    Goodbye Sanctuary

    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...
