Support me in moving out

Hi everyone, I thought I’ll give this a try to ask for support. I’m Thalia and I’m fundraising to move out from my parents home. I’ve been living with my parents for a year. I’m thankful for their support in providing me somewhere to sleep, shower and eat. Although, I haven’t been really transparent with no one really about my current home situation. For safety and to protect others, I will not provide too much details. My mental health and emotional health has been facing troubling moments. I don’t have the greatest relationship with one of my parents. It’s been draining and emotionally exhausting to be on defense mode. My boundaries are constantly stepped on/disrespected and harassed. Throughout this pandemic, I’ve been holding onto this living situation to save money and hoping to move out. Currently I’m working at a part-time job and starting a new part time job for the weekends soon. I quit my last job due to pressure I couldn’t handle from work and at home. I haven’t felt my fullest for a while now, don’t have the space to fully thrive and importantly feel safe to do so. I came back to NYC on September 2019 because I didn’t have no job or any money from the last city I was living at Tacoma, Washington of last year. I was paying a $980/ month rent from March 2019 to August 2019 which took a lot from my savings last year since I was an undergrad student during those times as well and was unemployed for a bit. I decided to move back with my parents to get back on my feet and hoping that most of the traumatic experiences I grew up in where gone. It was a hard decision too... since I was also homesick. I had hope that things would be better and through this past year it’s been a different story. I’m in a toxic relationship with one of my parents and I see how it’s affecting my family members. My parent and I too. I’m aware that I’m an adult and can leave. Although I do need financial support. I would love to have my own space again. To grow and heal. Currently I live with my family members in a single room. I see a lot how it plays a role with my family relationships. My hope is to move out soon... My hope is to refocus on my goals and dreams... My hope is to keep growing... My hope is to not burn those bridges with the people I love... My hope is to be mentally stable to fully thrive... Family is very important to me and I believe that space is as well. My goal is to get a room for myself and raise $5,000 I would like to still reside in my city. I am looking for a room mostly in the New York City areas I grew up in. I need a room to concentrate, have the space to work, make art and fully connect with myself. The funds will be used for security deposit, first and last month rent + utilities. Transportation to move- I don’t have much to move either way. And for basic furniture. I understand that we are in troubling times, so don’t feel pressured. I’ll be grateful for your support. Thank your for your time and stay safe.
