I never ran away as a kid, I had a nice life and I wouldn't have been able to take care of myself yet anyway. When I was older I did get kicked out, more specifically I was in Canada and when I wanted to come back to Switzerland my mom said you can't live with me anymore. But I came back anyway because I knew I had to, my life was here any everything. My problems would have only been more difficult to solve in Canada. It was the right decision. I slept underneath her balcony for like 4 nights and played beach volleyball at my favorite spot during the day XD. Even when you're fucking homeless you can't have a bad time playing beach volleyball in the sun that's just how good this sport is. Nobody really goes to the back of the house much and you couldn't see me from the top but sooner or later I got found and sent to a social worker who was also my former neighbor. I got a temporary room then another one I spent some time at hostels too but I got a room in the end then a job and now things are going well.
Thanks for sharing your story 😊❣️❤️
I sneaked away from home sometimes. By my window outside there was long pole. I go out and slide down the pole. Then climb and jump off the fence. I ran away out the van. I still remember this. I was 10-12. Mom and Grandma were in it. I was sad what my mom said. I opened the door and ran. I walked the long road. I thought I was walking back home. No, I was going deeper to another town. A police officer saw me and picked me up. He put me in a jail cell. The officer was nice. He just taught me to be better. That's way I've never done the BAD things that could put you to prison. Never shot anyone, hit a person, or etc.
That's crazy 😱
I tried once when I was a kid, around 8 or so. I came from an abusive family, and eventually I just couldn’t take it anymore. I packed a bag and snuck out the front door at night while my parents were watching television. Even after what they did though, I still cared about them. I still love them. I wanted them to know that. So I wrote them a note. My parents found the note sooner than I was expecting. My dad found me before I made it too far, chased me down the street, and dragged me kicking and screaming back to the house. Then they apologized and were smothered me for about an hour before things went back to the way they were before. Even though I don’t like that I had to deal with them for another ten years, I’m glad I didn’t manage it successfully. At least I’m alive. Many runaways don’t get to say that. My eight year old self would not have lasted long on the streets.
Sorry to hear. 😢
Thanks. But I’m doing okay. :)
Yes when I was 6 years old, my oldest brother kept reminding me of things I needed or forgot by the time he was done, I couldn't ride my bike too much stuff, I got two houses down and turned around threw everything to the ground shouted I Hate this Family and ran inside made a sandwich came out grabbed my stuff and said I'm not talking to Anyone every time I came to get another item I'd have something to say. Then when I was finished I said nice big brothers tganks for heloing pick up all my stuff you made me bring it all out here you could've at least helped me get it all back in... Then I said to my oldest bro what time are we going to the Matinee (afternoon movies)?
When I was 4 I ranaway from Pre-K and walked straight home 3 miles. My Mom returned home after taking me got the call I was missing came back. She came home hree hours later to find me laying on the couch with our family dog. My Mom asked me how I got out of the school and home I told her I crawled through the Teachers legs and walked home. She kept hugging and kissing me... I said Mom they said we would take naps I'm not a baby I don't nap!!! After that I spent nap time with Father Michaels playing in his office.
@Secret6620, thank you for the MHO.
That's good 😊❣️❤️
Yes I did because my dad cross the limit when he kicked my boyfriend out of the house and he was forbidden to see me. So what I did was I ran away from home and I was gone for a couple of days and then I came home. He and I had a huge argument but I had nothing to be sorry about because my dad was the one that pushed the women and he needs to realize that I was growing up and he needs to stop butting into my business all the time. My dad didn't care that he didn't get it apology all he cared was about my safety and I shouldn't have ran away from home like that and he said that he had nothing to be sorry about either. We butt heads and we had a huge heated argument that cost less than not talk to each other. I mean I was pissed off what else was I supposed to do? I never apologize for running away so why should I? I'm not going to apologize if I don't mean it. This was like 2 years ago when I was 16. #sorrynotsorry
Sometimes a teen girl wants to run away with a middle aged gentleman. I discourage this sort of thing but it happens...mix957gr.com/.../
I discourage as well 😢😱
lol No.As a student, running away from free food, entertainment, and lodging? Plus, there was way too much academic burden to even consider that as an option.Besides, under what grounds would I do that? Treatment was good. Respect your elders & fellow family-members and they'll respect you back. Grievances were never that bad in number and/or intensity.
