I need help with how to tell my controlling step mum that im moving out that will give her smallest reason to explode. she has always exploded and deminedd me when it has come to my choice in life decisions, even when they are good for me. but i have no idea how to approach it as im ready to leave as it is toxic for me here but she is a difficult person. any ideas?

kind of confused by your first sentence, and your second sentence…
but the gist is that she’s going to flip out, right? provided you’re not underage then you don’t really have to tell her much. organise to move out, pack and tell her you’re leaving at the latest stage possible, then go.

I’m not really sure what you need help with. The way I picture this conversation going is this:
You: “Step Mom, I’m moving out”
Her: “Rant, Rant, Puts You Down, Name Call, Rant…”
You: “Ok, Goodbye”.
You then proceed to get in your car, drive to your new home and you don’t have to listen to her ever again.

@nurseSGP: i agree with pp. may i ask how old you are?
the only way your step-mom can control your every move is if you let her. (or through force which is illegal).

@nurseSGP: when you do end up telling her that you’re leaving, or she notices or however it happens, you could have a few girlfriends around. she might control her behaviour a little if other people are there.
