    I walked away from it all,

    I didn't run away from it because I made it clear I was done and walking towards a different path and a different light-which I'm glad I did. People will follow you and try and tear you down no matter how much you make it clear to them you don't anything to do with them, they...

    My Mum

    I haven't walked away from much.  I walked away from lying friends.  Honestly, I walked away from her before she turned on me, but it's better to walk away than argue, right?  Don't go away mad, just go away.

    I walked away from my emotions.

    From my feelings. From friendship. From love. From joy. From my laughter. I walked away because I was too tired to pay the price for them.
