I am 18 and already feel like my life is going to be miserable from here on out, how can I be optimistic?

It is like life has thrown a brick at me every time.

- I never had stability, learned English at the age of 11 but can speak it fluently now.
- From the age of 13 to now (I am 19 now) I have been this piece of crap town which is poor as heck, full of gangs, full of rednecks, full of excess poverty, I mean there is nothing here at all.
- I did not get to go to a good university because my high school was so freaking crappy and we barely had anything we could put on our resume.
- I had a rough first semester of college, second semester is almost over too.

I mean I don't think I will end up being anything in life because the opportunity is just never ever there. I am 19, they say college years are supposed to be the best years of your life, and I am so freaking miserable because I have crappy strict parents who won't let me get a job, won't let me apply for a scholarship, and push me into a major I do not want to be in.

Answer on I am 18 and already feel like my life is going to be miserable from here on out, how can I be optimistic?

I'm experiencing the same situation as you except I am about to go to college. I hate the town I live in and I just want to get out. Unfortunately, my parents don't want to help me pay for a college outside of this town so I will be forced to go to it's crappy school. Since you are over 18 though, you have every right to get your own job. You're an adult and they can no longer stop you from doing what you want. I suggest you get a job, save up the money and then once you make enough you can go wherever you want. Hope I helped!
