Normalize families living together.
Why does society look down on this?
Oh, that’s right…because we all should be independent.
I hate to break it to you, but we live in an interdependent world. It takes a village. We are more interdependent than we think.
Why do people laugh at it and make fun of it?
I have a great relationship with my dad. We are best friends. We have a strong bond. He took care of me my whole life. I want to reciprocate and help take care of him. I want to spend time with him.
Also, there are a lot of people out there who are struggling and need help. It’s expensive, maybe even a waste, for one person to live alone. Some people can’t afford it.
Didn’t families used to live together? When did we become so privileged?
I’ve lived with my dad as an adult. I’m not ashamed of it. I’m not embarrassed by it. I enjoyed our time together. I’m proud of it. It takes courage to do something society looks down on. Suck up your pride.
I hope my dad will move in with me. Because I love my dad and care about my dad. I want to help take care of my dad and want to spend quality time with my dad.
I don’t know who made up these arbitrary rules. I don’t care who thinks it’s weird or abnormal. It’s completely natural and normal to me. It makes sense to me.
Here’s the way I look at it: shelter is shelter. Who cares who we live with. It’s nobody else’s business anyway. Stop judging others for how they choose to live.
