Like.. obsesses about it to the point of tears? I bought a condo nov 2019. Basically my parents said I couldn’t take care of a home myself. It was fine and I wanted their support. I love my condo, it’s single story, can’t hear my neighbors, has a sweet atrium. But for the price I paid, I could’ve bought a four bedroom house in another city, or a smaller home in the historic wealthy central neighborhoods. Now in the past 1.5 years, I’ve been priced out of anywhere I’d remotely want to live. We are due with a baby in 2 months. I can’t see us living here longer than 2 years max with a kid.
I know this is nothing new, not a unique problem. I just feel so depressed I didn’t buy a home then, and now feel I never may be able to afford one. I’m so jealous of my friends with homes, that bought years ago and pay next to nothing, or during covid with super low interest rates.
I’ve actually tried to see a therapist, lol. It didn’t go well. I think I need to unsubscribe from these subs, I’m not looking now but the regret and dread feels paralyzing. Thanks for giving me the space to vent.
