  • Family problems

    Hello, I am a 14-year-old girl that doesn't feel like herself around her ENTIRE family. They're Christian and I feel as if I can't just be myself because I've been going to church since I was a little girl. They are also so obsessed with the idea that I need to be "saved" to go to heaven that it gives them the urge to act as if they were police officers. For example, they're always looking through all of my friends' social media accounts to see if they're a good influence or not, they always find someone to stalk me whenever I go out just so that that person can tell my family what I'm doing etc. They even threaten to throw my ex-boyfriend in jail when he never did anything to harm me even though my parents didn't know I was with him and they recently found out because of some stalker I'm not aware of at school. I feel like running away or staying at a friend's house for a week to get my mind off everything but I just don't know what I should do... I feel the need to express myself and tell them I don't like that they're always going through my phone, trying to find out what random callers look like to see if I know them, only letting me hang out with Christian girls, etc.
