I just moved out on my own this past weekend for the first time and I am more nerveous than excited about it.
My family thinks it is a bad idea because of some problems that I have, including a disabilitgy I have, and that I am somewhat immature for my age.
I moved into a cono with three other guys in my church, and they--as well as some other friemds--are helping me out with things that I need.
When I was living at home I was living in a very abusive envirnment (mostlyverbal abuse). I have tried to move out before, but things didn't work out and I remained at home.
I don't have much money and really can't afford to move out, but because of the abuse I was dealing with, my church leader and friends strongly advised me to move immediately and the Church will help with the expenses. My church leader said that the Church will cover my deposit and rent for October as well as my therapy (which I was paying for). I was also told that I won't have to worry about food as it will be taken care of.. all these for at least a little while anyway.
The other night I got talking with one of my roommates and somehow the topic of me being abused came up. I don't remember why I told him, but I did. However, I don't really regret it or feel bad about it because I guess it's because it isn't my fault that I was abused--some of the time anyway. My roommate seemed very concerned and wanting to help. How should I deal with this? The only people who know about my abuse are my closest friends and those who need to know, like a therapist or religious leader.
