  • Step-dad problem

    Hello, I’m 12 and I’ve had enough of my step-dad, ever since I was 3-5 I was taken away from my dad who I still love very very much. I was introduced to my step-dad. The first time I met him I didn’t really like him. In 2015 I was about 6 and he would always say he would hurt my dad, at that time I didn’t like him talking about hurting my dad. As I began to get older he would get more aggressive & hateful towards me. He would always accuse me of things I didn’t do, I was very sick of it and still am. It was around 2017-2018 when he would start to hit me. Ever since 2019 he’s been constantly arguing and yelling at me for the littlest things. Me and my sister would always try to avoid him as much as possible. Now he does the same things but also compares me to other kids and body shame me when I’m way more fit than him. I’ve been contemplating on running away for over 2 years now. I live next to a highway and a big woods. When I think about it, I don’t really think I can find a place to hide for too long. If I can find a way to avoid my step-dad as much as possible it would really help. If not I need to find a way to run away.
