Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,262 People

    When I was 8 I was taken away from my parents.

    And you would think that would be traumatizing for me, but it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I was healthy and happy, and I wasn't in a negative environment... And then my aunt kicked me out of her house because she thought it would save her marriage.. Never...

    Hate is such a strong word.

    I don't hate living with my parents it's just annoying sometimes. I want to have friends over when I want to. Be able to walk around naked if I want ( probably wouldn't). I just want to have the freedom to go and come as I please without the questions or intrusions.

    I cant wait to move out.

    I really dont care if I will end up living with roommates I wont like. As long as Im away from my parents. I cant handle the sexism, racism, homophobia and mental abuse anymore. I just want to walk out and never look back.
