  • I really want to run away. I hate my parents so much. They physicaly and verbally abuse me every single day and I cant take it anymore. My mother is crazy, she calls me a slut, a **********, anything she can think of thats rude. She hits me all the time, and sometimes my father as well. She slaps me calls me a "punk ass **********" "weak dumb **********" and tells me to "shut my ass up" and go clean up. She always makes me clean, she makes me clean up all her messes and keeps making me do it until its "spotless". She doesn't even let me do my school work but if I dont make all A's she beats me and calls me stupid. I dont like neither of my parents but my mom is much worse. I cant have any friends, do anything, go anywhere and it sucks. My parents argue alot, and she tries to make me take her side and if I dont she'll hit me and make me clean up more stuff. My dad gets mad too from time to time and he puts his hands on me. He says "I dont care if your a girl, your my damn child" blah blah and hits me. My mom she likes to drink and smoke, when she gets mad she blows cigarette smoke in my face. She says if I ever run away or try to tell anybody she's gonna beat my ass right back inside my house. You guys do not know how bad they treat me. I need help and Im scared to run away. DSS has already had to come to my house multiple times because my cousin used to stay with us and he had many problems. They would beat him, and mistreat him and he would fight back and run away. Then my mom would make us lie when they came over and whip us until we clean everything up. I get so mad that if I try to argue back she grabs my mouth twists it and she chokes me too. I honestly just wanna die at this point because I have nothing to live for. I hate my life. I cant do anything. I have to have boyfriends in secret and hide all my relationships. Because honestly you wouldnt want to come over to my house and meet my horrible parents. I even sit back and think about the abuse and it makes me cry. I cant even do my school work either. I'm in honors classes at school and I have to do a lot of work and my teachers have high expectations and I cant even do it because of my parents and I never have an excuse and I hate it!! I try and act like everything is normal at home but its not. I try to look my best and give all my effort but its hard when your in a situation like this.

      Hi, thank you for reaching out to us at NRS. Sorry to hear about everything you are going through at home. It sounds like you’re doing everything you can to keep your head above water despite all of the abuse and pressure at home, as well as the pressure at school. You mentioned sometimes wanting to die and having nothing to live for. If you are ever feeling like everything is just too much, and you would like to talk to someone, you can always call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-8255.
      Nobody deserves to get abused at home, but the law is especially intended to help keep youth who are still minors safe from harm. While it sounds like DSS has already been involved in the situation related to your cousin, please know that you, or anyone else, always have the right to file an abuse report. You, or anyone else, can do this by calling the National Child Abuse Hotline (800) 422-4453. Even if you feel like they’ve been involved before and haven’t done anything, making multiple reports/complaints from the same household can sometimes help build your case. If you share the information you shared us to a professional at school, in a medical setting, or police department, they are actually mandated to report it to DSS. You are also always welcome to call us, and we can either file a report on your behalf or call the hotline together (800) 786-2929. If you do decide to run away, while we can’t guarantee what will happen, sharing to authorities who try to return you home that you ran away because of abuse will often lead them to find a safe alternative place to stay instead of home.
      Here at NRS we have a database of resources, including a list of youth shelters in each area, if you would like to give us a call and explore your options together. We are open 24/7 and here to listen: (800) 786-2929. You can also try homelessshelterdirectory.org to do a search by city/state.
      Hope this helps, and best of luck!

      Hi,
      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are considering running away from home.
      Running away from home can be hard in many cases and it may be helpful to think about where you might go and how you might pay for food and other living expenses. We don’t usually tell people whether they should run away or not. If your safety is at risk you can always call 911. While we are not legal experts, generally speaking running away is not crime however you could be brought home if your parents are to file a police report and whoever you are staying with could be charged with harboring a runaway. We also have a lot of resources that may be able to help you. Your safety is definitely our priority, and we are here for you 24/7 if you need more help.
      Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our live chat platform:
      Best,
      NRS

  • So I want run away because I am constantly insulted and abused by my parents. They always talk about the bad things about me and never make me feel happy. I also am constantly bullied and my grades are slowly dropping. They don´t care about being bullied. They only care about my grades. I am suicidal and have tried to kill myself before. I want to run away because it would be better than dying. Can I get some tips or places or cities to run away too.

