    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.

    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.

    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!

    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...

    Runaway/Adventure 2014

    Now, I've taken a new approach. We are going to be running away together, as a group. Details will be discussed later. Now, what will happen is that we'll arrange to meet up (I live in Texas) and then we'll be heading to Cali for a little bit, okay? We don't HAVE to meet in...

    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...
