    I am suffocating here.

    Despondency has attached itself to my heart. Yearning for an escape, I have yet to find. A place to immerse myself in solitude, and listen to my Soul.

    Getting Out Of Ones Comfort Zone Heals The Soul

    I love to travel. When I'm away from familiar surroundings I feel a sense of freedom. I'm able to hear myself think and de-stress. That's good therapy for me. It would also be great to have close friends to share it with.

    I want to escape too.

    Meditation is stop gap escapism until you decide where you want to escape to. I haven't decided yet.

    I wish I could just escape right now.

    Even if just for a few days. I could use some rest and relaxation. Time away from all the stress. A place with preferably with some white sand, some small waves coming in and lots of Sun. I'd just lay in my beach chair breathing the fresh air of the misty breeze coming in...

    I really wish I had a place to go

    when I need to get away from life. Sleep is my only option. I can't even go to my room without getting yelled at. In my mind, whenever I'm upset, I always think "I wanna go home.." But then I think "no I don't, what does home have to offer me?" And a lot of times when I think...

    Sometimes the melodrama at home makes me wish

    for the relative peace of my hostel. A moment of reverie on the subject reminded me how I wished for a release from hostel politics. At that time, there was seemed to be no place like home to head to for relative peace.

    The picture attached (Photoshopped by me btw)

    to this post is my idea of a truly happy place, where there are no worries and I'm left to think and create as I please. A soft quilt to lay in the grass, to gaze at the clouds or stars above, a gentle breeze dashing through the field and the lone tree...paradise.

    I see love this way, real love is devoted.

    But being in love, will die if you let yourself keep slowly dying. You have to stay alive and positive and real. Making compromises that slowly kill your soul will also kill love. Struggles are a different thing. I'm not saying put on a happy face when you're hurt or feeling...
