    Some of us are not able to be adults.

    We can't handle the stress and requirements needed to fill the shoes. We need strong people to take the lead. In the absence if strong people, we fail.

    I'm 19 years old and my parents want me out.

    It's really hard to find something to want to live for right now. I have no loving family and no friends that live near me. I'm getting depressed. My dad is pressuring me to do so much and it's really getting to me.
