  • I want to start all over

    I am 14 years old and female. I want to run away because all these things I got myself into... its not worth anymore. I started having sex, doing drugs, and doing bad things. Just for love. but my parents don't reach what I require for love and it kind of hurts.. I know this is cliché and dumb. But the only house I can run to is my boyfriend, which is more than 12 hours from here. He lives 1 hour away by car. All I ever have thought about was running away. I have wrote down the directions. I have packed a bag with a safety knife, clothes, and my medication. I don't want to stay with my family anymore. I know it'll hurt them but I really want to go away.. Help me what do I do. All I ask is for a better stability in the house because all my parents say is "I'm stupid" "You look like a clown with makeup" "You're just an attention seeker" I believe that I need a better family for myself. Not trying to tell my parents that they're terrible parents. I just want to start over.. I messed up and can't recover with them.

    Thank you for contacting us. From what you shared, you are considering running away because you have done some things that you're not proud of. Your parents are saying some things that are hurtful to you and you want to leave home. You mentioned that you have packed a bag and decided that you would go to your boyfriends house, but you also don't want to hurt your parents and tell them that they aren't good parents. That sounds like you are in a tough situation. In most cases, parents would probably be upset if their child left home. You want to start over, but if you run away could that make your situation worse? It could be helpful to try some counseling or find someone who can talk to you and your parents at the same time. Kind of a mediation session so that you can explain how you are feeling and what you would like to see happen in the future with them. We do have a phone conference call service that can help with this. Please call us if you would like to set that up.
