    Place - that is the key object.

    Not to have one or to know yours is a most frustrating thing. I will be finding a new one soon. I must, I need to and I will.

    Always, i feel the wind calling me,

    tugging me somewhere...but i do not know where that place could be. Sometimes a voice or an image will flash in my head or a dream...and it brings the sense of "home". It is familiar, yet completely strange to me. Where is this place i belong?

    Anywhere But Here.

    Not in this life, not like this. All the stress and pain is too much. Alone in it really, as I try to cope.   Somewhere else, there may be life waiting for me, but I don't know if I will ever, ever find it.

    Anywhere, But Here

    I never felt like Belgium was my country. Yes, I was born and raised there. Often, I went away to France for a week, but usually I was always in Belgium. I never felt safe though, or as if I was with 'my people'. I felt like a stranger, not like a black sheep, but just an odd...

    Somewhere....

    I am sure that if I do belong somewhere, it isn't here. I don't know where it is....I don't know if I will ever find it....but wherever it is there had better be a lot of cats!

    Out of Place

    I posted a version of this in another group but it belongs here more... I 've always felt different than those around me, like I didn't fit in. Mostly everyone thought I was just shy or introverted...they were all wrong. I've never opened up to anyone about this because...

    Sweden

    I've never been to Sweden. I don't know what it's like there. I don't know if I would fit in. I don't know anyone from there. Why do I feel like my purpose in life is to live there? It makes no sense, but I can't help it. I need to go to Sweden.

    Anywhere But Here, But I'd Prefer Aisa..

    I'll be completely honest, I hate the work I do and the town I'm in. In a family of knuckle-draggers, I think I'm the only one standing erect with higher brain functions intact. I love my family don't get me wrong, but I think they are total idiots. Out of parents and four...
