  • Family and Relationship

    I am 15 and I really want to run away from home. Every single day my Dad raises his voice for no reason. My brother and I always get in trouble for no reason. I honestly think my brother has anger issues because he is always angry for some reason. He has punched two holes into my bedroom door twice and a year. Sometimes he takes his anger out on me and hits me. I have so much pressure on me to run away. I have a girlfriend who I have been dating for almost 8 months and I seriously love her to death and I would do anything for her. I know if I runaway it would effect her alot. I want to go to a school counselor but, I don't know what they will do and I do not want them to contact my parents. I honestly only have two friends that I hang out with. Sometimes I have thought of suicide but that would just make everything worst. I used to like going to church and listening to to the preacher but now it just sucks and I think its a waste of time. My dad forces me to go to church. My parents are divorced. My friends Mom said I can move in with them and I really want to. I really need help!

    Thank you for posting to the NRS Bulletin Board. It sounds like there’s a lot for you to deal with right now and we’re glad you were able to reach out to us. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) and we are completely confidential and anonymous.

    We are sorry to hear that your father raises his voice and forces you to go to church when it seems like a waste of time. It sounds like your brother is really struggling as well and you certainly don’t deserve to be yelled at or hit.
    What ways do you have of coping emotionally?

    Dealing with pressures such as all this can be very overwhelming and thoughts of suicide are understandable, but know that there is help for you. If you feel suicidal you can contact: National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-TALK (8255). They are available 24 hours a day to talk whenever you need.

    We understand it must be hard to think about how running away would affect your girlfriend. You sound like you are a thoughtful person. How would it feel to talk to your girlfriend about your situation?

    It is understandable that you are unsure about talking to the school counselor. Sometimes it is hard to reach out to someone, but the school counselor can be a great resource. Do you think you could approach your school counselor and address your concerns?

    It’s nice that you have a friend who is willing to let you stay there. If you move in with your friend’s mom, how do you think your parents would feel? How would they react?

    There are some difficult issues you’re dealing with and no easy answer. We wish you luck and look forward to hearing from you. Remember we are here to help you 24 hours, 7 days a week at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
