why do you think perhaps you should move out?because most of the people think you should do so in your condition? be different with you,I know that I should move out for the great difference my family and I.and I'm trying to make money,to achieve finance independence.

Before you leave I would make sure that you have at least enough money to live off of for 6 months if something were to happen to your job, plus your first months rent, deposit and other fees you incur by moving.

First, why do you think leaving your family is necessary? as for me, i live with my family still at my age, 27 but i feel as independent as i can be.. though at times i feel i want to have my privacy and wants to be away from them for a while.. i guess that is just what i do when i go on vacation with my friends. Second, will family approve you to move out of the house? Do you give them financial support? etc? do you think you can very well live by yourself? what about your place? your laundry? etc.. There are many thngs you need to consider when you do decide on this. i hope you would be able to decide on this freely and responsibly.

yes I have to do a lot of thinking before leaving. I never thought of finical matters or their feelings about me leaving them. I have to do a lot of thinking. you are right. Thanks

Maybe you could make a list of what your priorities are in terms of living on your own and its pros / cons. - being independent vs having to pay for rent / food etc - friends can freely visit but now you have full responsibility for them in your place (or if you rent, someone else's) etc. If you answer these questions, it will become clearer what you prefer. I really appreciate that you are asking yourself first. I've seen a lot of people move out of their parents then still brought the laundry home with them when they visited. Which I think doesn't really show maturity. Hope this helps, good luck!

Only you know the answer to this.It depends on if you think your ready and have a stable income each week.At 25 though I would say yes thats a very good age to be out on your own.sounds like you are already independent in making money so it should be time to spread your wings and FLY....
