  • I want to leave my house. What should I do?

    I am a 14 year old girl, and I've always been a good kid for the most part. When I was younger, I always rebelled, I started hating the idea that religion made me and my parents grow together in a different manner. My parents are extremely religious, and they have used to bible to control my life. I have always though ignoring myself as non-religious, and my parents have said the harshest things about me because of my ideas. When I was little, my parents always treated me a bit different from the rest of my family since I am physically whiter than my siblings (I am Mexican). My parents, they view me as different. They treat me like I'm something else. They have used the harshest words around me, and they do not care about my feelings or the way their words impact me. I have attempted suicide over three times, but I'm even unsuccessful at that. My parents are emotionally and verbally abusing me, and I have gotten into cutting for about three years. I remember when I discovered music as my passion, they hated my style of music and judged me for it. They got me into smoking weed, but they later stopped me. But today, my urges to keep smoking heft higher, but I've been clean for about half a year. I need help! I hate the way my family treats me and makes me feel like I'm stupid and useless. The only person who seems to listen is my boyfriends of six months, we promised to stop smoking together and he listens to my every word, and he became a best friend to me. But my parents do not want me with a boyfriend. How do I deal with my being able to be with the only person who listens to me and get away from the people who weaken me everyday? Please be considerate and thank you!
