    It Only Hurts More, The Longing.

    It is truly an addiction. Escaping occupies so much of my thoughts, along with the loathing. I think of going far away from people and civilization to just be......without complicating anything else or dragging anyone else down. I feel like a failure-anchor, I am not just a...

    I Need...

    I can sing well, dance well, run in heels and learn instruments quickly. I can sleep completely comfortably on a hard surface and fold T-shirts with one hand, cook anything that you can think of and touch my feet to the top of my head. These are some of my talents. Random...

    Inhale, Exhale.

    Hell Yeah!

    ..aaand I'm not proud of it. Proves that I'm a little coward who lacks the strength to deal with her own problems. Really, how am I going to be successful if I keep distancing myself from solutions? Has anybody found a cure to this? It sucks and it makes you depend on others...

    It seems like it's all I can think of now-a-days. I'll be sitting in class and I'm like, "hmmm...I bet if I just get up and walk out no one will stop me. I won't even answer if they ask where I'm going. I could get on the bus too, it's totally gonna be outside in like 10 minutes...

    Obsession With The Idea Of Escape

    I'm sick. I'm sick of the world around me. Every day I see something in the media (in some form) that causes me pain. Every second of alone time I get with my mind is spent thinking of ways in which things could be different to how they are. I'm not happy with anything as it is...
