My mom is super over protective and I understand why she is because some people in this world are psychos and just evil. But I never get to hang out with my friends and I'm like the friend who has to flake on my other friends because my mom won't let me hang out. by the way, I'm 23 but I don't have a car or place of my own yet so I'm living with my mom. I just moved back from school where I had a dorm/apartment. I graduated and I'm currently working but not making a lot so I have to save up to get my master's degree next. When I was living there on my own, I could do so much more! But now that I'm back home again, I'm being treated like a 16 year old again. Anyway, I've spent 364 days this year with family and tmrw I want to go hang out with my friends for new year's eve and stay at their place. Trust me when I say I've only been out a total of 7 times this whole year to hang out with my friends because my mom is just super protective. It's rather annoying. Every time I try to hang out, mom gives me an ultimatum like don't go or I'll kick you out of the house forever or some ish like that. Well I'm just like eff it now because I want to go out and do something fun besides go to church or spend it with family every year. Although I do like to go to church, I don't like going to other people's churches all the time because their churches are boring but mom's going to a guest church and I don't want to be bored. so my friends are begging me to come out with them tmrw to go hang out, shop, go to a parade and stuff. I told my mom and she was like heck no! You're going to church no exceptions. I told her no and that I'm going to hang out with my friends because I go to church with her every year and this is the first year I'll actually get to hang out with friends this year and that I'm old enough to take care of myself. My boyfriend is also going to church too but he goes to a different church but I'll be sad because I won't get to celebrate with him. But this is something I've always wanted to do: hang out with friends and bring in the new year with them! It's always been me and my family celebrating new years and it's fun but every year is kinda boring. Like my mom doesn't want any of my friends coming along she just wants to celebrate new years with me and the rest of the family. But this year, it's just going to be me, my little bro, and my mom's friends celebrating but I said no. My mom doesn't want me to get drunk and get arrested or anything so she never wants me to hang out with people. I'm not going to drink or if I do, I'll just drink one shot that whole night, but if my friends get in trouble or something, I have a backup plan just in case I need a place to stay or a friend to pick me up. And I know how to not get drunk in public as I can handle my liquor. Ugh but I've never been the one to stand up against my mom and my mom's guilt tripping me and giving me effin ultimatums to make me stay and I don't want to because it's going to be friggin boring again with just her and my bro.

As someone who had to move back home briefly due to a bad job sitch and my lease being up all you can do is live by their rules. As long as you don't pay rent whatever they say goes. I never did anything they didn't allow the entire year I lived there and I was 29. So either deal or move out. And trust me I missed my sleepovers with my man and my alcohol, but it wasn't allowed so I did without both for a year. Plus since you don't have a car you can't take yourself anywhere so either take care of the situation and be a grown up or go by the rules and act like one.0
