  • 15 and want to run away

    So, I hate the way my life is going right now. Honestly I've always gated it but I never thought about changing anything because I felt that there was nothing I could do. I recently started a new school year as a sophomore and I realized, things just aren't the same. My parents favor my sisters over me and its sickening. I can't stand it. They get phones and I get a 5$ iPod bought at a garage sale. Yet never get threatened with a belt for skipping a single day of showering, and I get that plus everything taken away from me. Honestly I feel like the only reason they try to stand me is because they think I'm a good singer and drawer... They force me into things I don't want to do and when I ask them why they don't consider my feelings they just ignore me. It's not just life at home by its also school. Recently we got a lot of new students and I really don't mind that. It's just that the buses get really crowded and people get really aggressive to get into a seat and I can't stand it. Every single day I'm sandwiched between 2 people. I true telling my parents to tell the school about it, but they never listen to me. I've already talked to my older sister, and I've told her that I might run away soon. She tells me that she would keep the secret and not tell them where I went. If I was ever to run away Id put a piece of lapsed under my bed tellin me where I went... And honestly I have no where to go. All I know is that I don't want to stay anymore. These people have no remorse for me and never give thought to my wants, they never consider what I want and I feel unwanted everywhere. I was gonna make my decision within this week. I might just leave tomorrow.
