  • LGBT+ runaway

    Hi, I am new to the forums. And I feel I am a bad son, why? well, I feel like I need to run away. Because I feel I am not supported because I am a trans boy, and when my mom Misgenders me I either ignore it or it annoyed me. But annoyed is rare, it chips at my not-alive thoughts. (Also called Suicide) I don't like when she Misgenders me on purpose, but I still like her. She wants to be a good mum and understand, and be near me. Or at least interact with, expect. The "mum I am trans. Yay," part, I used to want to and feel I need to. Leave, and when I attempted to I tried to think of a plan but did not think of a big enough plan, that's when I felt independent. Selfish me, (I don't know if I mean that) my plan, for now, is to just go somewhere called the "Pope Francis Center" It is downtown. Not that far a walk, but that's if I can ask if I can be on a computer for my online school. Yes, things happen sometimes while in school. I just need to pray nothing happens when I cross the streets. And follow my steps, with things like streets plus landmarks. And map directions. Then, when that closes. Go to a library, again downtown. Then go to a park, and sneak in. I am not sure if it has a fence. That's for when it turns dark, and sleep. This park is different. It has trails and trees. And reminds me of a forest, a forest-like park is called. "Carpender Preserve Park." I was going to get a part-time job if someone finally accepts me. I am in a perfect, home. No one is even physically abusing me, be grateful. I am, I am, and nobody is trying to mentally. I also wanted a haircut, I was going to go in 2 years in spring on a Saturday. What child hopes to protect their parent from danger!? Bye-bye, got to go sleep or do work.
