I'm So Tired Of It All...

My dad literally just punched me in the face about 10 minutes ago. I wear glasses and now he's broken them for the THIRD time. We don't have the money to pay for another pair! I'm crying right now not because I'll have another bruise in the morning, but because I won't be able to see my face to put on makeup to cover it up. I'm sick and tired of him telling me I'm a mistake. He says he never wishes I was born the way I was. I am a biracial (black & white) girl, so he thinks I don't fit in anywhere. I have friends, but he says they don't like me. I don't have a boyfriend, so he thinks I'm antisocial. I am a straight A sophomore in high school, and I don't have time for one. He doesn't even drink! He hits my mom and me while in his right mind...I'm tired of it...I don't know what to do...

Honey you need to get out of that situation, it would be great if your mom would get out too but we can't speak for her. There are people who will help you, if you have to go to child protective services or talk to the school counselor. This is a very hard predicament to be in, but no matter what you must never allow yourself to believe any of those horrible things he sais to you, no one is a mistake, God brought you into this world for a reason, pray for him to show you the way out and then take it and don't look back. It may reveal itself to you in a way you never envisioned to try to withold your expectations, when it gets hard ask for the strength to carry on. Have faith.
