I Want to Move Away From Here

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 202 People

    I'm 26 and just got my Bachelors in Marketing

    last year. I had a job as a retail manager off the bat and after a year of doing that, quit and walked out when my boss was rude and disrespectful toward me in front of my colleagues. I am now extremely happy and in perpetual turmoil over my decision; this is day 22 of...

    Gotta Get Away

    I want to move to Texas. The south is so beautiful. And most of all, it's not cold in the winter! I've started working on my plan this evening. I have a deadline.

    Done

    All of my closest friends have moved away. I'm single. Work at a pizza place and live with my lesbian parents. Thinking I might just go ahead and kill myself.

    Qusenel

    When I find a flagged hotel to own. I'm out of this place. Qusenel is a great place to visit and not to live. Too small.

    I Think...

    I think everyone has the dream of being whisked away to a place far away from everything so you can just forget it all. No more problems. No more pain. No more worries... if anyone else feels like that I think we need a vacation. lol :)

    Far Away In the Country

      Somewhere where no one knows me. New people. Of course I would miss some people, but this is just to hard to stay. If I could have my way I swear to God I would pack up, not tell anyone and leave, but I won't go to a life on the streets, at least I don't think I will.

    Rotting Roots

    Since 5-6 years I've been here, planted in this big space, in Earth's ***, I must think I never ever thought about being happy, having a good life or anything. In fact, I come to the conclusion I have lost way too much of my life as to consider what I've earned.But what is wrong...

    I Want To Move But I'm Scared!

    It sounds silly to say but I'm scared to move out of state by myself!  I'm an adult, about 2 weeks away from turning 32, so I shouldn't be afraid for crying out loud.  But it's a pretty major life change and I'm intimidated by it.  I've known for a long time I've...

    I think about it more often then not.

    I wonder what else is out there and who else is out there. There has to be more. Everyday that goes by I feel more and more trapped by where I live. It's a small town with small minds and I wonder if I'll ever be able to get out. I've also wondered if leaving is really going to...
