Hi! I am currently 20 years old. I am attending college full-time and working full-time. I am still residing with my parents. Not by choice, but because my whole life ive been taught i am unable to surivive without my all wise father. I feel as if i am in a prison. Ive attempted to move out on my own only to get discouraged that i cant succeed without the help of my father and i cant do anything on my own. I apparently have $8,000 in a bank account. My dad has had control over it for about 8 years now. I am to receive this money on account that i baptize myself into my parents religion. :( I have been controlled by my dad my whole life and im smart enough to know i cant depend on him forever just for a roof over my head. I am in a college program that i do not like because its the one my father believes is the only thing i can do. I feel as if i have no potential in life or individuality. I just want to move out. I pay all my own personal bills. i am struggling so hard i only makw $2.50/ hour. Being in college just makes it so much harder to get enough hours to fully support myself. I have ven contemplated dropping out and working more. I feel like i just cant do it anymore. My grades are slipping and i feel like a failure to my parents. If i dont graduate im going to be in the food service industry forever like my dad says and wont amount to squat ugh. Please help me. My dad will never support any decision i make unless its deemed right by him. I just wish to be independent and in search of a little assistance to get on my feet since i have no help from family.
