Turning 24 in a month & am fearing growing older, feels like my years as a “young adult” are almost over

I’m gonna be honest this is the first time I’ve ever heard of anyone being in a similar situation that I went through, & I can truthfully tell you that I feel for you & understand how you feel.. I got out of the house in April of this year.. & truthfully life has gotten a ton better,

I thought it would never end & that I was simply trapped. I was watching all my friends & life carry on as usual, & I still think about how I didn’t deserve to have that happen to me. & neither do you.

My best possible advice to you, I know situations can be very hard, & it’s not as easy as “move out”. But by any way possible you have to. 25 is not late 20’s, & as scared as I am (obviously because of my post) I still know we are young.

It’ll get better, you just have to get out of the environment. I waited around with my family too thinking it would end, it still hasn’t & if I didn’t leave I’d still be in the same position.

No matter what, you just have to make that choice for yourself & leave. Trust me it’s the best thing for you & your physical/mental health.
