to start making my own decisions. I have to make my own successes and failures...Hopefully the values and sense you two have given me my whole life will help me succeed. I'll always love you, and still want you both in my life - but I have and want to do this."
