  • I can't live at home anymore

    I'm very mentally unbalanced and living with religious parents, we argue constantly, they oppress me all the time, accuse me of being a liar for no discernible reason, don't give a single ******** about what I want to do with my life, don't give me a say in anything, and tell me that they're right simply because they're older, and just generally make me feel utterly miserable. I feel like I'm slowly losing my mind and I want to leave. Before anyone asks, yes, I've thought carefully about this, for over a year actually, I want out.

    Thank you for reaching out and for posting about your situation. It sounds like you are in an incredibly difficult situation at home. So sorry that your parents oppress you, accuse you of lying, don’t give you a voice and make you feel miserable. No one deserve to be treated or made to feel that way. We at NRS don’t tell people what to do – we don’t tell people whether they should stay or whether they should leave. We trust that you know your situation the best, and it sounds like you have given a lot of careful thought about what would be best for you. What is important to us is that you are safe and off the streets. If you would like to discuss options or help establish a plan - where you would go, for how long, what you would bring, how to stay safe - we would be happy to continue the conversation (would need to know things such as city/state, age, gender, etc. in order to look up resources and also to determine if looking up resources is what would be helpful, or if you already have a place to go). Please let us know how we can be of help. We are here to listen and here to help.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
