My father is verbally abusive

Growing up in a Sri Lankan background family has been really tough for me. I’ve struggled to be a family with my family for as far as I can remember. Im a first year apprentice and I don’t earn much and everything I earn I pay off my fines and also I love food so I spend on food. Lately my father has been real abusive to me verbally. Knowing I don’t have any money with me he abusses me so much verbally that it makes me want to kill my self. The thoughts of how to suicide comes into mind. I recently joined Western Sydney uni to study because l lost my licence and my job fired me. With the remaining money I had, I bought my self a motorbike to work on at home so I can still Persue my interests and not just sit in my room

all the time. Mentally I think I’m broken. My father has affected me so much that I am unable to laugh or smile. I need help, I need to get away from this environment. I need peace. It’s not fun waking up each morning wanted to end my life, because just as my father says, maybe I am

worthless and waste of space after all.

Thank you very much for reaching out. I’ve read the guidelines, I don’t
know how to put that into play. I just spoke open to mind. I’m very sorry
if I wasn’t meant to. Tonight I’m sleeping in front of my house on the
veranda chair. My father was yelling so much and was very abusive that I
decided to just keep quiet and leave the house. I’m
Just sleeping at the front.

Hey @LankanBeast please don't stress re. the guidelines, we know how difficult it can be to express how you're feeling, we just try to be a bit mindful when posting but the guidelines @Taylor-RO  linked you to should help. How are things going for you today?
