As we gain more control over our lives, we begin to be able to make the decisions that will ultimately affect our lives. However, these decisions may not always be the best decision you make. As teens, we’d like to go with our impulses. For example, while deciding whether or not to buy something not many people stop to think about if they actually need or will use it but instead they usually just go with their first impulse of how they want it. Trust me, I’ve done the same. But this type of action can’t get you through everything properly. Running away could sometimes be considered an impulsive action especially with those who haven’t done much consideration for how you will live on your own. Yes, it could seem like a good option for getting away from problems at home but there may be other ways to handle the situation. Call the National Runaway Switchboard; we’re here to help direct you to proper resources so that you can get the help and support you need. Running away isn’t a matter of getting a shirt you’ll never wear again or a chair that has nowhere to go. A lot of decisions in life aren’t. Think through potential consequences more the next time you make a decision.
