  • try to be independent, get a car and a job, save up some money 2k-4k and get some close friends to find a place near your job and/or local college. share rent and help each other emotional. keep working and think about your future in what you want to do while enjoying it. plan your college while pursuing job promotions to help support yourself for future problems. easier said than done but the first step is to plan it all before moving ahead.

  • Taleets, find a way to make it on your own. Get out from under any abuse, and the sooner the better. Don't be obligated by finances. It will be hard to get out from under his rule, but the inner strength and confidence that will result will be worth something more than money. Your self-esteem will grow and you will become the person you want to be. I'm glad you haven't attempted suicide, that it never the answer. You are awesome! Don't let anybody tell or treat you otherwise.

  • Start having fun. Watch some movies, play some games, listen to music. That was for calming down. Now, you'll realize what exactly makes you happy when you're actually enjoying yourself, make sure it's some activity though (listening to jokes are enjoyable but don't get you anywhere in life). Whatever it is, astronomy, music, acting, engineering, start working on them. :)

    PS: Don't ever, EVER think about suicide. You're gonna hurt people who truly love you.

    • i really never had to lift a finger which i regret now

    • yeah I don't know too much about it either, I'm only 17 but I'll learn either the easy way or the hard way. but in the end I still will have learned some way

  • Your 18 find a friend who will be their for you and listen to you. Don't hurt yourself save up some money, get a job, go to college build your life and get away from him. Talk to a grandpa, grandma, aunt, uncle about it. Maybe they can help you get out faster. I don't know your full situation. But hurting yourself is never the right answer

    • he is going to buy me an apartment next year but i still feel stuck in his rules. i have to go to college have to live on campus and he won't give me a car

    • "he he he he he"... work for your own stuff, stop freeloading. That way he won't have the upper-hand on you. Stop being lazy.

    • you are not helping at all

  • Seriously you wanna kill yourself over that? I could understand if you had like some really shitty disease or were abused physically or even really emotionally. Grow thicker skin I guess your 18 its not the end of the world and just finish school.

  • It's not worthy of dying! Don't give up! Always remember that many other people went through much harder problems in life and haven't gave up and succeeded in life! Don't feel sorry for yourself, but stand up and DO SOMETHING for making your life better!
    I'm actually stuck in life, I'm going to college and I haven't passed any exam for last 6 months, but I won't give up and I will finish that college and build my career!
    Also I'm a Christian and trusting God really helps me with going through hard situations​. God has answered so many of my prayers​ that I can not deny His existence. Speak to Him with all of your being and He will answer. Peace upon you and God bless you.

  • If your dad has always been a bad dad? Then to Hell with him and second stop saying stupid shit. Like you want to kill yourself. Listen your 18 what do you like to do? What do you enjoy? If you don't work get a job or go back to school you can become anything in life. But only if are not afraid to challenge yourself. Surround yourself with good people not stupid asses who do dumb shit. Think about what you want out of life and then go get it. Remember nothing comes easy in life that's not worth keeping. Set little by little goals for yourself that you can reach, money, car, bank, savings, things like that your going to need them anyways before you know it your life will be totally worth living and sharing even if it's with a jackass father...

  • You gotta realize you´re the owner of your happiness, no one can completely take it away from you. Feeling stuck in life is more common than you think. At your age probably you don´t know for sure what you want to do, where you want to go, with who you want to spend the rest of your life with, but know this, for every stuck there is an out, everything has a solution, suicide is not even near a solution, is an eternal scape to what could have been better by changing a negative outlook for a positive one.

  • Start fresh dear. :) or be happy, meditate, clear ur mind.. Meet new happy people and live life to the fullest.. every person had difficult situation in their life. It's not a huge problem. He's still your father and as you said, he gives you funds. Just let the time pass by and your problem will fade away. Time is so fast you won't notice. I had the same prob girl. :)
