  • I have three years.

    I’m 15, and i’m a trans guy with unsupportive parents. I want to run away and start a new life where i can be myself when I’m 18. But I’m financially unstable, i don’t have anything except my phone. I want my parents to know I’m leaving but i don’t want them to know where I’m leaving to. How can i make money for a house in three years? How can i run away? Will i be a disappointment if i leave everything just like that? Will my relatives think bad of me? Will i finally be that ungrateful disappointment my parents hate so much?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing your situation with National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We know that it takes a lot of courage to share your truth and you are so brave to do so with us. It seems like there are a lot of challenges going on at home right now with you and your family and it sounds like you have started thinking about the future and what that could look like. It’s great that you are at least planning ahead to see if this is going to be a right choice for you. A lot of your questions that you have asked are very personal and we in no way can answer them for you. The thoughts of how your relationship will be with your parents, being yourself, and making money are all things that come down to you. These are the things that you are going to have to decide whether or not you think they are realistic and if you need to alter your plan.

    Since it's a public forum, we can't give you a resource here, but if you connect with us via phone or online chat, we can take a look in our database and hopefully be able to locate a youth agency that can provide you local support. Please reach out via phone or even our online chat for more help.

    We hope to hear from you so that we can help you further.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
