  • I want to run away from home but I have nowhere to go

    I want to run away from my home kinda. I am being mentally abused by my dad. And I feel like I cant tell my dad anything. And I also have been and I am still seeing my parents fighting weekly about patenting. I tried to harm myself at 10 because I wanted to end it all and I was too scared to tell my dad that I was getting severely bullied. I just wish I could run away but I have no friends and I would have no where to go.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for contacting us, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and share your story. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension with your parents fighting all the time. No one deserves to be mentally abused, your dad should not be treating you that way. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

    You mentioned that you have previously had thoughts of suicide and have self-harmed in the past. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Hotline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

    No one deserves to be bullied. You should be treated with respect everywhere you go and you should feel comfortable at school. If you feel comfortable you can always disclose what’s going on with a trusted teacher, school counselor, or other personnel; they may be able to help. You can also check out for some “Bullying Survival Tips”.
