The bad influence actually lives back near where they do!! No where near me.. aghhhh, I can understand where they are coming from but this has been an ongoing problem where they have not 'let me go' to live my own life. Although their argument would be that every time I do go off on my own I make a hash if it! And I too am guilty of running to them when I have got myself in a pickle! I was trying to do it relatively alone this time.
I think I will talk to my cousin that's a great idea thank you, sometimes an outside perspective always helps I hope everyone else is having a good day!
