Do not want to live with parents, need support

Asked by Female, 18, Single
I am a girl, aged 18 years. My times are actually too hard now. Not now, they are always. I want to move out of my parents house and I've thought about it a million times. I just need a support system. What am I supposed to do? Help me?

Hi there!
Being 18 is definitely a struggle. A struggle between freedom and responsibility, a struggle between independency and dependency, a struggle between who you are now and what you aspire to become. You might be having thousands of thoughts that have been coming through your mind and have no clue what to do. But you know what its absolutely ok to feel that way.

Fortunately or unfortunately, we as young adults depend on our parents especially when it comes to a financial support system. Moving away might give you the freedom and independency, but are you ready to support yourself?
