I Want To Leave And Never Look Back

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 598 People

    That's how I feel many times.

    I feel like I just want to get up, walk out of my house, without closing the door and saying goodbye to anyone. Id just get up and go...don't know where but just start walking to wherever it leads me, to a new place far away, anywhere away from here.

    Packing some of my stuff

    and driving off and never returning sounds great. But I don't know where to start. I need a place, a job, furniture. I just don't know how to get started. Anyone do this before?

    Somedays that is the thing weighing on my mind.

    Too many responsibilities that I shouldn't have. I would love to take my kids and just leave this place, never looking back... And then reality kicks in... I'm stuck here.

    Finding The Place Where I Belong

    Okay, when I graduated from highschool, I admit that I wasn't particularly.....positive....about my future. Determined to make a name for myself? Yeah, sure, why not? But even with that mindset I was always a bit of a pessimist. I could always pull the worst thoughts out of a...

    If when I was 15 I had wound up pregnant,

    I would have been physically, mentally, spirituality, and environmentally ready. However today at age 25, I' m trying hard not to be scared shitless. My environment is extremely uncomfortable and I cannot grow freely this way. I need to run away.

    One-way trips are so scary,

    yet thrilling! to know that you'll never return to the life you had, leaving behind everything and everyone, cutting the ties, starting new ones... No one could ever be prepared for that.

    I'm so better than this place and I know it! I want to do better things. It's so worthless here, and I've made so many mistakes here, i just want to leave it all, and run away. Forget about it all, start brand new.

    That would be cool, but it's too risky.
