For The Summers Stuck At Home

A lot of us can’t wait for the summer to come. Warmer weather, vacations, the beach; the season is made for relaxing and enjoying yourself…but for the kids, the teens, and the young adults out of school for the summer, they’re anything but relaxed. If you have a loving home and beautiful family to experience your freed up time with, it can be amazing, but for a family that’s abusive, physically and emotionally…you’re not only miserable, but you’re trapped.

You try doing everything you can to get out of the house, hang out with as many friends as you possibly can, despite how broke you are, and fill up your time any way that you can….but at the end of the night, you have to eventually go home. You’re uncomfortable and not happy, worst of all you’re scared, and you start to see pictures of the people you care about with their loving families, and the pain feels twice as bad.

You can’t change your family, not really anyway, but you have the chance to change your experiences. Remember, in those dark times, when you’re feeling lost and worthless, when you’ve seen the last happy family picture you can possibly stand…always sit back and remember, you’re not alone. We’re here for you, and you can always come to this site to know that you are supported and cared for. 

You’re not alone. Your family might not be the ones to comfort you when you’re lost and down, but somebody will understand you, be compassionate, and will relate to you like you never thought you could relate to somebody before.  Although it may not completely replace or make up for your actual family, you can create your own “family.”
