  • Runaway

    I'm 21 with a 1 year old daughter. I really want to run away with my daughter but I don't know where to go. I am going through too much with my family. I feel alone, I feel unloved, I feel like no one cares. they just do what they do because they know I'm part of the family but I really just want to be alone with my daughter and not have to worry about anyone else and not have them have to worry about me. I want to run away as soon as possible but the only thing that's keeping me still is my child and of course money. I cry every night. It seems like I'm the one always causing problems but I kno imy not. They just like to point the finger at me because u guess they feel I'm an easy target and that I don't matter anyway. Im tired of being mistreated.
