    I wish I could but I can't afford to live

    independently yet. I'm working on it and I know I'll achieve my freedom. I'm tired and sick of everyone and I know as long as I'm with them I'm always under authority. I want to live in another country where no one knows me and start all over again. I believe I can do it.

    Out On My Lonesome

    I wish I could just get me a place out in the middle of the cold nowhere forest. Build a house there and mill out the rest of my days there. LOL I'm so young but I want to pretty much retire and go rough it. Hunt my food and live at one with nature.  I'm just...

    I Daydream About What It Would Be Like.

    I always feel like running away. I don't like my life, i hate it & i don't think i love anyone enough to sacrifice the potential for me to be happy one day. I don't think anyone would blink an eye if i was to disappear. Life would go back to normal for them. It's kind of like i...

    Indiana To North Carolina...Or Somewhere.

    I don't hate my family, my friends, or my hometown. I love them very much and I know that they love me. And I know moving so far won't mean I won't have problems wherever I end up. I've just been finding myself feeling more and more unhappy lately. It seems that I've blinked my...

    Been there, done that a few times.

    I feel like I made a blank trip moving to L.A. I come where EVERYONE is familiar, & I STILL get treated the same dirty way as I got treated by my family. People here are hard & mean for no reason. I can't even spark up a conversation with anyone.

    It's funny how stress becomes so much that your instinct to run kicks in. Sometimes just want to run to the other side of the world and reinvent myself.
