    I hate this. I hate being in all this negativity. I just want to leave and move somewhere where no one even knows my name. I want a new identity. I'm sick of this life.

    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 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.
