  • I need a break

    I need a break from my parents and my life. i hav thought about running away but where will i go? i dont think that i will stay away for that long i just need a break. i am that kid who never gets in trouble and gets good grades. my mom is so wound up and stressed and high maintenence. my dad always gets upset with me. i am also quite lonely. i am an only child and i hav no one to talk to. no one seems to care that much about me even though they say so. i guess i hav crossed sad and am now depressed. i think that if i could just meet some1 then we could go together. i dnt know waht i could do on my own. im just lost. and really sad. i cry every night. o and im 12.

    Re: I need a break

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing and sharing with us a bit about what is going on with you right now. You mentioned that you have been feeling very lonely and that you need a break from your life and family. How long have you been feeling this way? Have you spoken with anyone about this? Does anyone in your family know how sad you have been?
    Have you thought about where you would go if you decided to leave? Do you have a safe place you could stay? What do you think your parents would do if you left? Do you think they would get the police involved or make a runaway report?

    It’s understandable that you just want to take a break sometimes, and it can sometimes be helpful to remove yourself from a situation that you are feeling frustrated or bad about. Do you think that you would be happier if you left home? How do you think it would change the way that you feel?

    One thing you mentioned is that you don’t feel like you have anyone to talk to. Do you think it would help if you have supports and people you could talk with about your situation? Have you ever thought about speaking with a counselor? Do you have a school counselor you could speak with? If you ever wanted to look into some individual or family counseling we did provide some numbers in your area that provide both of those services.
