I appreciate the perspective from Anna who has a strained relationship with her mother. Most articles that talk about the growing problem of young people being unable to live independently so often neglect the fact that so many people who have terrible relationships with their parents are willingly stepping into abusive situations again just for the sake of survival. It's not simply "just move in with your parents, it'll be great to spend time with them" like so many people like to say.
