    I don't need a break from my life

    as much as I need a break from all the crazy people who drive me crazy on a daily basis. Sometimes, I can't wait to get home just so I don't have to deal with any more humans! Too many crazy humans in this world! They can't drive. They cheat each other. They never have anything...

    I need a break to catch my own breath.

    To have time to sit myself down and look deep into my heart. Wave to and smile at that happy little girl that has hidden somewhere really well. A break to be able to not worry, not cry, not stress, not be in pain. To stop feeling lost. To step back and see the bigger picture. To...

    I'm overwhelmed with work in the cafeteria.

    I go from task to task to task. It wears my legs out because I have a disability that requires how I walk and when I stand for a long time, I'm tired. My boss won't even give me a break but she gives everyone a break except me.

    I get so fed up with how life goes from time to

    time. Every single day just feels like it repeats and I feel so lonely. No fun. No fun. Everything just seems the exact same. Things get way crazy. Just a break would be wonderful.

    Sometimes it would be nice to truly escape.

    I suppose the only real way out is death. Right now that's not an option, but I feel like I'm just dropping lower every day. I'm emotionally exhausted and it's making me physically run down. My home life is stressful and unless I am drunk, etc. I really can't stand being there...

    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.
