I’m sorry your dad has been dealing with health issues.

Go – you already know it’s what you want. You are a grown woman and it’s your life. Live it for you, not for your parents or anyone else. If they get upset, that’s on them to deal with their feelings about it. You’re not responsible for how they manage their emotions. Kids everywhere grow up and move away from home and parents everywhere learn to accept that.

Also – your sister is being kind of shitty. She does not have the right to tell you how to live your life either. If she feels so guilty about being far away from your parents, she could get therapy or move home or find some other way to deal with her feelings that doesn’t involve trying to get you to give up your dream so she can live hers guilt-free. Gross.

Go, and have a wonderful time.
