Would you be here if you had one?

My life isn't going as planned right now and I feel like everything is completely falling apart for me. Parents are always arguing, we have to move out, we have no money for a house at the moment, I'm gaining what I feel is stress weight and my mind as been all over the place. I've been considering going to counseling to see if that makes me feel better or at least makes me feel like myself but I don't want people to think I'm mentally unstable or something. Honestly, the only place I feel like myself and safe is when I'm with my boyfriend, he literally feels like home to me. He makes everything so perfect again and I just wanna feel like that at all times since everything else is so unstable. When we're together he talks about our future and all that and ion so comfortable that I think that having a baby would make everything okay because it would be my own and no one can take it away just like you can easily take away a home, money, being able to say you're comfortable. I know I'm too young to do that and I have a life plan but I really feel like it's what I want. Don't get me wrong sometimes I'm just like "no I don't need a baby I'm young what the fuck was I thinking?". I don't know what the point of this was but can someone please leave some advice for me? Please?

Bishop, Wizard of Evil,

you can have a baby as long as your inside of a marriage

Taylor, Merchant of Evil,

Try to make your education your source of stability. It will stand by you much more securely than starting a family with little to no money.

Having a baby and expecting it to make any part of your current life better is not a particularly great idea. I know you said you know that. I hope you go with your instincts. The baby won't erase your current problems, it'll create a whole new set of them on top of the ones you already have. Get through these trials and tribulations that everyone faces as a young adult on the verge of adulthood and then once you're legal age, decide whether or not you still want a baby.

Thank you so much for the advice, it was much needed!
