There are many stories on this site of young people still in an abusive situation. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

You said you want to someday meet a guy who "changes my life forever". I can understand why you feel that way. I felt that way once myself. But what I learned was that I had to be the one to change my own life. I had to be the one who brought happiness into my own life. Right now, that's so hard to do for you because you have no power to change what your parents are forcing you to do. All you can do is change the way you respond. Challenging, I know. Look for ways to enjoy what you're doing. If you keep hating all of it, more and more hatred will come into your life. But if you look for aspects that are enjoyable, even if you have to enjoy them in private, then it's always something to look forward to. Some brightness in the dark. You are not the lies you've been told about yourself. You ARE smart. You ARE worthy. You DO deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and love. Start by treating your Self in that way. Don't lose your Self in the abuse. You CAN rise above it. And then use it with great purpose. Don't give up. We need people like you in the world. You ARE loved. Remember that always. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

HI.

Right now your situation feels hopeless & you feel helpless. But this will not always be the case. Time goes by quickly , you will become older & wiser & more options will present them selves to you. For now you may need to stay in your current situation. but view it as a challenge - i.e. ( don't let them win ) take each situation and absorb it and let it make you mentally stronger. don't pin all your hopes on some guy saving the day - You may just end up being taken advantage of. build your mental strength & then leave. and back yourself to be able to provide for your self. I did it. you can to. If you need a friend to talk to I'm happy to be one. [Through comments here.]

So little love shown...

All those years of trying to please your parents and not seeing (nor receiving) love. My heart goes out to you.
