    I don't have any feelings anymore

    but worthlessness and sadness. I just spent nearly an hour crying my eyes out, what did I do to deserve this. My family is Buddhist, we are supposed to be grateful and all that but I don't feel like it at all. My life is really falling apart, I'm only 13 and I'm worried about...

    The state I've lived in most of my life has

    never been where I want to stay. It's a huge tourist attraction, yet it doesn't feel that special to me. I feel jaded from it. Every day I dream of just running away and starting over with my life, but money is an issue. I can't fulfill that dream without setting up a job and...

    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.

    Wish i was brave & strong enough to leave him.

    Hopefully i will in March if he don't tell me he loves me. Might be a dumb reason but oh will. Im not gonna be with someone for a year & they haven't told me they love me. Cause they never will! :( . I wont regret it either.

    Somewhere Only I Know

    There's something enticing about lacing up your shoes, slinging a bag over your shoulder, and walking out the front door.  There's also something exciting about the idea of just disappearing, going wherever you wanted to go when you wanted to go there. I want to leave this place...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    and my only option is to run away and try again in another state, with another life. My relationship with my boyfriend is unsteady at all times, my friends think I'm a fool for going back to him after this last fight, I'm emotionally stuck on a person that plays with my heart...

    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.

    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.
