  • Leaving home

    I want to leave and runaway never look back my mother puts me down with negative things and Its eating me up inside I need help no one can help me cause she puts on a front like everything's okay. It's not. I go to school everyday with a smile and laughing covering up my emotions cause no one cares for me. I have no one to turn to and the only option is to run away and ever come back.

    Re: Leaving home

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you’ve been having a hard time at home lately with your mom and we are sorry to hear about all of this. It sounds like you’re in a really tough spot. We’re here to support you in any way that we can.

    So it sounds like you are really set on leaving home because of how negative home is with your mom. You shared that you have been covering things up which has got to make things even harder. Do you have anyone at school, like a counselor or just in general that you trust enough to talk about everything that’s been going on? Sometimes it can be helpful to talk through these things with someone. We’re also here 24/7 if you prefer to talk anonymously.

    We’re not here to tell you what to do, because you know you’re situation better than we do. We just want to make sure that you are safe in whatever decision you make. With that being said, there are some helpful things to think about while making your decision:

    What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
    What would make me stay at home?
    How will I survive?
    Is running away safe?
    Who can I count on to help me?
    Am I being realistic?
    Have I given this enough thought?
    What are my other options?
    If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
    When I return home, what will happen?

    You can call us at any time. We’re here 24/7 and here to help you out. Please do not hesitate to reach out.

    Good luck and stay safe,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
