I Have Thought About Running Away Before

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 301 People

    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...

    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 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.
