I’m 100% terrified of moving out on my own again.

Yes, at 31 years old, I’m scared to move out into my own place. Just thinking about leaving the comfort of my mom’s home gives me major anxiety. Adulting was hard the first time around…this time, it’s an entirely different monster.

Why?

Because this time, I’ll be a single mom with a toddler. A very needy, busy, active toddler. And I’ll be relocating back to Atlanta, so I won’t even be in the same city as my mom.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a mama’s girl.

WTF am I supposed to do when I move out? I’m ready, but I’m not ready.

Fortunately, my daughter’s father lives in Atlanta so I’ll have help & the responsibility will be fairly distributed between the two of us (hopefully).

However, I’m still scared. It’s not going to be how it was when I first moved out on my own.

I won’t be able to do everything I want to do when I want to do it.

Finances are always a struggle, but now that I’m responsible for a life other than my own, there are more expenses to consider – as if I didn’t have enough already (hello, side hustle).

I’ll be homesick, even though home is only an hour and a half away.

I’ll be forced to face my past – because it’s still my present.

So if you’re in the city, please be kind. I’m adjusting to life as a real adult with more baggage than Hartfield at this point.