I poured bubbles into my moms wine when I was 6. I got scared she would get mad so I somehow got into my neighbors house and hid in their closet for 5 hours. Mom set up a search party for me and when my neighbors brought me home she was still mad. Lose lose situation and yeah that actually fucking happened lmao
Omfg I'm sorry but that's hilarious 😆❣️❤️
Yes, many times but i could not leave for good fearing i couldn't leave without my parents blessings. I wanted to run away for many reasons, mostly how my mom treated me all wrong. I hated pretending to be someone i was not so she and my sister could be happy. I did it for so long i lost who i was, and i just wanted to find myself.
No... because my parents always told my sibs and I that we came into this world naked... and if we wanted to run away... then we could... but naked...😑
Ok, I am told I ran away when I was two years old. My mom eventually found me wandering down and across the street. I was a curious child set out for exploration. 😂
No, I wish I could sometimes. step dad was a prick. if I got home after 10 PM. He would lock door. I'd sleep in car. yea 10 pm. start of the night. I never did get the at 10.. u kidding me.
Nah was funny actually. got him posted lol
I don’t think I really ran away... my mom used to kick me out all the time, almost every night. My mom wouldn’t let me run away, she’d go to desperate measures to find me so she wouldn’t lose control of me.So no, i don’t think I ever ran away.
I did, so I could go on drug binges without being judged or sent into rehab.And then I overdosed and went back home to be judged, and then to rehab.
When I was about 7 I gathered up a few things I thought I might need and solemnly announced to my mom that I was leaving. I went outside in the yard and was back for lunch. 🙋♂️🚶♂️
Ahahahaha I love it. 😆❣️❤️
67 runaway reports in a span of 4 months. Was successful the 68th time. And the reason was because my parents were very very abusive.
Sorry to hear 😭
Yeah, i have schizophrenia and sometimes everything got a bit much and i went and sat alone far away from anyone
Oh no 😱😱😱
No all the times I've wanted to I was under 16 and knew I'd be sent back home, and even now if I ever thought of it I know that I'm safer under them then on my own lol
Didn't want to live there anymore? duh? What a dumb question. Are you serious? lolDon't ask people like this such questions in person, the crazier ones will target you.
Yup bye bye 👋😆🙄
Surprisingly, no but have thought of it many times and came close to packing up my things
Me too girl ❣️❤️❣️
yup. because i was a dumb ass emotional kid taking a stand for myself in the only way i knew how.
by running away (in case nobody got that) lmao
Lol thanks for responding ❣️❤️❣️
I did it once but I can't remember why. I walked to the end of the street, realized I missed my parents and went back.
Nah fear of my mom finding me and killing me or my mom not even trying to find me kept me home
Same here. 😆
Once when I was seventeen to marry my girlfriend. I got as far as Pennsylvania before realizing this was a really bad idea and turning around.
At least you came to your senses 😊❣️❤️
I did. Thanks 😊.
Never did since I have nowhere to go. Nothing was that extreme to sleep on the street
Yes, well a time ago my uncle and I got into a fight and for my bean pole body went through a window on the second floor and through the ice on a pool. Think the rest is pretty self explanatory.
So to me I think that's a valid reason
Once, I was 4 and only got down the elevator, my mother was in the hospital because my brother was born and I wanted to go there too so I packed my bags and left
One time when i was little i packed a bag acting likei was running away from home but i never went anywhere.
:-D :-P :-) ;)
I left home when I was 16 and was a drifter till 25 just working on farms and ranches where ever I went
That's crazy 🤯😱
I didn't run away though, my parents knew. There was just no stopping me when I put my mind to something.
Yeah, me and my friend, when I was 6. We got about 2 blocks before my big sister caught up to us and dragged us home.
I never ran away from home, but I did leave home when I was 16.
My daughter ran away she said I was unfair asking her to help around the house she came back 2 days later crying and asking me for her life back.
Poor girl 🤦
Lol why poor? She has a good life
I did when I was 15. I'm pretty lost and wanted to ran away from everything.
I thought of it when I was younger but I can’t seem to remember why.
Thanks for replying though 🌸💜🌸
Yeah a few times when I was real young... i packed up some toys and hit the road... till it got dark
Yes. parent putting way to many rules on me. I felt like I was a prisoner.
More than once, once for country once for personal freedom and once from an abuser
not really it was for an afternoon too cool off i always planned on going back more of a walk it off kind of thing
No, Mom thought we did but we just went on an adventure to a friends house.
LOL buddy and I got our asses beat by our parents!
Yes because I hated everything around me at that time
Hopefully things are better now 😊😊😊
Cause I had an abusive father. I now live in my own house.
That's good to be in your own space 🌸💜🌸
