I Need to Leave

    So tired of this. I used to be independent.

    Confident. Cute. Met him 13 years ago And all that changed. He has slowly diminished me, or I should say I allowed myself to be diminished. I feel so unattractive. I feel so inept. I feel like I'm an irritation. I hate that I feel these things. This is not who I am! Why...

    I'm really scared right now; I think I have

    head problems. The doctors don't know what, though. I want to leave this place and never look back. I've told too many lies here, done too many things I've regretted. I want to go where no one can find me. I feel like the pain I carry inside me is slowly killing me from the...

    One day my husband will understand

    that what I say when I'm angry is actually the truth. He says I only say I'm leaving to hurt him, really I do mean it but then we make up & day to day life isn't so bad that I can't stay for the kids' sakes. My husband has said I should stay until they leave, they are only 6...

    No matter where I am,

    who I am with and what we are doing, I always feel like I need to be alone. I feel like I need to drop all my possessions and go off on my own. I'm afraid one day the feeling will overwhelm to the point of actually doing so.

    I would want to start fresh somewhere,

    don't we all? but my destination would be kind of different, Somewhere, where i don't have to hide. Somewhere, surrounded by those who accepts. Somewhere, surrounded by those who are there always. Somewhere to find a unique love. Somewhere not here.

    The need to leave keeps returning.

    Over and over. I just want to drop everything ad walk out. Get away. Move around. I don't feel safe doing this alone. Run with me?

    I am lost. I'm giving up

    and I don't really care what's going to happen to me later. My family don't know what to do with me anymore, all of my "friends" ignore me as though I'm the Black Plague. I'm never good enough for anyone and I'll never be. These boys classified me as the d.u.f.f in the group...

    I need to get away from here.

    This man doesn't truly love me. he's cheating on me, tho I can't prove it. I don't want him to come home. And if he does I want to be told the truth. Be a man!

    If anyone out there has ever had visions,

    or has made any kind of prophetic prediction ever, please respond to this post! I have before, but lately they have been getting more vivid. I need to leave the town I live in; I really need to get away from here. Don't get me wrong, I love my life, and I love where I live...
