  • 19 and nowhere to go and basically being tracked

    I’m a 19 year old who is living in a fairly toxic environment with my family. I want to run away but I don’t know if I will be successful. For starters I have nowhere to go and no money to stay anywhere, and all my friends live too far away from me to stay with them. Second, my phone is paid by my mother and my car is co-signed under her name as well as mine, so if I did run away she could report both as stolen. How do I successfully avoid these problems and go somewhere safe?
