    I live about three hours away from home

    but don't get enough chances to go visit. Today I wish I was back home. I make other people happy by staying where I am for them, because they want me to. But I end up missing my home even more, and not wanting to be where I am.

    It really sucks that we live far apart.

    I got to see my cousin and her daughter this weekend but I have to go back to school on Monday. I don't know what got over me but all soon as we dropped them off back to the hotel and I went back to my dorm, I started to cry uncontrollably. This feeling is so sucky... :-(

    Should I Move Back Home Because I Miss My Family ?

    Even though I'm young- only 19, I know how it feels to miss your family so much to the point of tears. I moved away from home this year in March. At first I was fine because I felt it was the right decision. I wanted to show my family, especially my dad that his extreme alcoholic...

    I try to find things to distract me from

    thinking of them and home, but the distance is not something I can seem to get used to, and missing them never gets easier. I think of them everyday, and although I do keep in touch almost everyday, it's definitely not the same as being around them physically. :(
