I Need a Break From My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 705 People

    Why can't I get this break!

    !!! I have only had ONE day, ONLY ONE day in which I felt carefree and I had my space, is this one day too much or something that things have to suck this much directly the next day. This really sucks and I am sick of this.

    The Wild Card Is Age

    I'll be 57 years old in a few days. Everything has changed with respect to how I fight and struggle in life as the storms and tribulations arise. Challenges and hurdles now seem like the Hoover Dam to the helpless salmon as he bashes his head against it over and over, not...

    Just a week away from the stress

    and trials of life would be fine. I don't need/want a holiday, just the freedom to relax without stress at home. That would be marvellous.

    Who Doesn't?

    I ask you: who doesn't need a break at times from the hectic, mad rush of life? I'm not saying go jump out a window but we all need time to stop and take in life. To enjoy a simple, blissful moment of infinity without regulations or rules. A moment without having to work, to...

    I seriously need a break from everything.

    I need some time to not exist. Closing my eyes does nothing for this wish. I don't want any thoughts, any responsibility. I don't want to feel anything, not even the ground under my feet. Life is currently killing me. Funny how that is. Everyday I feel on the brink of total and...

    To Do Nothing Can Mean Everything

    Relaxing is an inward process for me. I can do it most places because if I can get my brain to be still for a moment then I have succeeded. Seriously..sometimes all I need to do is sit and hit the off switch to my brain. I am a major over-analyzer and will think and think and...

    A Break From Life?

    Can we really get away from it all? Can we really take a break from life? Or does life need a break from me? I get that confused sometimes. Just want to smile and be happy.

    It feels selfish to want to walk away from the responsibilities that choke me.  I don't want to run away, I just want to take a break.  Get a change of scenery, recharge myself.  My need for relief is starting to break me.  I just want to worry about me for...
