Ok- Please read this if you are good at giving advice. I am 16-will be 17 in August. I have recently been in church then had sex with some one in church not to mention fingering 2 other females from church, flipped my car, blew a motor, got drunk twice and lied to my mother all within the last five months, oh yeah and got a 200 dollar speeding ticket. I feel like i did all these things to just get them out of the way while i can. I have never been like this. I have always been the "geek" who said "NO" but that just slipped away. Heres my question. Home life is really hard now and stressfull, i live with my mom and "step-dad" if you will. I can either stay here, go to my dads house where the money isnt as good, and my mom says that if i go there that she is taking away my car and cell, and again the money isnt good there-so that sucks, or i can move in with a friend of mine who is ,22?is a male.( he is very religous and wouldnt let me do those things but my mom says " just dont get her preganent or in trouble with the law) And that idea sound AWESOME to move in with him but i dont know if i could make it financialy. What do i do!?!?! I really want to move out but have limited resouces. PLEASE HELP ME.
Moving away from home...
I think in a situation like this it can be useful to take a piece of paper, divide it into two columns headed "Advantages" and "Disadvantages", and divide it crossways into three areas for the three possibilities. Then you fill in all the advantages and disadvantages you can think of, including not only the present but also the future. This helps get your thoughts clear and helps you see things more clearly. You also may start to work out how to cope with some disadvantages.
