Ive just put down my deposit for a Winter Europe trip for early 2019!
Ive been so keen and excited and everyone else has been really great about it except for my over-protective, anxious, helicopter mum.
Im one of three triplets and my mum has brought us up on her own so i can understand why is she is scared and worried about me going on this trip and her fear of something happening. I dont know how to console her or help her feel at ease about it. Its literally got to the point where she is saying she will give me the money back for the deposit ive paid and its all just making me feel anxious and rethinking the trip.
I myself suffer from anxiety and the fear that something bad is going to happen to someone i care about so i understand what shes feeling. But i also feel like this is something i have to do. That the feeling of independence and achievement is going to be out-of-this-world once i come home.
Has anybody else had experience with a freaked-out parent like this? And has anyone done a big Europe trip with Topdeck on their own (being initially anxious about it) and have been okay??
