Leaving home always seems like a scary idea, you’re away from comfort and security, everything you’ve grown up around and you’re starting a life on your own. There are fears and anxieties, but also excitement and expectations, personally for me I’m more excited than afraid or scared. It’s a wonderful opportunity, a way to start my own life and make my own decisions, but it also means I’ll be away from all my friends, family, and people who have supported me. Although all this is true, for me the push overcomes the pull, the excitement for new opportunities defeats the fear of leaving my home, maybe it’s my want for independence, or my need for freedom. For me there is no fear about leaving home only anticipation and want.
