    It's so so dirty and the people are so illiterate. I hate touching anything and everything here. I hate my family, and don't feel any connection to them. I want to runaway from this country. I am 18, in college. My passport has expired and not been renewed. I don't know how much money i have in my bank account. I have never had a job. But i really really really want to runaway. I wish to run away to South Korea. I can read Korean and understand basic sentences. I have been there on vacation once, and i loved it. Please help me.
    I am 18, in college. I hate my family, and feel no connection to them. I hate living in this dirty country. Everyone and everything here is so so filthy. I hate touching anything here. I am unable to survive like this. I can't do it anymore. I hate it when anything or anyone touches me. I want to runaway from this country. My passport has expired as I am not a minor anymore, and has not been renewed. I have no idea how much money I have in my bank account, and it is a joint account with my parent. I have never had a job. I wish to runaway to South Korea. I have been there last year and loved it. I can read Korean and speak, understand basic sentences. Please help me.

        Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. NRS is a safe and confidential space for young people to receive support and resources. We are a non-directive and non-judgmental space for you talk through your situation, explore your options, and receive resources. We are here 24/7 to listen and help.

        It sounds like you are in a tough spot at home and your mom's boyfriend has been making it even more stressful. You deserve to be treated with respect and it is not okay for other household members to talk down to you. You mentioned you are 18 which means you are most likely a legal adult and have the legal freedom to choose where you live. Having a solid plan in place and thinking about what is realistic and do-able for you can help you put together a plan to leave home safely.

        Our email and Bulletin services are different in that we can only respond twice. If you would like to talk more in detail about your situation and receive immediate help, we encourage you to reach out to us through our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at 1800runaway.org (click on the CHAT button on our website homepage).

        We look forward to hearing from you soon so that we can help,
        NRS

      I’m 16 and want to run away, I live with my mom and sister. My moms has kicked me out many times through the past few years, and constantly and consistently puts her boyfriends needs before mine and my sisters. Ive been emotionally abused by her for years, I come home from school or work and she just cusses me out, calls me every name you could think of. Then the next day she’s normal again and we don’t discuss it or nothing. I’ve had enough man. She’ll break down my bedroom door, hammer off my lock, I don’t feel safe at all. She threatens to call the police on me for the smallest things, and for running away. Legally in Ontario I can runaway at 16, but I’m a bit nervous to do so. I work full time right now, and plan to go back in September once schools open. What do I do? Should I run away or live hating everyday for 2 years?

      Thanks

        Hi there,

        Thank you for taking the time to contact us here at NRS. We appreciate you sharing a bit about your situation and we want you to know it was very brave to reach out to for help. It sounds like your mom has been making home dangerous for you and you are thinking about leaving. It is not okay for your mom to kick you out or for her to make you feel unsafe at home. You deserve to feel safe where you are living and to be treated with respect.

        The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. If you are located in Ontario, Canada you can contact a youth crisis line based in Canada, https://kidshelpphone.ca/ , for support during this difficult time and help exploring your possible options. We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your area.

        If you are currently living in the United State, you can contact us directly by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or through live chat services at 1800runaway.org. We want to talk more in detail about your situation with you so that we can better discover your possible options and offer any needed resources( ex. youth shelter).

        Stay safe and good luck,
        NRS
