  • i wanna leave and never come back. EVER.

    WHY CANT I CHANGE? I try and try but I don't know why am I such a weak person. my boyfriend has given me a lot of signals that he's cheating, but I always go back with him. I guess because I really never felt love in my house that I seek for it with someone that doesn't deserve my time and energy. 4 more months and we are 1 year together and am I 16 years old. I just feel so alone. because of my behavior, as a punishment, my parents took away my phone so I cant contact anyone. I could only get help when I write to here using the computer at school. because I know at my house my mom, my dad, and all of my siblings don't trust me at all. all my friends in school turn out to be fake and they stopped talking to me. as you may see I feel so alone. like I cant trust anybody. at school, I cant express myself because I don't have friends that are that close. at home, nobody wants to hear me out, to them I am just a troubled teen that needs to shut up. in my relationship, this guy could literally be cheating on me, and am I too blinded with this stupid idea that he loves me so much and would never do anything to hurt me. I just need to feel some ones love that I always make up excuses for him. and I feel if I leave him, I have absolutely no one. and that's it, how much pain can one girl take. all I wanted is to be happy with my boy friend, but because I was with him I have lost my friends and family. now that he's doing this to me, no one wants to listen, and I am forever alone. I want to leave asap but I still want to stay in school. but if I stay in school, my parents would know where I am at, and they would just make me come home because I am only 16. I don't know what to do. I HAVE TO LEAVE.

    re: i wanna leave and never come back. EVER.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out today and posting your story. It’s clear that you’re going through so much and working through so many things. It’s not easy to feel alone – you know that. It’s got to be so frustrating and exhausting to be in a situation that makes you feel stuck. It does actually sound like you are changing and working on figuring things out. Sometimes things don’t change as fast as we want them too, but you are changing and you are thinking through things. That’s an important step in making life changes. It’s incredibly admirable too, to live in a way that is reflective (even though it can definitely be exhausting!). It’s smart of you to reach out for some guidance, so let’s see how we can help you out.

    If you feel like you have to leave, it can be important to put together a plan so that you are safe when you leave, and that you understand the consequences. In some places there are shelters where people under 18 can go to get a break from things. It is not a long term option, but it is a place where you can talk with someone and then at some time return back home. You can see if there is a place nearby to you at www.nationalsafeplace.org. If you click on your state in the upper right corner, you can see if there is anything around. They also offer transportation, so take a look.

    Thinking through who your supports are can be a good next step too. Even if you haven’t reached out to this person yet, can you think of someone who you might be able to share your story with? Building up as much support around you as possible can be helpful when you are feeling so overwhelmed. You can check out www.loveisrespect.org to see what a healthy relationship looks like and a way to make one happen for yourself.

    We hope that this is a helpful start for you. If you’d like to talk more about anything please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). You can also chat with us through our website (www.1800runaway.org) from 4.30pm-11.30pm central time. You can also check out www.teenlineonline.org for another place to vent and talk with someone.

    We look forward to your call or chat.

    Best of luck to you,

    NRS

        RE: Feeling Alone.

        Hey there,

        Thanks for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

        We’re really sorry to hear about all these things that are happening at home. Also, we’re so sorry to hear about your mother. That must have been a tremendous loss. These problems you’re having with your sister certainly don’t make it any easier. It must have taken a lot of courage to come to us today and we’re very glad you did.

        It sounds like you and your sister are each having a lot of difficulties getting along. It is understandable since it sounds like she’s had a hard time over the years and that you’ve both recently lost your mother. Also, living in the same household with someone over such an extended period can start to strain any relationship, no matter how strong the bond. If you’d like to talk about some strategies for talking with your sister, please feel free to give us a call here at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). We could even try a conference call with your sister, since she is your legal guardian, if you think you’d like help in communicating to her how you’re feeling. You’d need to call in to make that happen, so the choice is completely yours.

        It sounds like your sister has also been through some hard times, so it might be good to keep in mind that you both might be hurting. You mentioned that her boyfriend beat her when she was pregnant. That must have been awful. Remember, if this type of thing continues to happen you have the right to call the police. Anytime you or your sister’s safety is threatened please do not hesitate to get the help you deserve.

        We really hope this information helps you. We encourage you to call or try our Live Chat if you’d like to get into more detail or just talk about these things happening in your life. We wish you the best in whatever you decide to do.

        Stay Strong,
        NRS

          dont want to live with anyone

          Hi, I don’t want to leave with any one. I am married girl or woman I don’t who I am. Literally I am fed up with all. I only love my father but I can’t stay with him buzz I am married and in our culture girl cannot stay at home after their marriage. And I don’t want to leave at my in laws house. Because no one can understand my feeling. I can’t live here like my childhood. I just hate to stay here. And I want to go somewhere without anyone.

            I dont wanna live with anyone

            Hi,
            Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

            It sounds like you are going through a tough time and you are maybe looking to find somewhere you can have some time alone. We understand if you might be feeling overwhelmed emotionally. If you are having issues with your marriage then a marriage counselor might be something to consider.
            NRS provides services to runaway/homeless youth (under the age of 12 up to the age of 21). We also offer services to parents of runaway or at risk youth. Are you an adult over the age of 21? If so you might try United Way services by dialing 3-1-1 or 2-1-1 depending on your city and state. Does that make sense?

            We hope that you are able to figure things out and to also feel better.

            Take Care,
            NRS

                I don't even want to live anymore! My brother is abusive, my dad is a creep, my mom does care about me, I can't see any of my old family member, I have lost so m any people it isn't funny! I'm afraid to get close to people because I've lost so many of them. I have, well now had, a best friend that I've known since kindergarten and me and him have been through a lot together and then right after he got a new girlfriend who is like an enemy, he stopped taking to me and I've been crying my eyes out since!! I don't want to loose him he is all I have left!

                  Hi there,

                  Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We're sorry to hear about all that you have been facing at home and with your friend, and want you to know that you deserve to feel happy in your home and your life is valuable. You mentioned not wanting to live anymore and that you have dealt with a lot of loss. and we want you to know there are people that want to listen and help. If you ever need to talk to someone, don't hesitate to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

                  We are not legal experts, but we can tell you that if you are a minor and you leave home and your parents file a runaway report, you could be returned home. There could also be legal consequences for whomever you stay with for what is called harboring a runaway. If you want a liner to help you walk through other options like us mediating a conference call between you and your parents, thinking through possible adults that you could turn to or could advocate for you, or things like emancipation and legal aid numbers, don't hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

                  Stay safe,

And I’m just getting to the point where I just want to leave this place and never come back and see how much people supposedly misses me. And my parents my be send me off to boarding school for 16 months what do I do??????????

                      Hi there,

                      Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We're sorry to hear about all that has been going on and want you to know that you deserve to feel safe and happy in your home. You mentioned experiencing abuse which may be reportable against your brother. Please keep in mind you by no means deserve any type of abuse, emotional or otherwise. That said, we can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at (1-800-422-4453) or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.

                      Do you have anyone in your life, like a trusted adult or family member or school counselor, that you can talk to about the abuse and get help? They could help you through this process so you don't have to feel alone. If not, we are here 24/7 at 1-800-786-2929 to help you talk through your options. Don't hesitate to give us a call whenever you need us.

                      Best,

                      NRS
