You're in your 20s and still asking your parents for money?

Grow UP!

Remember that your parents do not owe you anything once you become an adult. They have done their part in raising you and providing for you, and now it is time for you to do your part in taking care of yourself. Don't be a burden on them by expecting them to support you financially or otherwise once you reach adulthood. Be independent and self-sufficient, and show your parents that you can care for yourself. They will be proud of you and feel proud of yourself too. So do the right thing and take responsibility for your own life. Thank them for everything they have done for you up to this point, and then show them that you are ready to face the world on your own.

I understand, and It's perfectly normal to still depend on your parents in your early 20s. Many people in this age group still live at home with their parents and rely on them. Especially in Nepal, it's perfectly normal, and I know Nepali parent loves it. But come on, how can you ask for money to fulfill all of your lavish style needs? How can you demand This and That because you want it, not because you need it? Try to be more responsible and independent. Do your part, try to get a job, or stop your lavish style.

Grow up

The key is to start working towards independence and becoming more self-sufficient. There are a few things you can do to begin this process:

  1. Get a job: The most obvious way to become more independent is to get a job. Having your income will give you more financial freedom and help you start to save money for your future. You can decide how to spend your money and will be less reliant on others. Getting a job can also help you develop new skills and confidence. If you are unsure what job you want, there are many ways to explore different options. You can talk to friends and family, research careers online, or speak to a career counselor. Once you have found a job that interests you, the next step is to start applying for positions. This can be done by visiting job websites, attending job fairs, or contacting companies directly. The key is to put yourself out there and show employers that you are the right person for the job. With hard work and dedication, getting a job is a great way to become more independent.

  2. Start paying your bills: Moving out of your parent's house is a big step. It can be daunting to think about all of the new bills you'll have to pay, but there are some simple things you can do to start preparing for this transition. If you're still at home, start paying your share of household expenses like groceries and utilities. This will not only show your parents that you're serious about taking on more responsibility, but it will also help you get used to budgeting for these costs. You should also start setting aside money each month to cover the cost of rent, furniture, and other necessary items. By taking these steps now, you'll be better prepared financially when moving out on your own.

  3. Move out: Moving out of your parent's house is a big step. It's a decision that shouldn't be made lightly, but it can be advantageous if you're ready for it. Renting your place will force you to be more independent and responsible for your own life. You'll have to budget your money, cook meals, and keep your space clean. But you'll also be free to do what you want when you want. If you're considering moving out, sit down with your parents and discuss your plans. They may have some helpful advice or tips to make the transition smoother. Ultimately, though, the decision is up to you. If you're ready to accept the challenge of living independently, go for it!

  4. Be financially responsible: One of the most important things you can do for your future is to start saving money now. Even if you are still in school, it is never too early to begin saving for your future goals. There are many ways to save money, such as setting up a budget and sticking to it, finding deals and discounts, and avoiding unnecessary impulse purchases. By being mindful of your spending and saving regularly, you will be on your way to financial independence. Although it may seem difficult at first, being financially responsible will pay off in the long run. You will thank yourself later for taking the time to save up for your future.

  5. Cut the cord: The teenage years are a time of transition when young people are beginning to assert their independence and establish their own identity. For many teenagers, this process involves cutting the cord with their parents and taking on more responsibility for themselves. This can be challenging, as it requires practical skills and emotional maturity. However, it is an essential step toward becoming an independent adult. Learning to do things like laundry, cook meals, and budget money are crucial life skills. But perhaps even more importantly, cutting the cord helps teenagers develop self-reliance and confidence. As they navigate the challenges of adolescence, teenagers who have cut the cord with their parents are more likely to emerge as successful and well-adjusted adults.

There's no shame in being dependent on your parents at this age. Just remember that it's essential to start working towards independence to live a fulfilling and successful life on your own. So take the first steps today and show your parents that you're ready to take on the world.
