Hi, name is Sean. Title is accurate. Basically when I was a kid
I lived with a bunch of drug addicts that didn't seem to give a shit about their children. Rather than pay bills, etc they had us in povery. I got tired of that bullshit so I ran away.
Here's what I did
First off I had to get money. I don't give a fuck what you say, runaways need funds. A lot. What I did was, well, I stole it from my parents and some other really nasty stupid people. I stole credit cards, wrote down numbers/pins, and sold a bunch of shit. So I started with 400$ and I'd take a little at a time until I had enough.
Then I took a bus (bought ticket online) greyhound doesn't bother to out who you are or what you carry as long as it is under th weight limit. I left SC and went to Kansas city and when I got off the bus, I went and found an abandoned house to squat in. So I ate, and slept, and I eventually spent like a year doing that. I turned 17 and went and signed up for a GED. got it. I went to churches and got free food. Met some good people. Lied said I was homeless. Tricked alot of people into helping me. I had help getting a job. I worked. Had help getting a place to stay. I eventually moved into a boarding house, tht was good because they was strangers that didn't give a shit who I was. Long story short by lying and not trusting anyone other than dumb Christian types I successfully ran away and now I am doing just fine. I am not saying that you should consider this a guide, but this is what I did. I'm a guy btw.
So basically you guys would have better chances if you planned it out and it would really help if you knew how to disappear. You can't talk to no adult. You can't tell anyone anything. If you run away with someone else it'll be twice as hard. You gotta be able to deal with being alone and you gotta know where to go to get resources. 100$ will last maybe three days. A thousand maybe a week. That's if you got it and you eat three times a day. One thing I wanna say is when you out and gone and need to charge your phone or whatever go to public library. You can hang out all day ,leave go back to your shelter or whatever eat go to sleep no one will give a shit you'll be fine. Again I'm not an expert but I planned out my running away over three days, and that was eleven years ago people. Hope someone get
some kind of help from this because running away is a lot of bullshit
