    I have walked away from many stupid situations and from people being mean and rude, but never from someone in need.

    I've walked away from alot, actually. It seems whatever or whomever I've walked away from, was something or someone I didn't need in my life. Often it wasn't an easy decision or an easy action, but it was the right one. The farther away I got the more clearly I could see...

    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.

    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...

    I chose to walk away from the strongest love

    I've ever known, for it was the lesser of two evils. You see, we were going down soulmate, and with us my love for you. So I walked... I can't bear even the thought of a life without this love, so I walked because the pain that comes with this seemed far easier than the pain of...

    My Mum

    I walked away from my relationship with my mother. It has been roughly 18months since we last spoke and in all honesty I haven't missed her on bit! Some people are just toxic and it rubs off on you. She abused me emotionally all my life, constantly putting me down or belittling...
