    I just want to run as fast

    and far as I can if could just to get away from all the lies and the truth behind it. If running away will make me forget I would. If running away can lessen the pain I would. Because facing them right now might be the end of me.

    I love my job but it gets me real stressful

    and it makes me wonder if the part of my job that I don't feel right is something that I have to overcome or if it simply means there's some other job fits me better. Totally can't stop thinking running away to an better life where I don't have work late and don't have to talk...

    I've found myself and changed

    but everyone sees me as the old me and it's hard to change their views on me

    I'm tired of being a martyr

    for my kids. Thus far I'd done a good job of putting the idea of true love out of my head. I've analyzed it... Turned it upside down, inside out... At the end of the day my heart still aches for that ever elusive Soul Mate. I feel silly using the term, but I've had a taste of...

    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...

    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.

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

    tempted to just keep going and never come back. If I had somewhere else to go, I'd go there. What I would absolutely love right about now is to meet someone fantastic. Someone who shares my interests, dreams and fantasies. Someone who I can fall in love with and who would fall...

    Tomorrow is a new day

    and yesterday is behind me. How I wish I could turn back the hands of time and change the things I have done and repair broken hearts. But I am tired of running from the pain, the hurt, the regret….I have told the person who I love that I loved them and wanted to be with them...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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
