I feel like I'm lying all the time to my friends. I cant tell them anything because I live in a toxic household and have to keep it a secret or they will snitch to teachers. I have to lie to my strict parent all the time and ugh I just hate lying

I had this exact problem when I was like 11/12. I’m 18 now and I still live in my toxic household but my perspective has changed completely on the abuse !! It’s honestly really hard and I understand how horrible it feels to be lying all the time. Do you think you could tell one of your friends even a tiny detail about your household situation? I personally started by telling one friend that my parents don’t cook dinner for me and then it expanded from there over months of tiny chats and talking!! It’s never your fault that you were born into this household so don’t let it dictate your life sis. Even though that is much easier said than done! The easiest way out is getting out mentally before you physically move out, esp if you’re quite young.

I have lyed about my parents profession, my home life etc. I hate it. Especially since one of my parents is an alcoholic, I can't tell my friends or they will go to social services. I also have very strict parents so I usually lie to them normally. I hate being an imposter

How do you know that they’ll snitch? Even if they do what’s the worst that could happen?
Just tell them not to tell anyone. If they’re genuinely your friends they’ll understand.

A real friend wouldn't want me to experience what i'm experiencing so therefore will tell and if social services get involved they will take me away from my mum

Anyone wouldn’t want you to experience what you’re experiencing regardless if they’re your friend or kit and ok good bcuz you said she’s toxic so...

But she can’t be that bad. Can you elaborate? If she doesn’t abuse you then you shouldn’t be complaining tbh she’s just being a mum

You might think she’s being too strict but she obviously wants the best for you especially if you’re her only child.
