You are a legal adult and cannot rely on your parents for support. Perhaps if you get a job, make plans for the future and show your parents you are on the right path they will allow you to stay. Offer to pay them rent from your job. If you want to have the life you desire, it will not be handed to you.

If you are over 18, your parents have no legal responsibility to allow you to live in their house. So, you may not have any great options available outside of trying to work things out with your parents. This would ultimately be governed by state law, so it may good to discuss your options with a local attorney.
