“Well d’you know what? Sometimes stuff at home is kind of complicated, the feeling isn’t good, then you’re not going to want to be there. But that’s not to say that you can’t… That you don’t have to be there.

You know there might be a safe way to get a break and go somewhere else, there may be another family member. Sometimes it’s just about letting people know where you are and that you are safe, so that they don’t worry. Sometimes you can plan it so that you get time away.

If it was getting that bad, it might be the way to move forward so you know, everyone can have a break from each other as well and get to a new normal.”