  • I hate my life I want to run away from home. But nowhere to go. My mom emotionally abuses me and I almost got kidnapped and she blamed it on me. Whenever I try to stand up for myself it’s disrespectful. And she always says I carried you in my belly for 8 months like I didn’t ask to be brought into this world. She says I was one of the worst births she has ever had. She uses this excuse every time. I hate my life I want to end it or just runaway where can I go.

      Hi there,
      Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS).


      We are sorry that things are not going well between you and your mom. That must be pretty hard for you. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide or running away if things don’t change. You don’t deserve to be mistreated by your mother and have such mean things said to you. You are not to blame for her behavior. You are not to blame for having an awful situation happen where you were almost abducted. That must have been terrifying for you. Thankfully you are safe. You are a very strong person. A survivor and that’s something to build on.

      Your feelings matter and so do you. It sounds like you would like to be heard and not ridiculed for it. If you think about it maybe it’s not your life you hate but the situation.
      Your life has value. You prove that every day. Good for you.

      NRS is here to listen and here to help. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of.
      You did well reaching out today. We understand how difficult it must have been for you to do so. We would like for you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. If you would like to speak more about your situation and explore some options that might help bring about change, please contact 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org (Live chat).

      Take care,

I have only one friend offline because i'm home schooled, but I'm afraid to tell him that I want to runaway. I am aware that the real world is harsh, and I will probably not survive for long by myself, and that's why I want to take a friend, but like I said, I only have one. I kind-of have a plan in my head if I do runaway, but it will probably backfire like most things I try and do. I don't think I can take this much longer, I have become careless, angry at everybody, and bulimic. I also cry myself to sleep sometimes, and self harm. Earlier today, my mom hit me for having an angry tone, but I can't help it. She also chases me around the house trying to hit me with a wooden spoon, but luckily my Grandmother's bathroom has a drawer that blocks the door, but it is on the other side of the house. I'm afraid to tell anybody because I think they will say that I shouldn't 'because she still loves me' but I honestly doubt that, and don't care. I'm starting to fail school and have no appetite most of the time, but when I do, I try to vomit my meal if I can. Please help.
        That's the same thing happening to me

          • I've run away from home and I have the same situation as you. My dad beats and rapes me all the time and I'm 13 and honestly so done. I packed up food, water, kitchen knife, money, and a tent in case I don't make it during the night. I left 2 months ago while my dad was drinking and was able to find shelter at a homeless center 6 miles from my home. Then I took the bus after staying there overnight and traveled to Tampa, Florida, (I lived in a neighborhood north) where I live with my sister who is 23. I'm doing so much better now and we are filing a child abuse and sexual abuse as well as harassment to court. We've already call the police and they've allowed me to stay since I don't have any relatives in the us. Stay strong.

          • There is a big part of me that just wants to run away from everyone. They think they know the physical pain I’m in but they don’t, the doctors don’t even know. Then they tell me I have to go to practice and I have to do the whole entire workout when my body physically will not let me. I know this probably isn’t want people say on this cause they have it a lot worst than me but I’m just tired of being here

              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.
              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.

          • I'm 14 Years old and I want to run away.
            The reason why I want to run away bc I'm afraid I'll hurt my family. I already choked my little brother. All I think about is hurting someone or hurt myself. one day I went in the woods to get things out of my head but suddenly it got dark and I just went crazy. I wanted to get hit by a car but I moved somewhere else and I scream at nothing. I need help and I'm scared.

              First of all, thanks for reaching out and sharing your situation with us. It sounds like you’re dealing with a lot of emotions and you’re doing your best to keep the people around you safe.
              You mentioned that you might hurt yourself. Your life and health is valuable and you shouldn't have to feel this way. You are not alone and we are here to support you through this difficult time. If you feel you might hurt yourself, please call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or suicidepreventionlifeline.org. If you feel you might hurt someone else, please call 911.
              Although it may be scary, many people struggle with similar repetitive thoughts and you may be able to benefit from talking to a school counselor or a mental health specialist. You can contact SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, at 1-877-726-4727 or samhsa.gov to be connected to a mental health professional. With treatment, you may learn to manage or control your thoughts and behaviors.
              If you are thinking about running away, you may want to consider how you would plan to survive, such as where you would stay, how you would eat, how you would earn money, etc. Additionally, please feel free to call us anytime at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at 1800runaway.org. We can help you make a safety plan or just listen if you need to talk. We’re here 24/7 and we are here to help.

              Best,
