  • I need help and thinking about running away from my parents

    I really need your help. I been going through a lot for the past few weeks. All of my problems are coming from my parents. They are kinda pressuring me and don't really care about me. I'm asian and I act like a American. I want my parents to be good parents but somehow they do it their own way. I want to enjoy my summer this year but I have stress because I have to go to summer school. It not fun being at summer school. I went to many different summer schools over the past 6 years. I felt upset but not only just that. They started making fun of me and giving me hurtful reasons about me. They are sometimes harsh to me about my grades. I got at least 3.86 and 4.00 GPA. When they look at my grades they don't accept the 3.86 GPA. I felt disappointed and I tried hard this year. I cried every night and now I don't want to eat anything. They even make plans I don't agree on. They also never support me or don't like my friends. My friends are well behave and they still don't like them. I tried cutting my neck by scissors but my parents saw and got angry at me. I was getting hit and locked up since age 3-5. My parents left me alone being a not well behave kid. I am really scared to run away or commit sucide. please help

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out. We’re so glad you’ve reached out to us for help. It sounds like you really have a lot going on right now with school and your family. It seems like you’re under a lot of pressure from your parents to do well in school which must be really difficult to deal with. However, it seems like you’re really brave for dealing with this tough situation and still doing so well. It sounds like you’re trying to do your best, and it’s completely normal to feel sad and scared right now. Let's see how we can help you out.

    It seems like the situation has left you feeling pretty overwhelmed, which is completely normal. From what you’ve told me, it sounds like you’ve been considering some different options to try to deal with the situation at home and we are really glad you reached out to us for help. You mentioned that you’ve been feeling suicidal and that you’ve tried to hurt yourself before. It may be a good idea to reach out to someone who can provide you with some guidance and support during this difficult time. A family member or friend may be a great source of support, or even a teacher who may be available at your summer school. A possible option may be to sit down and make a list or even think over potential people in your life who you may be able to reach out to, to talk about what is going on. We completely understand that this may be challenging to do, and may seem scary, but it may be really helpful to share some of what’s going on with someone you trust and feel comfortable talking to. Feeling suicidal can be pretty serious and it seems like you're looking for some support with that. Making a list of people might be a good way to get the support that you deserve.

    Another great option may be to reach out to someone who talks to individuals struggling with similar situations to your own every day, and may be able to provide you with some great support and advice twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. The National Suicide Hotline can be a great place to call for this, as they are available any time of day, whenever you need to talk. You can reach them at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). This could be a great resource for you any time you need someone to talk to about difficult feelings that come up or anytime you have any thoughts of hurting yourself. It seems like you're comfortable reaching out - you reached out to us! - so reaching out to other organizations could be helpful too.
