    I feel stuck. Ive ran with a sibling before but it seems we always end right back at the beggining. I did things on my phone that i shouldnt have done, every teenager does it. I got in trouble with a certain group of people i called my "friends" my heart is jus broken tbh. Its always about the negative things ive done, no one ever realizes how hard i try to be a good person. I got my phone taken for doing something a second time. And idk when ill get it back but ik itll be forever. How should i contact someone without my phone? I just wanna be free, and far. Bc obv being here is killin me.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are dealing with a lot right now and we want you to know you are not alone.
    We are sorry to hear your family thinks that of you, sending explicit pictures does not make you any less of a person. Your family may be worried about your safety when you are sending pictures of yourself to people. Once you send pictures of yourself it is possible the other party could send them to their friends or post them on the web.
    We are not legal experts but if you do leave home it is possible for your legal guardian to file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. You may want to consider talking to a school counselor about your situation. They would be able to provide support and resources.
    Best of luck,

    I’m 16 , And I want to run-away because, my family thinks I’m a Hoe and Send nudes to People, which is true. I want a family who respect , And tell me to sit and talk about the Situation, my family is not like that. They make fun of me . And I be thinking I wish they wasn’t here or I wish I wasn’t here. I wanna Runaway because I also can’t have a boy bestfriend or a boyfriend or to get pregnant. I CANT DO ANYTHING . THIS FAMILY IS SICK.

I feel very unsafe and unease around her. I really wanna take my car so that i could runaway from home.i failed behind the wheel, all she does scolding me for not being studious. Still hurts me. I feel useless and unworthy living here. Sometimes i really wanna hurt myself to get rid of pain and frustration. I cant stand with them. Rn i waiting to get the job since im jobless during 12th grade-1st yr of college. And my mother been **********in about it. She always assuming me that im lazy and i dont understand her, epescially something very specific. The truth are that i diagnosed with ADHD when i was little and Depression when i was a pre teen. She thinks imma gonna be outgrown havin ADHD ... but no.

    Hey there,

    Since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. We are here to listen and help however we can.

    Best,

    Hi, I just turned 18 a couple of weeks and I can’t take living in my house anymore. My parents have always been overprotective but it seems like when I turned eighteen, they latched on tighter and I don’t have any space for myself. I graduated high school last month and turned 18, to celebrate those two milestones, I wanted to take a trip with my friends. It turned into a huge argument and that’s when they started controlling me even more it seems. I got home around 10 the other night and my dad blew up on me. He said I can’t be coming in and out of the house as I please, and he keeps threatening to kick me out. I’ve always thought of myself as a good kid, I don’t drink or smoke, I’m never home that late but they don’t seem to care. I’m never given a reason and I’m terrified of disobeying them. I cry almost every night, I can’t take it anymore. If I had the money I would’ve already moved out but I don’t even have credit, I wouldn’t know where to go. I don’t know what to do anymore, the thought of staying home for the rest of the year makes me sad and angry. Please help me.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
    It's totally understandable that you are wanting more out of life, and living in a small town can be difficult. It may be hard to express those feelings to your parents. Therapy and family therapy may be good options to help you talk through these feelings and give you a productive environment to express them to your family.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). If you would like to look into further support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.

    i just turned 13 and i understand that there’s not much i can do about this situation, but i’m really bored and sick and tired of staying home in my small town. i feel that everything is the same and i’m longing for more. i wanna go somewhere bigger and explore or do something. i’m trying to live everyday as if it were my last but its kinda hard when i’ve already done everything around me. i want to go somewhere even if it’s just for a few weeks. i feel that i am depressed and my parents keep asking what’s wrong but i struggle to put all this into words. i just want to get away and let everything go, forget all my worries and find myself again. -reagan
