    Sometimes I Want To Run Away From Home, But I Just Can't

    I thought my life was hard. That my parents don't understand. They hear me, but they don't LISTEN. I am sometimes driven to run away. I would, but my dog. I love him so much. I would take him with me, but he wouldn't understand why  "mom and dad" aren't coming with us. If I...

    Finally I got a scholarship to study abroad.

    I am soooo happy. But this morning it just hit me. I have to leave home and fly 4000 km to be in a new country. I have to take care of myself and study. It is very exciting and very scary at the same time. I am sure many of you have been there. Help me.

    I enjoy being alone. I am able to entertain myself in ways I can't when I'm around others. But I hate being lonely and left or forgotten. That causes a person to be lonely.

    I enjoy being with other people but I think it's important to be able to sit with yourself and your own thoughts. A time to reflect and regroup.
