    I Want To Let Myself Out.

    I have been thinking really hard about my life and how boring it's gotten. I've been married for only five years and the fire is slowly burning out between my husband and I. He's a sweet man but is always busy at work, with friends, or with his hobbies. He tries to spend at least...
