    It's Not A Solution ...

    When I'm having a difficult time, I often fantasize about packing a bag and running away.  I would just put a few essential things in a bag and go to the nearest train station or airport and head off into the sunset.  Just disappear and start again somewhere new. ...

    I want to just leave

    for a while.. Meet new people, go new places, and (I know this is clichΓ©) learn more about myself and who I am. I don't think this is possible though, so this will probably stay as a dream until I can make it on my own.

    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.
