    It Might Be A Serious Problem...

    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...

    Escapist

    Escapist - A person who escapes daily routine to a world of fantasy. Me - A person who can't deal with reality and does anything to escape it. I don't like problems, conflicts or difficulties. I wish to lead a peaceful, happy life. It's easy to please me. I'm a pretty simple...

    Ever since I can remember, I've been addicted to escaping. Whether it was escaping from my living situation, running away from friends, or simply escaping from reality, it's always been a problem with me.There are so many friends that I've abandoned over the years, and usually...

    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...

    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...
