My son graduated from college last summer (Emerson College in Boston). He came home to Maryland and spent the fall with my husband and me. He worked, saved up some money, and spent time building his portfolio (he is a film major, with interest in animation).
This past weekend, he moved back to Boston. We drove him and his things and helped him move in with a friend. When we left him, my heart broke. On one hand, I am so happy that he wants to spread his wings and is taking the leap.
My main worry however is that at this point, he doesn't have a job lined up. He has paid his January rent and has enough to live on for about a month, but I am so worried about how he is going to make this work financially. Even if he lands a job right away, it will be hard to make enough for living expenses, esp his Feb 1st rent payment. I want him to succeed so badly!!! My husband and I have had many conversations with him, and he is confident that he can make it work, even if he just gets a restaurant job initially.
So my heart is hurting from missing him, coupled with worry about his finances.
Has anyone had a grown child move away under somewhat tenuous circumstances? Any advice or consolation?
