They say they don't like the way I talk or think and say my personality is low cause of it. I can't help who I am, and yes I am mentally slow or maybe not cause they always told me that. I never asked for money I always coped with the amount iv been given since I was 18 which was only $40 a month, but now I'm 25 I'm trying to get a job and complet my GED but its very hard for me they think anything I do is a waste of time but I love art I love drawing... its not like I'm a spoiled brat I don't ask for anything I don't have anything not even cloths... i never had friends or a boyfriend either cause they never allowed it... im so tired of there judgment they tell me I don't want to believe there words but why should I? It sounds toxic to me I don't want to see myself as a negative image, I want to feel strong and beautiful...
My family judges me for who I am?

I know exactly how you feel. I'm on the same boat.
I spent years and years listening to my family saying I was dumb, stupid, that I couldn't do anything by myself.
You listen to their words so many times, that it comes a point when you believe them.
And that's when you don't believe in yourself anymore. They destroy your self-confidence.
It takes a long time, until you overcome this. You'll need to be patient, wise and never lose hope.
Whenever you're feeling down or every morning when you wake up, just look at yourself at the mirror and say:
"I'm strong, I'm smart, I'm beautiful and I'm gonna make it!". Soon you'll start to believe in those words and you'll start changing the way you see yourself.
Hope this helps.

Try a women's shelter, Salvation Army or even the police station, not to file a report but to see if they have nonprofits that might help you out. Also call a Catholic Church merely ask to speak to their homeless advocate. They help more than just the homeless.
You need a GED to get a job but your situation is a trap that will never help you get one. They can put you in transitional housing and help you get your GED then a job. Best of luck.1
