I appreciate your very good and thorough response.
Some things i want to mention.
I would have thought you knew i live in the usa judging from what i mentioned here. Im from new york city. You mention how you say you don't believe any of my friends cannot find jobs for 8 months. My friend all have business degrees from university just like me. A few of them have finance job before and got laid off. I agree obviously they are not looking for a job outside their field. I had a friend that actually got laid off his banking job and now is a police officer. These are also very smart friends i have so the they don't know how to find a job process... what you say here are completely wrong. A few of them work in banks for few years.
Sorry I missed where you said that you live in New York. It is indeed expensive to live there, but can't you find cheaper places that are nearby? My friends used to live in Jersey and it was kind of expensive but nowhere near as much as NYC and they were able to make it work. When I was describing your friends I said they either didn't know how to get a job OR they weren't looking for outside their field. The fact is, people needs jobs. If they can't find one in their field, they need to find one doing something else. I'm not sure the point you're making here. We all have to find jobs.
I mean if you tell my friend forget about looking for another job in the business field that pays 40k in the city and just look for a job that pays 10-15k... what do you think they will say you to?
It doesn't matter what they say to me. They can either find a job, or not. I think most people would love to have a 40k job. But if we can't find one, we aren't going to turn down 15k jobs and then complain that there are no jobs. I would take a minimum wage job over nothing at all.
I have had a very bad experience with roommates that I don't know. I have done this many years ago. One guy i spoke to was a guy that seemed pretty cool so i thought we could get a place. We had the same hobbies etc It seemed like we hit it off. Then i dont know what happened. This guy starting acting crazy and sending me chilling phone messages. Calls me on the phone and then once i try to pick up he intentionally closes the phone. I honestly didn't know what was happening with him and then I had to delete his number and block him because he started scaring me so much. Then there was another person who wanted to room with me back a few years ago. Things clicked at first but then i decided against it b/c it was bit frustrating. I was a day person, he was a night person.
It's not easy living with another person. There will always be issues. But there are issues living with your parents too. You can let a few bad experiences stop you from trying again, but you're only limiting yourself.
You mention you would say no if your parents tell you you must eat with them and the food is allergic. I have done the same thing it doesn't work. Also, yes i'm either Indian or Asian. I see one Indian person here and one asian person here that mentioned i must have indian or asian parents. I see how they understand it. I will also assume you are probably caucasian.
I'm part white and part Mexican.
You say how are they forcing me to eat food that will cause me to break out? I tell you why. They say its a tradition to eat with the family for our holidays and we have to eat these certain food as the tradition. So you can't really say no. Its like this. Imagine your family said you have to eat christmas dinner with your family but your acne has gotten so severe and everything they made is not healthy and you dont want to eat, you going to say no?
I don't know what to say, dude. You seem to have an answer for everything, so I'm not going to bother trying to help any more. I'm not sure why you posted this thread if you didn't want suggestions. It doesn't matter what culture you come from, it's up to you to stand up to your parents if they try to force you to eat something you don't want to. I've not eaten Christmas dinner with my family a number of times because of my food allergies. OR, as another poster suggested, I've cooked dinner for all of them. I've also made my own food and sat at the table while they ate theirs. There are a number of solutions but you don't want to hear any of them, it seems. So once again... I'm not sure why you posted this thread if you don't want to change anything.
Your problem seems to be that you can't stand up for yourself to your family and unfortunately, none of us can help you with that. You have to just do it, and not care if they get mad at you. Or, accept things how they are.
Good luck. <3
