    Sometimes Life Brings You Down

    not sure why cause i am a happy person. i just always wonder 'what if i'd have done this' or 'what if i'd have done that'. nothing that i really want to talk about.....it'd be too hard to sort out anyway. i'll feel one way today, and completely different tomorrow...

    You know one of those days

    where the walls are closing in? Nothing in particular is going wrong but it just feels like there is an undercurrent of things just waiting to happen. I feel like there is always so much that goes unsaid and it's days like this where you really think about it the most.

    Fantasy

    Yes - running away seems to be a frequent fantasy lately.   I know I won't do it, but I'm so sick of things the way they are.  I am not really unhappy, I am financially comfortable, have good relationships with my family, love my kids, love my home and neighborhood, the cars I...

    Those of us who are prone to tearing ourselves

    down may well have developed this behaviour by being torn down by others so often and for so long that no experience is complete unless these's a tear down. Even if the tear down is self administered......

    But then I realise that (at least now) I'd have

    no money and nowhere to go, and I'm just not made for life on the streets. So I'll just have to stick with my parents. But as soon as I can, I'll get away from here.

    I often walk to the next town over with my dog,

    Sometimes I do, things like the weather get in

    the way. I wish I could hide from my feelings. I hate being human and having the ability to feel all of these negative emotions. I hate being sad and crying myself to sleep at night. I just wanna run away...from myself.

    Sometimes I think about what it would be like

    to just go away and pretend to be someone else. I would go by a fake name and not share anything real about myself. This wouldn't be permanent but it would be a fun vacation from my life.

    Dreading This Weekend

    I'm feeling so melancholy and unable to deal with the long holiday weekend or the parties. At least my work distracts me from this feeling and gives me a sense of purpose. I want to turn my phone off and disappear. I'd go somewhere totally desolate, calm, peaceful. Just myself...

    alone at night. Walking through boulevards, with eyes filled with glowing fascination. Appearing as if I am a lost person in a new world, ready to embark an adventure.

    Where Would I Go??

    My first instinct when things start going wrong is to hide.  I do my daily "need to things", but afterward I just don't want to face anyone.  I will drive around in my car for hours. When I tire of that I will just find a place to park.  Sit in my car...

    I hate how meaningless the routine of life is.

    We have jobs and obligations, we get up, try and create some economic value, get paid, pay bills and sleep again. If we have time we try and gloss over the cyclical meaninglessness by socialising over a few drinks or playing sports etc... all temporary simulations to hide how...

    Sometimes, you just want to run away just

    for a little while; away from your life and your thoughts everything, to have time alone , time to settle things in your mind.. you just need a vacation from the world, a break from people, a break from everything in your life..

    I was sad and lonely and I figured if I was going to feel that way I may as well be somewhere awesome so I booked the flight on Tuesday night and flew out on Wednesday morning. I had a great time. Now I'm home I just want to go again.

    The cause and effect are nothing but good, I live alone and i can get away from my "life". Suicide and running away are the best options as of the moment
