A highlight of growing up is being able to move out of your parents’ house and become an independent young man or woman. You find an apartment, a decent job that will pay the bills and you make lifelong friends. As a rite of passage into adulthood many make adventurous trips either for leisure or to help those in need. They learn to make all their own decisions with the intent of solidifying a belief in themselves.
This doesn’t mean they don’t rely on their Mom or Dad for choices that are difficult and are life-altering. A “fork in the road” decision always presents as a challenge, but we don’t have to face them alone.
