>>23308921 Pretty much every homeless person I met.
I've bought a lot of homeless people lunch, and I often ask them to tell me their story if I'm not busy and have to get somewhere right away. The most common thread is leaving home young without being able to make a living. It's basically impossible to pull yourself out of crushing poverty like that (always one paycheck from complete disaster) - especially if you're below average intelligence in the first place.
That's why I get really bothered when my mother threatens to kick me out. I'd be doomed to living with random roommates or being homeless probably for the rest of my life.
Yeah, when I was 17 I started saving up money from my job at Walmart. Two days after I graduated, I bought a plane ticket and flew to another state and transferred my Walmart job. When I got there, I found an apartment for $500 a month, and I kept working until I could buy a car, a new wardrobe, and a computer. It's been two years, and now I go to college while living off student loans and grants, since I have no family support.
I would say it's worth it. I'm a completely different person now, but moving to a new place does isolate you and make you lonely. Haven't talked to family in two years. They probably think I'm a loser, but I'll visit them after I graduate from college.
Unless they are really abusive, if it's even TOLERABLE, stay with your parents, but use your dislike of them to fuel your motivation to work hard and get the fuck out.
Don't do something rash. Use your daily hatred of your parents to make you work your ass off for six months so you can afford your own place. Once you get out, you'll be on a firm footing, and you'll never have to look back.
nah I'm quite the opposite. The only reason I'm still alive is my mom. It's why I'm pursuing a live of a corporate slave so I can make her happy and think one of her sons was a "success" at least. God forbid if she dies, I'm just going to kill myself.
>>23308921 Me. When I was 13, something happened, cant remember but I was like fuck it. Just upped and left. Went to my school playground, it was nighttime, sat on the swing for about 30minutes and then said fuck it and I went back home and played gameboy
