    I've thought of being in a big city,

    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.

    Same ****, day in and day out.

    I ask for a rope to save me from drowning and i am handed an anchor instead. Its damned if i do, damned if i dont. I have so many things i need to scream, but on my words i choke. The anger pent up inside of me makes me feel like a prisoner in solitary confinement and most days...

    I feel like if I leave right

    now no-one would notice. I'm alone most of the time and I'm tired of this empty feeling I have inside.

    Ok. So this is my first experience.

    Most days I sit and wonder why I stay here. I know I have no money, no job, no where to go. I'll lose everything. But my dad has a serious drinking problem and all he does is shout abuse at me every night. I start to believe everything he says to me. Everyday I wish I could just...

    I want to sort of reinvent myself I guess?

    It's just everyone looks at everything in the past and it's just everything and everyone I'm living around are so boring and dull and it's just so lifeless and I want to do something. I really want to see the world for myself without any setbacks or restrictions because the life...

    Sometimes I wish I could run away.

    From all my problems and even myself. I wish I was tough enough to just start brand new, hop into my car, and just go. Random turns around the corners. Left, right, left , left, right, left. Wipe my last tear on my pink and red hearted steering wheel "hun, we had some good...

    Everyday I think about just leaving everything

    and going to live in a tent in the bush. I feel like I have to many responsibilities to do this. An ageing father, a mother with health problems, an abusive step father, a sick dog and a sister who I constantly worry about. I fear that if I did leave something bad would...

    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...

    I've been having these thoughts

    for a couple of years, but I don't have the balls to do it. I just want to go up one night take the car and drive away. No destination, no nothing, just me and the road driving into the abyss. It feels like I need a vacation from life itself.

    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...

    Life is just too rough at times

    even family feels empty and useless. The feeling of getting underappreciated, misunderstood, judged, lost, pressures of being confined into gender roles and duties, overtly high expectations, and extremely low expectations. I just want to run away from it all. Being by myself is...

    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.

    and selfish. But I'm not built for it. So, I live miserable most of the time. If you call it living. I have family that I must sacrifice myself for. Jesus shoulda had a sister so we could relate.

    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...
