not sure... family, bye - August 29th 2015, 04:37 AM

I'm getting ready to move out into a church families house. There have been issues between my family and I for a long time. My church family will be able to provide me a more stable support system. I'm going to miss my parents a lot though. I love them even though I have been hurt by them. My mom told me she can not live with me and I'm very understanding to that. So with my willingness I'm leaving on good terms so that she can't kick me out. I just feel so guilty about leaving. I love them but I know this will help with my relationship with the Lord. I guess I'm just scared because I'm actually getting myself out of the circumstances I've been in for the past years...

I don't know much about church housing, but it sounds like this could be a really positive thing for you. It's understandable that you're a bit cautious of it - they're your family and you love them, there's nothing wrong with that! But there's also nothing wrong with doing what's best for you. You have needs and addressing them in this way might help you. I'm really glad that you're leaving it on such a positive note - it sounds like you're very mature about the situation and you definitely know what will help you best.

Keep us updated about how everything goes! Try and stay positive, life can get better and you seem to be taking the first steps towards that. Please don't feel guilty about that.

Congratulations on taking a step which you feel is best for you. I'm sorry things are so complicated with your family, but at the end of the day, try to remember that you have to do what you feel is best. Good luck!

Hi there.

I'm sorry to hear you have a complicated and tough relationship with your family but I am glad you're taking positive steps for yourself. Maybe this is the best thing and maybe not being with your family all the time will help you have a better relationship with them which would be really nice. Its always scary moving out of home and going somewhere new but you're a strong person by the sounds of it and I am sure you are going to be just fine but if you need us, remember we're always here so don't be alone!

Take good care,

Hi there, Hazel!

I'm sorry you've experienced such troubles with your family to have to do this in the first place, but while I don't know very much about church housing, it sounds like it could be a very positive thing for you especially to get out of your current environment. Even though this change is probably scary, remind yourself that you're doing what's best for you and that this will most likely improve your life.

You obviously love and care for your family a lot but try not to be too hard on yourself. Right now, you need to look after your emotional health. Perhaps later on you could try and reconcile with your family after each of you have had time away from each other to think things over and such? The fact that you want to become closer to God also is wonderful and I hope you can. Take care and feel free to reach out here. Let us know how things go? I wish you the best of luck.
