  • Running away from a toxic household

    I always wanted to run away but I been grounded in reality by where to go how much money I have left police of tracking me. I am 28 now with a somewhat stable part time and somehow I trigger my mom to exploded when I told her I did not wanted to wake up at five to go for work for 2 days. I know she has my best interest but because of generation differences she think I am spoil plus with her low option of me. Should I just run away now that I have some money to get rid of my toxic household or should I try and make drastic change. I am also very suicidal

    Hi, thank you for reaching out. It sounds like a part of you has always wanted to run away and now you are wanting to get out of your toxic household, which is totally understandable. The helpful part is that you are 28, so legally you can leave whenever you would like and go anywhere you want. It is important to make sure you would have a place to stay either with friends or family, maybe to start off before getting your own place. It sounds like you have a stable part time job which is helpful, but you would likely need to have more of a full time job to fully be able to support yourself. You deserve to live in a place that is not toxic and where you feel comfortable. It also sounds like you are feeling very suicidal and that a therapist could be an important resource for you. We care about you and you deserve to get the help that you need. There is also another hotline, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline, can call or text 988 to talk to someone. We wish you the best of luck with getting the help you need and ultimately getting to a place you feel more comfortable.
    Be safe,
