    re: Sad

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out. It takes courage and self-respect to tell your story the way you did and to ask for help. We are here to listen and provide support to the best of our ability. We care about your safety and we hope you realize how awesome it is that you are asking for this help.

    Asking for help isn't necessarily about being weak, it can mean you're smart and brave and not afraid to ask for help. Getting better for many people can mean being around, in person, people who care about your happiness. Your father figures unfortunately don't seem to be considering your happiness. You don’t deserve to be treated like that.

    As far as what you can do in the mean time, here are a few possible options that might be helpful in dealing with your situation.

    • Talking in person to an adult you know cares about you such as a teacher, friend's parent, etc. Many people find it helpful to reach out to an adult they trust and who can advocate for them if necessary.
    • Counseling. We recognize counseling isn't for everyone; however, if this is the route you'd like to go, we can try our hardest to locate a counseling resource in your area.
    • Other support hotlines. We're here to listen, but there are also people who are especially skilled in talking to young people like you who are thinking about suicide. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's phone number is 1-800-273-TALK and their website is:
    http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
    • A runaway or homeless youth shelter. This is not an option for all youth and it may require the shelter getting consent from your parents/guardians, but in cases of abuse some shelters are able to reach out to Child Protective Services (CPS) first. If you are interested in knowing if there are any local shelters, we can search if we have a city/state.

    These are just some of the resources and options that are possibly open to you. Please call us at the Safeline and we can brainstorm more options for you. We'd like to thank you again for reaching out to us here at the Safeline and hope things get better!

    Sincerely,

    The National Runaway Safeline

    Hi

    Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear about the way you have been treated. It sounds horrible to receive rejection from someone that you love and care about. It sounds like the mistreatment at home is pushing you away and causing you to want to leave. We are disheartened to hear that your mother stands by without doing anything. It seems that you do not receive the support that you probably should at home. You mentioned that a good friend is willing to provide you with a safe place. It sounds like you have concerns about your friend's mother getting into trouble for taking you in as well as you attending school. Generally speaking, it isn't illegal to runaway in most states however your parent will still have the right to file you as a runaway. If you are filed as a runaway, there is a possibility that your parent can try to press charges against any individual(s) who harbor or abide a runaway. Since laws vary by state, it may be helpful to contact your local police nonemergency department to see if they can provide additional information. Also in some states, minors can legally move out at the age of 17. You also verify this by contacting your local police dept because this rule varies by states and sometimes by counties within states.

    We hope the information provided helps. Remember we are available 24/7 and can be toll-free reached by dialing 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We are confidential, anonymous, and non-direct. We can also be reached via live chat between 4:30pm and 11:30pm CST.

    Best Wishes
    ~NRS

    My stepdad hates me and I can't stay here any longer.

    I've always loved my stepdad and have tried to make him happy, but even when I simply hug or kiss him on the cheek, he pushes me away and tells me to leave him alone. I try so hard to make him like me but he can't even tolerate me. He's always telling me to leave, saying "I don't care what you do, you're not my problem" and "If you want to leave, just leave. Less trouble and money for me." He's kicked me out multiple times and my mom just stands there and doesn't do anything, his word is always final. Yet he loves my little brother to death, is always telling him how much he loves him and how he doesn't want his son to end up like me. Last night he called me a piece of ******** and told me "******** you" because he thought I was talking about him to one of my friends. He doesn't let me leave the house and doesn't trust me at all. I'm sick of being treated like this and I'm so ready to get out of here. I have somewhere I can go, to a good friend's house in nearby city, but I don't want her mom to get arrested for taking me in and I don't know what to do about school. I'm turning 17 in 5 months.
