Netizens share their thoughts on his situation
"Who forced you to move? I only moved out of my Dad's house when I was getting married at 30."
"It's a very immature decision to hastily leave ur parents house when u don't have money or haven't saved enough to furnish ur rented apartment & sustain urself; Even if u are above 30 years old, stay in ur family house till u sort urself out. Don't give in to societal pressure."
"Bad advice. At time you need to leave your comfort zone and face the challenges of life. I left home at 22yrs to Lagos when the future holds nothing and even slept on d floor with cloth in someone house. Today, it not same story about o the glory of God and determination. So rest."
"You were lucky, and that’s cool. It worked out for you, doesn’t mean it’ll work out for him, especially as he doesn’t have a stable source of income yet. Telling someone offering his advice to “rest” is really rude."
Man highlights challenges of moving out of one's parents' house
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a man had lamented the challenges of moving out of one's parents' house.
The man said that he was able to save Ghc14,464 with the help of side gigs after his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). With that money, he thought he had ‘blown’.
The man said that forgetting the time it took him to save that sum while enjoying freebies under his parents’ roof, he decided to pursue his independence and move out.
After several attempts at house hunting in Lagos, he settled for a mini-flat of 350k per year. With agent fee and a 2-year-rent, he was going to part with almost 850k.
