  • 17 And Running Away

    I’m 17, my mother is very religious. She often emotionality abuses me, because I don’t believe the same things she does. It got to the point where I almost got away with committing suicude . My mom and my father are devorced, my brother moved in with my dad a couple months ago. I tried talking to my dad repeatedly about moving in with him, but my brother told my mom and she got angry forcing me to stay with her. My boyfriends mom wants me to move in with her and her family. They have an extra Room in their basement and I have a job, so does he. We’d be able to support ourselves. I have budget , and a car. What are your opinions?

    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 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 if things don’t change.
    You do not deserve to be abused. It is so unfair that you are a victim of this. It is not your fault that this has happened.
    Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.

    The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    We cannot offer any advice on the situation as you know your situation best. We can however explore options with you.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
