  • i need advice

    i really need advice and help. my family is watever but recently i can't stand them. they nag at me all the time. everyday they nag at me. its like whenever they get home they look forward to just nag at me. im the youngest at 13 turning 14 at the the end of the month. they're all older than me by at least 12 years. so no one is in my age range and that affects me a lot. we have a lot of differences and i can't really connect to anyone at my house. but back to the story. they nag at me everyday and whenever we get into arguments trying to defend my case they just don't listen to me because they're older than me and think im wrong all the time. like if i do something wrong, they nag at me like its the end of the world. i just hate it. i think they like seeing me unhappy because they're unhappy themselves. im usually a cool, happy funny guy but recently i've been unhappy. its like everything i do is wrong. and i get put on blast cuz of it. i don't do drugs and all that. im very religious also btw. im just really sick and tired of it. i won't runaway now, but if they keep acting like this and im being treated like this i might later in the future. JUST NEED ADVICE AND HELP

    Re: i need advice

    Thanks so much for writing in and sharing your story with us. It sounds like you’re dealing with a very frustrating situation at home with your family. You mentioned that you are constantly feeling nagged and yelled at by the rest of your family members. You said that you are the youngest and that everyone is much older, and that causes some problems. It sounds like it is hard having them so much older than you and that nobody really understands where you are coming from. Have you been able to talk to anyone about how you have been feeling lately; any friends, other family members, or even a counselor? Do you think it would help to sit down and talk with anyone about what’s going on? How many people do you actually live with? Is there anyone in your family that you feel particularly close with? If so, do you think you could speak with that person about how you are feeling at home? It’s not good that you are feeling so unhappy at home and no one should be making you feel that way. You said that you wouldn’t runaway at this point but that if it keeps happening you may consider that possibility. What do you think you would do if you actually had runaway? Where would you go and how would you survive on a daily basis?

    Just so you know, if you ever need someone to talk to, you can always give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

Even if you just need to vent about the situation, we are here to listen. We are here 24 hours a day so you would be able to call whenever works for you. Best of luck and take care.

      thanks for replying to my message. i think my family (btw there's 6 of us) has calmed a little down and haven't nagged at me today. i hope it stays that way. we can be really close and at times, i feel like i just don't wanna be part of it anymore. but thanks for listening. i think i just needed someone really to talk to... if i still feel uncomfortable i'll talk to you guys. thanks
