I turned 18 this July. Like any other teenager I was excited and hoped that it would be a life changing event. Well, it was eventful. I got a call from my house while I was away celebrating. This time it was uglier than ever. What had happened was simply beyond my comprehension!
After that incident my mother started living with my Nani, and I'm still living with my father. They're now fighting on their divorce case, which has left me in a vulnerable state. I just passed class 12 with good scores and look forward to be a journalist. I have received multiple admission offers and one of the colleges has even offered a me a 50% scholarship, which brings the fees down to about 5 lakhs. But I'm stuck in a situation where one of my parents doesn't have the means and other one doesn't have the will to support me. None of the known ones I've asked, have stepped forward to help me either.
I need to pay a minimum fees of 40k soon to book my seat, else it would be passed on to someone else. At the very least, I need to move out of this house for my mental peace, even if I don't get college admission. I feel mentally and physically harassed in that house. I have felt suicidal at times and I don’t want my mom to suffer for taking any drastic step.I tried my luck in graphic designing or writing roles, but I wasn't seriously considered for my age, experience or that fact that I don’t own a laptop. I then approached companies such as Swiggy, Zomato and Dunzo to be a delivery boy, but they turned me away since I don't own a bike. I don’t know what else to do. I don't know what to do about my life right now. A college would ensure a decent job after 4 years, and then I then I can live with and take care of my mother. But it seems to be a far fetched dream right now.
