  • I want to run away but don't know where to go PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!

    So I am 13 and live in Canada and I really want to run away, I have ADHD anxiety and depression. I hate it here I dint fit in with my family or any one, my mom makes me go to this stupid religious thing and I hate it I feel trapped scared and alone. I have talked to kids help phone and go to a therapist but nothing is helping I just need to get away, I have gone over what I need and what I will do if I get caught running is my mane point right now. I have completed suicide but I have gone past that, I just really don't know where to go if I do run. Im 13 and afraid I don't know where to go is there any where kids can go, any ideas I would live some help

          a soldiers silent cry for help.

          My field name is rodeo. I'm 17 I got to a j.r.o.t.c. I'm planning on running away and with my qualifications i exceed past standard survival when it comes down to doing what I gotta do. My only problem is if I do run. The legal consequences, food won't be a problem for the first 2 weeks because I have enough canteens and m.r.e's to fill me up. I past ranger school which makes me a "raider" so running from police won't be much of a challenge. My main fear is not knowing where to go and how to provide for myself. I already have my high school diploma but the military won't accept me until I'm 18 because my mom refuses to sign the contract.

          I'm tired of the abuse. My home isn't home. The verbal abuse, The physical, the hiding the pain behind a smile. The past a.c.s case breathing down my neck. I have no clue what the hell to do anymore I have avoided what most would call "family ". I have had family mediations to explain the troubles and nothing seemed to change. I refuse to take anti depressants that I dont need which is why there's this 2 year pile up on mixed emotions. My mom divorced my only means of tranquility and the only person I can talk too. I live in New York, in the vicinity of the 40th precinct. is rapid response would stop me and knowing my parents police would get called just before I leave the 8th mile radius. I have a friend of mine who's a pilot as well. But he's in training and with the Muslim stereo types goinf around due too I.s.I.s I don't think he'd trust me in his single engine plane with my gear. I've exhuasted all means of coping with the family violence. I wanna run away and my only problem is I don't know where. I don't ask for help at all but metaphorically speaking I have slammed my head against a wall way too many times. I need help or advice or even just a safe haven. A shelter I can make sustainable.

          Por favor, ayuadame...

            RE: A soliders cry for help

            Hi There,

            Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We’re glad you reached out to us. We are here to provide you support and assist you during this time.

            It sounds like you’ve been having a difficult time with your mom and that you’ve tried to find some solutions to the problems. You do not deserve to be abused and to feel this way. One option that you may consider is abuse reporting, if you are comfortable with doing so. One great resource available to you is Child Help USA. Child help USA can put you in connection with your local Child Protective Services, as well as explain the process or reporting and assist you in that process. If you are not comfortable with doing that then you can also give us a call here at NRS. We can assist you filing a report and support you while you make the report, or we can even make the report for you. We understand that this is a very difficult time for you and we want to help you in the best way possible.

            It sounds like you’ve done some research about running away, which is a great place to start. We are not legal experts here, but we can provide you with some general information. In most states, at your age you can still be considered a minor. If you are your mother has a legal right to file a runaway report and there is a chance that you can be returned back home. Since you are thinking about running away, here are a few questions to consider:

            • Am I going to be gone awhile or coming back in a few days?
            • What would I do for money? Shelter? Food? Transportation?
            • Who can I depend on if I leave home?
            • Do I have a safe, solid plan?

            It seems like you have plans for your future in the military. You are so strong for reaching out to us and for seeking help with your current situation. It also sounds like your mom divorced your father whom you feel you can talk to and rely on. It must be hard to have someone you can confide on taken away. Have you considered reaching out to him? We have a really great service here at NRS called conference call. Conference call service is a three-way phone call that would provide a safe space for you to talk with him. One of our operators would be on the line to help mediate so that the conversation stays kind and productive.

            You also mentioned finding shelters or a safe haven that you can go to. We really want to support you and help you during this time. We encourage you to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY so we can work with you to find resources that will work best for you and your situation. By reaching out to us, we can see if we can connect you to lots of different resources and services including shelters, counselors, and lots more.

            Thank you again for reaching out to us here. It takes a lot to ask for help and you are trying to figure out your options that are available to us, which is really great. We really want to help you and support you during this time. We are here 24/7 and someone is always available. We can be reached at 1-800- RUNAWAY (786-2929). We look forward to hearing from you!

