I do understand how difficult this is. You want the independence you see other American women your age having at college. But you come from a traditional Hispanic family that is more protective. You want to be able to make your own decisions but it’s hard to cut loose from the financial and emotional support that your family offers. It can look like there is a big cost to whatever you do.
I’m impressed that you are willing to work hard and perhaps move out. That shows courage and strength. I hope it doesn’t have to come to a blowup with your family for you to be with your boyfriend and to pursue your own dreams.
I’m very glad you found a therapist to help you. That’s the person you should be talking to about these issues. She can learn your whole story, where I only have your short letter. She can provide you with ongoing advice and support. I’m sure the two of you can figure out how you can gain more independence and still be connected to the people you love. You may even want to invite them to come to a session or two to help you in the project.
I wish you well.
