My parents are on my neck, they tell me that my opinion is useless, and it is only theirs that stands, they control my friendships and my outings. My social life is a mess and I’m going slowly into depression. They want me to marry at a young age and forcefully frustrate me till I get married and not fulfill my dreams, I am presently living a life I do not want for myself. They tell me that I can only do a master’s program only if I marry. I’ve tried communicating with them, but all proved abortive. They tell me that it is not their business if I am not happy. And that they want the best for me.
This doesn’t seem like the best cause, I got a Job that I was interested in, and they forcefully made me to cancel the job so as to work in a place that pleases them. I tried everything I could, but they beat me mercilessly. I am 21 years old and all I keep hearing is you are useless until you get married. They say it is until I get married that I can become free; that all my opinions are useless. I am slowly hating this thing called marriage because of them. I’m so frustrated.
Please what should I do?
