So pit, have any of you crazy people ever contemplated running away from where you live at any point in life? Even if you were to die after a while because of lack of necessities?
post away.

My parents took away my Xbox away so I braved the Canadian wilderness instead of living in that hellhole. I faked my death and moved to Arizona.

Yup. When I was like 13, I had an incredibly in-depth plan (well, being 13) for running away from home. I think everyone's thought about it, but I almost came close to doing it.

Didn't run away, got kicked out back in September. Moved in with a friend, had a job, had food and drugs. Life was SO good I essentially stopped going to school, then I grew up and stopped being a bitch about curfews, moved back, and now I'm college.

But that month will be remembered.
Poop.


Yes, poop.

While not technically running away, I stayed with friends for several months because my fathers a really bad person and I can't live my mother.

But now I live with my grandfather and everythings great, I never have to really see my dad again.

I dunno, can you consider house-jumping back and forth between friends/people you know running away? I didn't contact my father for almost 6 months. Still didn't change his ways ven though it should be obvious he lost his son..
#8
nah free place to stay and free food is fine enough for me to have to listen to rules

doesnt mean i dont dream everyday of having a good enought job to move out and pay for schoolin

Yeah, that still fits the definition of running away I guess.

I camped out in my backyard for like an hour when I was a kid because my mom/dad wouldn't buy me Spyro.

I ran away for a week. It sucked, probably because I went to San Jose.

I had to move back with my parents recently. Every day I tell my mother that I'm going to run away into the woods forever. She tells me, "good" and asks why the hell I haven't gotten out of her house yet.

There isn't even really a forest around here

Did it, lived on the streets of london for a good 6 months feeling like a rich homeless person. Moved in with a friend, cleaned myself up and never looked back.

If you're seriously considering it, all i'm saying is don't bother doing it. There are a lot more harsher truths than people care to know about.

Back when I was something like 15 I ran away from home. Long story, but basically my mom just died then and everything just kind of fell apart. My dad really didn't have his **** together; he was too busy screwing around with his new girlfriend. Thinking back, I don't regret what I did, but it still wasn't enough. It really hurt my dad that I would actually rather put myself through that than live in that house.

I lived in a homeless shelter for a few epic days, then moved to a group home for kids my age; I liked the food in the homeless shelter quite a bit actually, and the people there were rather... eye-opening I'll say. Didn't like the group home as much; they had enough little rules that I found myself breaking them by complete accident a few times. A total of a week went by until I went back home, and it was good for awhile.

Then about a year later I took off again, for about a year this time, for pretty much the same reasons as last time. Except this time my father wanted both my brother and I to actually move in with his girlfriend. I promised myself that I would never let that happen to me long ago, so I left. I lived at a friend's house with his insane mother for about 6 months, then into a foster home for the other 6. I have to say, going through that kind of stuff seriously changes a person.

About half a year after moving back after the foster home, into his girlfriend's house it was once again good for awhile. At this point they were broken up- good riddance- but still actually trying to live with each other. A few months of that, I moved out again because they would just flip out over dumb things all the time and I haven't lived with my dad since- and that move was at the end of July 2009, I believe.

I am happy to say I have been in contact and in good relations with my dad for about a year and a half now, and we both understand what was going on at the time, long story short.

If you're thinking of running away, you have to ask yourself if it is really worth it. This is something you NEED to have a plan for, or you'll end up on the street and that is NOT a good idea by any stretch. If you are under 18 and have no job, you still need to make sure you have all your necessities in check or you're not going to last long at all. If you are just angry at your "authority figure" you need to figure out if this is something you can fix, or if you are better off living in... some crazy situations you usually only see on TV. Believe me, you'll meet all kinds of hardcore MF'ers, some of which are actually certifiably crazy, or you'll find yourself in drastic situations where you NEED to act fast and make the right decision or everything will just turn into a living hell and there is nothing you can do about it. It's's a rather intense way to live if you are REALLY serious about it. It's also a great way to cut back on your life expectancy and possibly even traumatize you for A LONG ASS TIME, and that is the truth. If your current situation honestly sounds like those last two sentences already, then, and only then, would I recommend running away.

Brutal times man, brutal times. In my case the problem was more related to the death of a loved one initially, then later on it was more about a rebound relationship full of emotional abuse and neglect. Basically I couldn't deal with it all, and neither could my dad, so I left. Sound appealing?

When I was 8 I imagined filling a big plastic toybox with food from the cupboard (thinking it would last me forever), running away to the massive foresty backyard of one of the nearby rich person's houses, chopping down trees and building a house there

When I was 7 my dad locked me out of the house by accident so I decided to run away and live in the park that night. I picked the park because it was my favorite place near our house and people fed the ducks there so I thought I could pretend to be a duck and get food too. And I knew that people lived in the park

I only stayed there for 2 hours though. It was a lot scarier at night and they turned all the lights off on weekdays to save energy and there were bats everywhere.

When I got home my dad didn't even know I was gone

No, not at all. My parents have been caring and understanding albeit they did set a few insanely unfair rules, but that's life.

I'm moving on Thursday though, and will be spending a good portion of the following nine months away from home, and then moving back for the summer break. After that, I'm moving abroad to study computer engineering in England somewhere for a good three or four years.

When I was around 12 my middleschool head threatened to get me and a friend suspended from school for sticking messages on people's backs. We planned to run away if we got suspended. But we didn't, and the principal just laughed it off and said "children will be children" so we didn't. But both of us had seriously packed bags and left out our bicycles so we could get out in the middle of the night

I actually filled a bandana with fish hooks, string, crackers, and some cheese, tied the bandana at the end of a stick and ran away when I was about eight years old. I must've looked like Spanky from Our Gang heading out with my hobo pole resting lightly on my shoulder.

I didn't catch any fish, ate the crackers and cheese, cried, and went back home. What a smug little turd I was back then. *ahem*

Yep. Donated all of my money to OXFAM, went to Alaska and set up camp in an abandoned bus. Changed my name to "supertramp". It was an amazing experience.

This. I think it was even a video game I wanted. I went inside after my mom called me in for dinner.

She thought I was playing hide & seek with my brothers

That was when I was like 7. Never thought about it again. Life is good.

I did when I was about 9. I don't remember why I attempted to run away, but my mom thought I wasn't being serious (of course I was, goddammit). Not ten minutes later she found me (by foot, for some reason) and brought me back home. A few hundred yards away from where I was at that moment.

I stopped being a little bitch after that.

I haven't done it before, but if I were to do it now, I wouldn't make it because of necessities, but as a kid, you could obviously pull it off, because eventually the police will find you and bring you back home.

But yeah, I have contemplated it numerous times without acting on it, when under particularly larger amounts of stress.
