    Still Here.

    As a kid, I used to pack up this tiny pink suitcase. I filled it with my favorite clothes and toys, and I would push it out onto the roof when my mom and dad were fighting. I used to sit up there with that suitcase, dreaming about where I could run off to. Sometimes I would...

    things that can make you happier,

    theirs lots of things to do out there. But don't do drugs! Haha even though that can probably make you happy! But just don't! I bless everyone to have happier lives, and to be much creative! We need all kinds of people in this world!

    I want to run away but I want a group of people

    to go with. At the moment I don't have really anywhere to go, but I feel that in a group it would be better because we could all stick together. I live in England, South west.

    I've Done It Before...

    I can't say that I'm proud of myself, yet I am. When I was nineteen, I left home to be with my ex. The situation at home wasn't pretty, and I felt unwanted, unloved, and unappreciated to boot. I thought I was doing myself a favor, but I soon found myself in a worse situation - my...

    I Need Someone To Talk To

    I'm struggling on a decision of running away from home or staying and being miserable. I know it's a choice to be miserable or happy but I don't think I can take this anymore.
