  • I am beyond scared of my mom. Her entering my room makes me jump and my heart accelerate. I have never been physically abused but a change in tone sends my heart skyrocketting. I have been told that my mom and I have similar personalities so our fights are ruthless. I always lose. Somehow everything bad that happens comes back to be my fault. I am a high acheiving student yet nothing I do satisfies my mother. When I pulled all nighters she would be mad that didn't sleep. When I started to prioritize more of my mental health she went into rages over my high A's turning to low A's. My effort has always been full in everything I do. I am terrified to do less. I can not go anywhere without texting her where I am every hour on the hour. When I go to practice the first thing she does when I get home is yell at me that I wasted time not doing my college apps and that she does so much for me and it is all going to waste. She makes me feel useless and scared daily. She wants me to take ownership of my own things, gets made when she doesn't like the essay I wrote even though I didn't ask her to read it and is absolutely horrifying when I don't update the family calendar even though I maintian a personal detailed calendar at her request. I have an eye twitch from stress and suffer from headaches as a result of my constant elevated heart rate. I am afraid to talk to her about anything because she gets mad when I hint at anything negative that could possibly be related to her. I just want to dig a hole and die. I don't know if I can make it to college. I am an impulsive person and I'm afraid I might just do something one day.

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. It sounds like your mom has unreasonable standards and trying to live up to them is exhausting and overwhelming. You shouldn't have to be so anxious when you are at home. You mentioned that sometimes you just want to die and are afraid that you might do something one day. It seems like you may be alluding to suicide. 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 Prevention Lifeline 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.

      You brought up that your mom has not been welcoming or open to conversations where you explain how her pressure is affecting you. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your mom so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

      If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

      Stay safe,

  • I am 17 and see no point to life anymore.
    Im not the best student although I try my best with everything that I do. But for my parents it's not enough. I'm constantly criticized on my grades, how I dress and my eating habits, so much to the point that I start skipping meals to lose weight even though there's not much weight to lose.
    My mother is my biggest critic, whenever she gets angry she tells me how much of a bad person I am, what a horrible human being and daughter I am, and what did she do to deserve a child like me. But she often gets mad over the smallest things.
    I make mistakes too, but as a teenager that is a given although my mother never let's it go.
    She accuses me of stealing, lying, and smoking constantly when I don't smoke at all.
    She downgrades me so much and often threatens that she will kick me out to the live on the streets if I don't do exactly what she wants.
    I try my best to please her but nothing is ever good enough.
    She's made me hate myself so much to the point where I don't even want to be here anymore. I constantly feel so depressed and like there's absolutely no point to life. I've tried talking to her many times but she never wants to hear what I have to say.
    I once told her that I was depressed and didn't want to be alive anymore and she proceeded to say I was just looking for attention and smacked me.
    I'm planning on leaving when I'm 18 but I don't know if I'll even make it till my 18th birthday.
    I just don't know what to do anymore.
    I'm so ready to die.

      • My mom makes me want to kill myself.

        Hello, I am a 15 year old, of who has suffered from depression for nearly four years. Kindergarten, first, and second we all okay. I got decent grades. But then, everything changed when she started to crack down on me. She began grounding me, even when I got a C. I pleaded to her, that I tried my best, and even gave her proof. She didn’t believe me. As the years went by, I became more and more afraid to say anything. I became a liar. I lied about my sexuality, my feelings, and how much I ‘loved her’. Now, some parents may say, oh it’s just a teenage & daughter thing. No. No it isn’t. No daughter wants to wish death upon themselves because of their mother. I know she wants the best for me, but it doesn’t show. She guilt trips me, compares me to other kids, in which when I have a comeback, I somehow feel terrible. I once confessed at the age of 14 that I didn’t want to live with her. She then began to spew this stupid story about her past life, how she was abused and treated horribly. I can’t quite depict the details of it. A year back, my sister had a child, of which my mom now hardly sees for how ********ty she’s been to my brother. Soon he left as well. And she can’t help to think why they left. She just hates being wrong. Loathes the fact that she sometimes never gets her way. At times, yes, she does go out of her way to do things, but it rare. She’s made me sob in front of my friend. She’s barged into my room and screamed at me. Sometimes I’d be so afraid, I’d hyperventilate. She gave me a phone, to which she thinks I’m addicted. No. I’m not. I hide behind a screen because I’m terrified of talking with her. It’s like my safety blanket... Whenever she comes home, my content mood drops. I feel as if I can’t be myself. That I have to slap on this happy facade. We’ve had our ups and downs. She claims she will get better, but she never does. To this day, I still want to live with my dad. I don’t care if he lives in an RV. Hell, even a box. I just can’t stand her, it kills me on the inside.

          Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

          It sounds like you are in a tough situation and may be looking for some options to help cope with everything.
          We understand how difficult it must have been to speak about the things that have been going on between you and your mom also how it has made you feel.
          You are very brave for doing so. Good for you. It is not your fault that she treats you the way she does. You don’t deserve that. It sounds like you have become so frustrated with her behavior that you have had thoughts of suicide.
          NRS would like you to know we are here to support you at this difficult time.
          You might feel like you are alone at this time but you are not. Sometimes it might help to reach out to family or friends, even a teacher or counselor at school.

      • My mom straight up kicked me because she said that She told me to unload the dishwasher which I already did and when I confronted her about she says she didn't kick me because there was no bruise. I have threatened to take my life or runaway multiple times and she doesn't care. She said that she would call my job and make me quit which doesn't even make since because somehow Im not responsible even though I've got good grades, Im a good athlete and I do most of the chores in the house. My little sister is a ********** who gets everything she wants. She's 14 and has a phone and I'm sixteen when I ask my mom why she favors my little sister she says she doesn't even though my little sister never does her chores, is failing her classes, constantly talks back to mom. I hate them both so much. And my mom kicking me hasnt been the first time she's hit me. Once in the car we were listening to music that none of us liked and my sister turned it to something worse and then I turned it to an actual good station my mom punched me in the arm and it left pretty dark bruise. Im scared that if I ever punch back I wont be able to stop until they're lifeless I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE.

      • My mom makes me want to kill myself, I’m 23 years old and struggling to get out of her house. I have a boyfriend who stays with me on occasion at my mother’s house and tries to help me but to no avail.

        My mom is just the worst, if things are not done in the manner she likes or when she wants, she goes into these ballistic rages where she screams so loud that my neighbors could hear her perfectly. Saying I’m a good for nothing loser, I’m pathetic, my boyfriend is going to leave me and that he deserves better, I’m useless, I’m a piece of ******** and a mistake. If I try to walk away or ignore her, she gets into my face and starts yelling at me even more.

        She demands that the house be clean EVERYDAY as in conducting a major cleaning everyday before I go to work; dishes, laundry, sweeping, mopping, dusting, scrubbing and the whole works. BEFORE I GO TO WORK. Which is only a couple of hours after I wake up, normally which is 9:00 am.

        I don’t know what to do anymore, she berates on a daily basis and I have no wish to live anymore if this continues. My boyfriend tries to help me by being supportive, help me clean or try to appease her. But my patience in this environment is running thin, I can’t take this anymore and I don’t think I should have to endure this. Parents are supposed to be nurturing, supportive or even kind but it seems like I was given a raw deal in life.

        I’m just starting to feel more and more like a mistake everyday, like life would be better if I wasn’t around anymore.
