    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...

    Sometimes I feel I've got to run away.

    - Tainted love I've recently been wanting to run away from home more and more. I don't know why though. I literally have so much. I do love my parents even though sometimes I wish I could smack them in the face. But I just sometimes wonder what it would be like if I did run...

    Wishing To Be Somewhere Else...

    Lately I've been thinking about running far away, starting my life over, and rebooting my whole system over...I know I'm not alone in this idea...My life has become something that I just don't even recognize anymore. Get up, get dressed, go to a job that I'm not happy in, work...

    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...

    I've been really annoyed with adults lately

    so I decided to run away. I wanted to inform my friends about my plan so they wouldn't be worried about me. I knew I was gonna tell my friend Michaela for sure, but I was debating whether I would tell my friend Brandie. After a few weeks of thinking about it, I decided to tell...

    Sometimes, like tonight,

    I look at my life and I wish I could just get up walk out the door and never look back. Take nothing with me. Leave every single piece of myself and who I am behind. I wouldn't even take my car I'd just walk and hitchhiker. Find a new identity and start all over from scratch...

    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...

    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...

    that maybe just maybe life wasn't meant to actually handle for ourselves. I have felt for a pretty good while, that I wish I could be free. To have all the world starring at me with no-one to pick at me or have fun. Who wants to sit back and watch their life skip away...

    Sometimes I wish I was more irresponsible

    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.

    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.

    But I stopped and thought about it. If I ran away from all the issues and problems that I am facing, then how in the world will I understand the meanings of life, love, mistakes and forgiveniness,

    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.
