    Just How Would I Do That?

    I checked with travel bureaus and no one had a trip outside yourself.  Other trips end up being temporary diversions.  Fun, but when you come home, as we usually all do, life is still the way we left it.

    Just Wanna Literally Start Walking And Don't Stop Until Whenever.

    I'm 22 and not even interested in doing this routine of trying to be content with the day to day cycle of living in America. I swear I'm trying but I'm absolutely miserable. It's like I can't achieve my own routine. I don't know who I am. Just wish there was a place I could go...

    Is It Selfish?

    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...

    Need A Break From Life!

    I feel that I have completely lost my identity and am now finding that with absolutely no alone time-my health is starting to deteriate. Sometimes I really feel that I could just walk away and never look back and be fine with that. I have an 18 yr old, a seventeen yr old, a 25...

    I wish I could fly to Russia

    and just stay there for a good long while, I'd lay down in the snow with only my music, food, books, and coat.

    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.

    Enough

    I have experiences many disappointments, but not much happiness. I'm tired of everyday being a struggle through my memories. I wish I had some joy in my life, to hold on to, memories to keep me afloat on my dark days, but I do not. I want to live someone else's life, where they...

    I'm feeling rather dejected today.

    I'm lacking peers I can connect with. I'm tired of people my age. I try to talk to other people who share experiences with me, but to no avail. It always amounts to the same meaningless drivel in the end. I'd like to find something new and stimulating, preferably someONE new. I...

    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...

    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...

    RIP to My Old Life.

    I kind of mourn my old life when I was single, childless and a student.  I know that time marches on but it would be nice to have no worries except law school books and which new pair of shoes to buy.  Seems like a lifetime ago in my new life of mortgages, keeping the...

    I'm so tired of the routine of pointlessness that my life has been taking for the past 18 months. It is now coming to being unbearable. I'm 20 years old, and I finished at a foundation course at a theatre school and tried to get in again only to be turfed out over and over and...

    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...

    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.

    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...
