How to deal with feeling trapped? Anonymous 64296

I feel like I'm trapped with men in my life, making my life considerably less happy and more cumbersome. It feels like I have no control over my life. I just want to be free, but it feels like it'll never happen. Does anyone have experience feeling this way, and how did you/do you deal with it?

Feeling the same way too. Feeling like my parents live a quiet life and thus I'm more chained to them in this house. I'm not like my siblings who have the connections and ability to move out.

That is my exact situation.

Which men are you reffering to ? coworkers ? acquaintances ? family ?
Because it's your right to spend as little time as possible with men, and even cut them off if you can.

Freedom is also a little scary, which is maybe part of what's keeping you feeling trapped. What's the first step you can think of to get some more of this freedom you're craving?

Luckily, they're men who I could cut out of my life, but it's easier said than done. It's just that the circumstances make it difficult. So, realistically, I'm not as trapped as I feel. But at this point in my life, I really don't want to be tethered to anyone else, and I feel troubled by the fact that my time and space is so occupied by them. It's suffocating. Aside from logistical things that will help in the short term, I need to think about what I can do to prevent myself from feeling stuck again in the future. My problem is that I go along with things because I feel like I'm supposed to, and before I know it, I'm in a situation/relationship that's causing me stress that I can't easily get out of.
