  • My sister and I want to move to another country for college


    I am 19 years old and my sister is 18. We want to move abroad for college but our parents do not want to.

    My father and mother are both narcissists and sociopaths, they do not want us to leave the country. Even they are divorced but my father spends his money on unnecessary things such as paying for prostitutes.

    My sister and I want to run away without telling them but we do not have a lot of money and our mother stole everything that we had saved in 5 years.

    We do not know what to do and my mother always likes to be in control so she doesn't want us to be free or happy.

    Currently, we are selling almost all of our stuff to get some money, but I don't know if it is going to be enough to survive. Also, our dream is to live in NYC but we are southamerican so if we move there the student visa will not allow us to work. That is why we are considering moving to Spain.

    We need advice as to how to plan this ahead because we plan on leaving without telling our parents.

    Thank you.
