As Long As I Live There

Posted by | March 06, 2014 | Family | One Comment

I am attending my last year of high school and I plan on going to a community college to study. Things at home are not good for me at all emotionally me and my mom do not get along at all we have never ever gotten along. We have had are good times but more bad times then good. We recently got into an argument were she basically told me some hurtful things while yelling at me just because I went out with some friends.

She told me that as long as I live in her house I have to do what she said or I can get out of her house. And I personally don’t want to live here anymore but as a high school student who doesn’t work I have no where to go. I wanted to know if there was anywhere I could go to anywhere I could live till the time being.

I know this going to sound really bad but there are days where I just hate my mom to the fullest and wished id never have to see her again in my life. Like you might not get it but my mom can be a very mean, harsh, strict, scary, hurtful person in the world. And emotionally I cant take it anymore I rather just run away but I know that would only make things worse. Please help me!  ​

    Thank you so much for reaching out for help! You’re right, running away is not the answer and it will only make this situation worse. It’s really great that you are able to see that and decided to reach out for some support first.

    It sounds like you and your mother are going through a difficult time right now and the communication may not be going too well. I’m sure that both of you have said some things you did not mean out of anger and high emotions. Things can certainly get out of hand quickly and it’s understandable that you are wanting to get away from that environment.

    Since you are still in high school, we would like to suggest an alternative for you. Maybe it would make things a little easier if you stayed somewhere else just over the weekends. That way you can still be with your mother and attend school but you can both get a little break from each other over the weekend.

    Talk with your mother and see if there is a family member who would be willing to take you in and see if that relieves some of the tension between the two of you. We know it may not be what you’re looking for but it would be a whole lot easier than trying to live on your own or in a shelter. Please think about it.
