Re: 22 years and finding it hard to leave
It's tough. Walking away from perceived security into the great unknown is something very few people feel happy about. The thing to remember though, assuming you're not genuinely going to be heading into poverty, is that you will adapt and do just fine. Look at other people in your potential future situation (i.e. living in a smaller place, running an older car etc.) and I doubt you'll find that they're miserable as a result.