            Best,

            NRS

                Hi there,

                Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at NRS. It sounds like a really tough situation to be going through. Nobody deserves to feel worthless or unwanted in their own home. It shows a lot that you reached out to us through all of this, that is a big first step, it’s something worth being proud of. We are here for you through this.

                Being in a situation like this can make it very difficult to be home. If running away is something you are considering, we are more than happy to have you call us, we have many resources in our database ready and available to you. We are also more than happy to talk through what is going on and talk through some possible options for your situation.

                What you are describing with your mother also sounds like it could be emotional and verbal abuse. If this is something you would like to talk about, we are here for you. You could also try reaching out to Child Help, it is a National Child Abuse Hotline. They can be reached at 1(800)422-4453.

                We hope this has a helped a little and again, we are here for you 24/7 at our toll free hotline at 1(800)786-2929 or at our online live chat.

                Best of luck,
                NRS

              Hi, im Ivan and im 16. I am going thru a really hard time at home. My parents are divorced and I dont feel any love from them. Im living with my mom and she is constantly yelling at me and keeps grounding me for something I did not do. I want to run away. But if I do decide to run away, I have nowhere to go. I live in Croatia. Please understand me. I really am suffering. I cant live like that. Im in depression and suicidal thoughts arent strange. Please help me. Thank you for understanding. I appreciate all the help.

                Hi,
                Thank you for your message. It sounds like things are really difficult right now and it must be very lonely to not feel any love from your parents. It sounds like you’re feeling a lot of stress, which is totally understandable. Since we are based in the United States, we unfortunately are not aware of your local resources. We were able to find Croatia’s suicide hotline: 014833888. Please know that you are not alone in this. If you ever feel like you might be in danger of hurting yourself, we encourage you to reach out to your local suicide hotline or possibly the police. It could also be a good idea to talk with your mom about how you’ve been feeling; it’s possible she doesn’t realize how depressed you feel. Perhaps you might be able to talk together about what would make you feel most supported (including family therapy). You absolutely deserve love, kindness, and support.
                You also mention running away. Though we are not familiar with your local resources, it is prudent to consider the following:
                -where you’ll go (friends, family, acquaintances, local runaway shelters)
                -how you’ll get there (maybe a friend can give you a ride, public transportation, walking, biking, etc)
                -where you’ll get food
                -how you’ll get income
                We wish you the best of luck. You are not alone and there is love for you in this world. We hope you find it—you deserve that.
                --NRS

                Hi there,
                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. 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); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

                Hey there,

                Thank you for reaching out to us! We know it can be difficult to reach out to others and it’s very courageous of you to reach out for help. It seems like you may be going through a difficult time right now at home and that your family does not seem to be making you feel any better. You do not deserve to be treated in a way that is making you feel like this.

                Sometimes running away has its consequences. You would not get in trouble but it may have an impact on those surrounding you who do love and care for you. If you do, however, ever feel like you are unsafe, you can contact the National Safe Place by sending a text at 44357 with the message SAFE and [your location] and they will reply with the nearest safe place you can contact.

                You are a very brave individual for seeking help and if you want to talk further in depth about what is going on, do not hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 or send us a chat a www.1800runaway.org, we are 24/7 and completely confidential. We are here for you and here to support you.

                Hello Lila,

                Thank you for reaching out to us. We are so sorry that the situation with your family has been so tough. It is not ok for anyone to be hurtful or to make you feel that they don't love you. It sounds like you are contemplating leaving home, but you are concerned about where you might be able to go. We cannot tell you what to do, but we will do our best to share info that might be able to help.

                Please know that there are organizations that can support you if you are contemplating suicide. Organizations like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, available by phone at 1.800.273.TALK(8255), or by visiting their website at http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/# . Where you can go really depends on your age and what you have available near you. We are not legal experts, but from what we understand, if you are a minor in your state, you need consent of your parent or legal guardian to live anywhere outside of your guardian's home. If you are able to get consent, one option might be to see if there is a relative that would be willing to take you in, or a family friend that would be open to you staying with them. If you don't know of anyone that could or would take you in, another option is to see if there are shelters or, depending on your age, transitional housing options in your area. Please feel free to let us know if you need help. We are here for you.

                Whatever you decide, know that we will support you. Although we cannot tell you what to do, we will do our best to help you explore your options and stay as safe as possible. You can reach us 24/7 by phone at 1.800.RUNAWAY (786.2929) or via chat by visiting www.1800runaway.org and clicking on the 'chat' button. We are here to listen, here to help. Stay safe!
