  • Help for a 19 year old in life

    Hi there, I'm 19 going on 20 this June. Life is okay considering mental issues (depression and anxiety) and not so great parents. I have college plans but no way to execute them. My mental issues are docile away from home and have made me realize that leaving home is my only option in life. The problem is I have no idea what and how to do it. Currently, I am a recent high school graduate with no job experience (my only experience in life at all is really my self-taught art) and no money. Due to my parents, I have to scrap any idea of having them help me because having them as a life support connections allow control of my life which I can't allow after their actions and attitudes nearly putting me over the edge with depression. I know it'll be harder without them as help but it's a necessity. If anyone can give me any kind of advice and help I would be grateful. Whatever can help me get my life on the right path, I would appreciate it.
