    Is there any point in life

    where it doesn't suck. You work, and then go home. Work then go home. The world is also getting scary. So many people struggling. I'm probably going to have to work til I'm 90 years old. There won't be social security for us. The working people is the backbone, and we are...

    Not Again

    I can't believe I'm in this spot again.   The desire to get in my car and drive to anywhere but here is strong.  I want to start over with a clean slate.  The problem is, I know that 's not possible.  We're never given a truly clean slate...

    I find that sometimes you can't run away from

    being you, so you should just run away from society. This is because everything you feel on the inside isn't because that's natural, it's because it's the people on the outside putting it there. So if you run away from those people, the inside will clear itself up in time.

    I have just returned from Amsterdam,

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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, 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..

    For a long time in my youth I would dream of

    running away. All the yelling, shouting and drama in my life felt like too much sometimes. I would often just close my eyes and imagine what it would be like to just leave and start a new life. Back then I felt that the world was against me, and that everyone wanted me dead. I...

    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.

    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.
