  • I just want to run away.

    I'm 14, I have problems with my family at home I feel like I'm a burden to them. My mom and I fight every single day, and my older step-brother is just a pain. My older sister always complains about every little thing about me, so does my mom. I feel like no one here actually cares about me and they just let me stay because I'm part of their family. I really want to run away, but I don't know what to do, or where to go..

    RE: I just want to run away


    Thank you for reaching out to us during this difficult time. It sounds like things at home are pretty tough. Have you ever run away before? If not, do you have a safe place to go? It sounds like fighting with your mom and siblings makes you feel unwanted and uncared for. You do have the right to feel safe and wanted in your own home. Have you thought about trying family counseling? Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we cannot tell you what you should or should not do. We would like to talk to you about your options and help you come up with a solid plan for what to do before leaving.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
