  • I want to run away from one.

    First of all, I want to say that my English isn't really good.

    I'm a 16 years old boy and everyday for over 2 years I think to run away. One of the biggest reason is that I can't rest properly, maybe this didn't looks like a real problem but everyday, every hour from the morning until 4-5 AM I need to listen my stupid brother who scream and yell all day on Skype, this actually affects me a lot, it makes me angry and is really hard to control this anger. I tried to tell him to stop doing this, then he stop only for 5 minutes and start again and that's happening for years aleardy, I just can't take it anymore. Also my parents have fights over any stupid ******** and I literally don't have a room for myself where to have some rest moments.
    Another reason would be that I have a part-time job( nothing big, just to make some money for myself when I go out ) and yeah I try to make some money but everytime it happens or my mom to loan from me with various reasons without giving the money back or my stupid brother spending my money like are his money. Like today, he just bought some $200 headphones with the reason "Well, money were on my PayPal account" I was really pissed. I don't have a problem to help my family but when they just start to use my money without even asking and don't even thinking that I could use or invest those money really gets on my nerves.
    Even if I can't stay here anymore also I don't know where to go, I can stay to friends but that only for some weeks and also I don't make a lot of money from my job to afford a rent.
    I tried in the last months to make some projects, to invest money but it's pretty hard to do that when everyone from your family doesn't support you.

    Thanks for reading and sorry for any grammatical errors.

    Thank you so much for contacting us with your questions and concerns. It sounds like you are going through a tough time at home right now and thinking about leaving because of it. It seems like you are tired of your family always yelling and also taking advantage of you by taking the money you work for. It's understandable that is a frustrating situation for you and it sounds like you are fed up with their behavior. Does your family know how you feel or have you spoken with anyone else about your situation?

    It's good that you are trying to figure out how you can be safe and where you would stay if you did leave. The tricky thing is at 16 you are still considered a minor so in most states your parents would have the right to make a report. Usually if that happened and the police were to find you they would pick you up and bring you home. Do you think your parents would make a report if you left? In the end we can't make this decision for you but we would be happy to talk through safe options and resources with you. You can always call us at our 24 hour hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or reach out through our online chat available from 4:30p to 11:30p CST. It also sounds like English may not be your first language so we just wanted to let you know that we have the ability to get interpreters if needed. All of our services are confidential and anonymous and there is someone available to provide support. Take care and feel free to reach us anytime.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
