  • My mom makes me want to leave

    I know I'm overreacting, and I should just deal with it like everyone else does. But I can't help but feel like it's best if I leave. I don't want to live with my mom anymore if she always hurts me. The only problem with ruining away is I'm 13, and can't afford anything besides the minimum amount of food and water for a couple weeks. I definitely cant afford to keep up my phone plan. My phone is one of the only things keeping me from leaving this earth. I just can't deal with this anymore, but I don't have much options...

    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We would like to be of assistance to you if we can. It is times like these that would be nice to be able to vent and have a listening ear. It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care.

    Though we can understand being frustrated by a situation. It sounds like you are trying to slow your thoughts down and think before making any decisions. Good for you. One thing we can say is that running away probably will cause changes as to how you will survive. Some things to consider are where you will stay? How will you eat? How do you keep yourself safe? Basically the question you might ask of yourself is: Will running away make my situation better or worse?
    Something to consider during a difficult time is making a check list to see if you have done all that you can to resolve whatever conflict you might be having about something or with someone. Next is to examine how you have attempted to do this. Consider what the best form of communication is to get across your feelings about the situation.
    We hope that makes sense.

    We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
