  • Thinking of running away

    I'm a female and 17 I have complicated relationships with my family... I never have a say in anything. If I were to run away tomorrow morning is there somewhere for me to go? I still wanna go to high and finish but I just feel like it best to leave now and forget about my family I was planning on leaving after senior year but I've enough. What do I do? I'm scared. I just don't wanna be under this household anymore. I'm constantly fighting with everyone.
