I can see you as a very bold and brave girl. with this boldness why can't you talk to your parents?? you need to make this point clear to your parents what your desires and dreams are and make them understand.. you are just 18 and it is the correct time to stand for your point.

Do not want to live with parents, need support

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...

Other people around you seem to be taking over your life and dictating their terms. When this happens, there might be times when you feel useless and depressed. The...
