    Goodbye Sanctuary

    I suppose it is about time. At my age my sister was pregnant, engaged and living in a flat with her fiance, (a cruel man but her fiance nontheless). But now I am leaving all that has ever given me comfort, and also all that has caused me much pain. It is time for me to wear down...

    I Need To Leave.

    I need to leave my home, and move very far away where no one can touch me. It may sound immature to run away from your problems, but I cannot deal with it anymore. The man I love loves someone else, all of my friends are gone, my family drives me insane. I'm going insane here...
