I constantly remind my children of this: Home will always be there for you. So, go ahead and soar...
There are no right or wrong answers to any of these questions, but hopefully they help clear some confusion!
This is definitely a tricky question, but something only really you can answer. It depends on the person, but also I understand that you want to branch out and experience new and interesting moments in life. College is definitely not for everyone, but I will say...I was like you. I loved and still love my family detrimentally. However, when applying for colleges, I was debating if I really wanted to go due to the fact that I would miss my family all the time. Once I finally accepted where I was to go for the next 4 years, I truly debated if that was even th right place for me as I knew no one attending the organization, as well as it was 5 hours from my home and family.
After sticking it through for the first semester, I can say that I was glad I stayed.. One thing, if you are interested, that made college ten times easier was joining a sorority. I know it DEFINITELY is not for everyone, and may sound a little cheesy, but going and finding a sorority was another one of the best things that I could have ever done. There was where I found some of my closest friends that I am still friends with as to this day. So close that a few of them lived 20 minutes from me this whole entire time, and I had no clue until attending college! I know these ladies and I will always be friends, and have each other's backs for as long as possible.
But to wrap things up, it all depends on the person whether they should go to college or not. I know it can be a big step to do something new and different, but once you step outside of your comfort zone, you'll only focus on the fun adventures and events that will be coming your way.\
Thank you and I hope this helped!
