A month ago I ran away because I was unhappy and I wanted my dad in my life more. I was hanging out with the wrong people. When I ran away, my mother was stressed about where I was and had to constantly call the police. When I ran away last month I realized something … that my friends and the kids I hung around were the ones influencing me not to go home. I listened to those kids. Now I hang out with kids that are like me and dropped the ones who influenced me to do bad things.
