  • im 17 and need to leave asap

    i have thought about running away many times. my family is very controlling, i feel like an outcast, that i never do anything right and everyone hates me. no one tries to see my point of view, im always wrong. i was living at my grandparents for the past week but my parents picked me up from work cause they found out ive been smoking weed again. so now i am stuck at home, with no phone and no in my family is talking to me. i feel like im being held hostage. i just want to leave but i have no family or friends house to go to. ive been thinking bout moving into one of those houses where they rent out rooms . where should i go?
