    in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you’re willing to lose.”

    All my life I have felt like running away.

    Just feels easier. I am a 50/50 guy. I do , but I don't. I want to run away for the simple fact of starting my life over again anew. However I don't, because of my friends and family. Depression does this, and it can get real tiresome.

    Run Run Run

    I feel like I have been running my whole life.The biggest problem I have with running away is that I take me along. Being raised to hate myself because I was born a male is hard. I look back and realize this, even somewhat understand and accept it.That being said it still is so...

    I don't mean permanently but could go away for for a decent amount of time, up to 6 months and I would be happy to stay in UK or go further afield.
