    I don't have a place to get away from everything

    but I do have a "happy place" I tend to imagine going to before going to sleep. In my happy place it's always snowing and winter and there's a big log cabin with an old beat up huge leather chair with blankets I imagine walking round the snowy woods and into my warm cabin...

    Just let the one person I trust most know where I am and leave. Just get away from everyone and everything.

    I want to be in a place

    that is serene and full with nature like dandelions, trees, grass, etc. I want to sit back on a tree and listen to my music, and either read or nap peacefully without worrying about anything stressful. :3

    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...

    or a house, someplace secluded, private and away from people. Some place with lots of acreage. In the woods maybe, maybe near lake.

    I wish I had my own secret world.

    One where there is no disease. No one ages. No one would make fun of you for anything, only complements. I controlled how things work. I'd live in a nice Japanese style palace. I'd have servants that would do anything I would ask them. Only me and my true friends could see the...

    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...

    I wish I had a small cabin,

    hidden away in a wooded area I could escape to when I can't take the problems in life. Somewhere where me and my husband could go to be alone and just enjoy each other and have a romantic dinner or something. Or someplace to chill when I'm angry and upset.

    I'm starting to get those old feelings again

    that hope Is fading and I really am fed up of life. I'm sure there are people out there with similar feelings and possibly worse problems than me. But I can't help the way I feel,wish I never woke up today to be honest. And I hope I don't wake up tomorrow.

    Before I was married,

    I used to get in my car and drive up the coast. Stopping to just chill and watch the ocean. It was so stress relieving and freeing. I've been married now 13 years, and I'm long overdue.
