Okay so I've been in a relationship with this guy for nearly 2 years now. He is of a different faith and my family disprove majorly. They have treated me lovingly up until the past year when they found out about my secret relationship. I've been feeling so isolated. It's almost like their happiness matters over mines and that reputation is far more important than me. Arguments happen everyday where I'm verbally and mentally abused. I can't even leave the house without supervision and cannot go to the uni of my choice because they believe my boyfriend will be attending there too. It's affecting me in a depressive and negative way. I understand that faith is important but I have lived the past 18 years in the way they have asked me to do so. But the moment something finally makes me happy I'm asked to leave it behind for them. Anyways in a few months, 8 to be precise, there's university. I'm planning to cut family ties and move out to university without informing them. However, the feeling of guilt I feel is so strong. I don't know how I'll cope. Am I making the right decision? Please help I'm so worried.
