    I think all I need is to get away.

    I feel like my entire life is just a giant Facebook page. My parents want to know everything about me, it's like there's no sense of privacy in this world anymore. Attention can be nice sometimes, but this is just too much. What next, they're going to start following me to...

    I hate living with my parents.

    They get on my damn nerves every single day. Don't get me wrong, I love my mother and don't know what I would do without her. My dad... Yeah I would cry if he died but we aren't close. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful that they do provide everything for me and right now I don...

    To set my own agenda

    and not have to consider people too much, at the expense of my goals and interests. I just don't see it happening anytime soon, with me being under surveillance for self-harm or suicide attempts.

    How Many Years???

    It has been so many years since I lived truly alone and on my own that I can't even remember what its like anymore. I have been in several relationships over the last 2 decades, each right after the other. I find myself wanting to live by myself, taking responsibility for myself...

    It's What I Have Always Dreamed Of.....

    I don't 'hate' having a family, but I would much rather go out somewhere and be alone. Leave my child with her father and just go. Never be seen or heard from again. I hate the constant upkeep of societies rules, always having to please others, never having my own place, my own...

    Fed Up With People

    Or Do I

    I am almost always alone. I cannot handle people and their greed and hypocrissy. I am not a halfway friend. If I give of myself, it is complete...and usually to complete morons who want to classify "friends" into sections of their life which usually means... what that person...

    My familys a noisy bunch.

    It makes me anxious. If I lived alone, I'd be able to meditate better. And I'd be calmer to face the day ahead. Sometimes I want to scream "SHUT THE FACK UP, just SHUT UP OMFG SHUT THE HELL UP WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE" but I won't cause it'd get me thrown out quicker than...

    I am currently in a long-term relationship,

    and it's my partner, his best friend and me. While we all get a long, I don't know how much longer I can live with them both. Before we moved in with the Best Friend to save some money, we lived together and all round, I was happier. Right now I feel like I am waiting for my...

    I Feel Your Pain Brother

    Three years ago I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that whatever was bad could and would happen to me.  Through a series of life changing authors I was made aware that there is a different way to view the world, a different perspective to consider.  I found out it is all about...

    I can only imagine how many ways it's so much better. Yeah, costs more. But what would you do to buy your freedom? I have never been so excited to move out. Weird how I always thought my parents would be the reason I wanted to leave so bad, and in the end it's not. How I see it...

    I just want to live alone.

    That's it. Just be free from other people who don't even care about you. I just want all these people to leave me alone and stop badgering me, in every way they do. Family, friends I don't care about any one of them. I am better off without all of them, and they're all better...

    Alone

    Is this too much to ask for? People assume I'm so depressed because I want to live alone. Lonliness brings me happiness. I haven't found a reason why I should share my life with anothing being.
