I Want to Run Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,425 People

    I've been kicked out of my grandmothers house

    and now I'm living with my aunt but I hate it here. she's a really good mom to her children but I feel like I'm just a bother on her. I am always in the way and I always get on her nerves and I feel like if I just left everything will be good and everyone would be happier.

    Itd be cool to run away .

    . Go live in the wild and live primitive , like my ancestors xD , but im not selfish you gotta think about the pain your putting your family through.. Youll regret it if you do runaway, you have no survival skills , weapons to hunt , but if you do hey go for it haha

    I want to go some place

    where nobody knows me. Where I can be myself and nobody will judge me, because they don't know me. I can start all over and create a new me that can manage stress and doesn't freak out when people become close to me. I'd also like to come back to my old life later, and see if...

    Leave to never come back.

    Leave all the bullshit behind me. The people, the arguments, the anger, their judgments, the hostility, the weirdness, the explanations, the negativity, the attitude. Leave it and them behind me. I want to start fresh. Start new. I wish this was an option.
