  • I'm almost 16 and I've been thinking of running away since I was around 8

    I have no idea why the idea of running away seems so appealing to me, or why it always has. I don't necessarily have family problems and the only other person who knows about this is my best friend. Most of the time I feel as if I won't actually do it, but there are times where I feel like I could run away and never look back. I don't have any plans on where to go or what I'd do for money, I'm not sure I'd care either. These thoughts always scare me and I don't know why I get them or how to make them go away.
