  • I’m 18 and ready to leave ASAP

    So, I’m 18 Years old kinda the okay age to start thinking about leaving your parents house if you didn’t go to college right. Well not in my case, I was raised Muslim in an African home , very traditional very strict , growing up I never really agreed with my family I was always the odd ball, now I’m ready to move out all the disagreements the arguing , lack of freedom, getting told what to do really gets to me. In fact I plan on leaving in a month, how do I go about leaving? Do I just up and leave? Do I write a letter about how I feel then leave? I need answers
