Abusive Parents and Stepparent, I want to move away forever.


Abusive Parents and Stepparent, I want to move away forever.

This is my first post here, my first real post. I’m 16 years old living on the East Coast (US) and I was raised in one town all of my life, I have never known anything different. I won’t go in detail about what my parents have done, but my father was/is the mainly physical abuser with emotional abuse attributes, my mother is mainly the emotional abuser but she’s been physical a couple times, and my stepmother is emotionally abusive, but only sometimes. Because of the abuse I’ve been really attached to inanimate objects (no attraction or anything, I don’t wanna screw a car) and I am attached to them because of the good memories they give. The biggest attachment is my hometown, and even traveling away from home I get extremely homesick, to the point where I’m physically sick. Sometimes it can happen just 3 hours after I leave town. I also have severe social anxiety, which leads me to be craving home. After I move out, I want to move away and cease contact with my family. I want to live in a town similar, with only about a million people, oak trees, hills, with a main-street with neon lights decorating the buildings, just like home, one of the only things that can make me happy. However, I don’t know where to go, or if it’s even possible to leave. I don’t know if I can live in a place where I can love it just as much as home.
