im 16 years old and im thinking about running away from home because i feel that there is nothing keeping me here. My family is almost broken,my dad has an affair which my mom is aware of yet decides to remain silent,my brother and i dont talk to each other since i was like 5. I have tried talking to my mom about how awful i feel here but she doesn't understand. Also,my dad is an abusive alcholic. I dont't know how to deal with all of this. we always get into fights. I cant stay here for the next 2 years of my life. They make me want to die and running away seems ideal. I do realise that this hides many dangers but im okay with it. I have money and a place to live once im out of here but im afraid because if i do leave then my parents will probably report my missing to the police and what will be next? i plan on moving put of the country and go somewhere that minors can leave on their own without parental permission ( if that works). I dont know what else i can do since communication doesnt work with them. Are there any laws that protect me once im out?
