I wanna run away but I don't know where to go and when
Hi, I wanna run away. I don't belong any where I go. I don't fit in, and people hate me and make my life a living hell. I've gone to court for PFA reasons cuz my dad would beat me, he grabbed my kneck and threw me up against a wall t where my feet weren't even on the ground any more. He's smacked me upside the head to where I see stars. He pushe my mom down the stairs once or twice. And they would hit each other. There's fighting every where I go. At school I'm called whore, slut, a bitch, and told that I should drop dead. And some of those people are my best friends and they turned and then told me they didn't mean it they only did it so the one person would still be friends with them. I have only one person in my life who cares about me and its my best guy friend. We're both 12 and in 7th grade. We want to run away and we have the same problems. He gets called ugly, fat, retarded, as he is Also told that he should just fall off the face of he planet and we don't know what to do. We both want to kill our selves but we both mentionedtonwach other of just leaving and running away together just because we are tired of all the bull crap. Can you give us somewhere to go.? Or tell us where.? Any where would work. Just please, we can't take it any more.

I want to runaway
Well i have my bags packed and everything and I want to get away somewhere where i can get a job. I am thinking about saving up my money working right now. Im 14 and im turning 15 in september. I get 9$ an hour and work like 3 days a week. Once i get enough money im thinking about just leaving. But right now im on the verge of just leaving. I am in trouble at home right now bigtime. And i dont want to go through anything with my dad. I feel like he doesnt care about me anymore. I feel like he would rather ignore me instead of talk to me nowadays. And my mom thinks im doing all these drugs that im honestly not doing. My best friend is about to be kicked out. And everything is falling apart. I just want to tough it out until i get enough money. Or just say F it and leave now before i have the chance to get in larger trouble. Thanks. By the way im in michigan.

re: i want to run away, but i dont know when or where i'll go?
Thanks for getting in contact with the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are experiencing a lot of difficulties all at once. It seems that you have been saving your money with plans of leaving. You stated that you will turn 15 in September. Do you have plans on leaving after your birthday? And if so, do you have a safe place where you will be able to stay? It sounds like you and your parents do not get along very well. You mentioned that your mother suspects that you are using drugs. Have you and your parents ever attended family counseling to help out with communication skills?
We are happy that you reached out to us. If you or your best friend is in need of somewhere to stay, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Our hotline is toll-free, anonymous, confidential, and available 24/7. We can assist you and/or your friend with making conference calls to local agencies to try and secure resources.
We hope to hear from you.

My life sucks. My mom has never cared for me. She smokes weed nd abuses me (verbally nd physiclly). She cusses me out and sys she is going to call cps on me. I h.ve never met my dad. He is in prison and doesnt even know me. My grandm is the only person i cn rely on nd she is moving awy becuse she is fed up with my mom. I cnt trust my mom so i want to run away.
