    Hey there, first of all try to calm down and think more rationally! You don't want to kill yourself because of your step dad. Instead you have to find ways to escape that place. May I ask what's your mum's place in that? Doesn't she support you? If not,it seems like your step dad is being manipulative to both of you and maybe your mom is miserable too. How old are you? You should discuss it further with your mother! Best of luck,keep us updated!

      Sumayah,

      You have my total sympathy..... Family life is not always hearts and flowers for everyone. Some times our childhood, our parents or relatives can leave the deepest scars and be the hardest to heal.

      Here is my advice to you.

      Your mother had chosen this man. Was it a good idea? Judging by your description of family life? No. Probably not.

      But your mother has chosen him. This is her choice.

      One of the hardest lessons in life is to learn that we cannot change people and we cannot alter their choices, even when those choices are harmful to themselves and those they love.

      Your mother will have to make her own decisions and you will have to accept them. However hard.

      In life we cannot control anyone but ourselves. You can control how your life will be and where you can go from here.

      What you need to put into play her is called self preservation. It means that you need to ensure that you give yourself as many options as possible.

      Study hard and find yourself a job that you succeed in and enjoy. Money gives us choices.

      You do not always have to live at home. With some money in your pocket you have options. You may even know a friend who is willing to rent a small place with you...you are not tied to what is happening indoors.

      Now is not forever.

      Look out for yourself and do what is right and beneficial to you. We can only control ourselves. Your hope is not lost

      However her mum might want to escape that place as well but she might be to scared to say. She should discuss it with her mum first of all and then I totally agree with what you said!

      I agree with you. I assumed that as the behaviour was continuing indoors that the mother is unsure as to how to deal with it...

      But you are very right. I hope that she tells her mother how hard she finds things. We can't change what we don't always know about.
