I Need to Get Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 478 People

    I need to just walk somewhere.

    .. An open field where I can be in touch with the cool Autumn air. A place where I can be completely alone, completely myself==the world's untouched beauty at my fingertips. My thoughts coming and going, spilling out of my head one by one. I want time to love those thoughts. I...

    Nostagia Is Poison

    I've come to the conclusion that I'm in the wrong generation. A friend and I were talking about how things use to be. Naturally, things change, but what do you do when you just need to rebel a little? My boyfriend is ten years older than me and I listen to all these stories and I...

    I've been feeling SO restless

    and frustrated recently. The strength of my feelings has actually scared me (really scared me) on occasion. It's like, I don't know, someone has been slamming my head into the ground, over and over again, or holding my head underwater, and I'm trying to keep control of...

    In Order To Revamp My Whole Lifestyle, I Need To Close The Doors Of The Past

    Lately, I feel as though the place that I call my hometown no longer feels like home.  At the age of 30, I am stuck in a community where jobs are non-existant, the entertainment is lacking, and the average age of the townspeople is well over 75.It's so frustrating, knowing that...

    Sometimes... You Just Need To Get Away.

    Been stressed to the max. Dealing with new feelings I didn't know I had. And it's really unusual for me to feel like this. I'm a very happy, go-lucky person. So I think I just need to get out of town and do something. Visit friends or some such things. Gah. Ideas?

    I Want To Get Away!

    Sometimes (like now!) I just feel the need to get away. And I'm not talking about hiding out in my room or going out for a ten-minute "cool down." I'm talking about going on a loong road trip, just me, myself and I, get a hotel and start a new life under another alias for a month...
