    I Want To Walk Away From My Life And Just Start Over

    I found this site googling "I want to walk away from my life". I’m not brave enough for suicide and perhaps I do have a tiny glimmer of hope that life might be better..just somewhere else. Where no one knows me and I could start over. I did the “right” thing for many years...

    I'm sorry I can't be perfect and do everything you say. I know this is against your rules but I really have somethings to say. I need to breathe and I want to be free. Not live under the same roof doing things we can never agree. I want to smile and laugh and twirl. In everything...

    Some Days

    Some days I wish I could just walk away from it all. To be able to leave it all behind and escape. I don't mean all the time. My life is pretty good most of the time, but would like to leave it all behind on days and not worry about what will happen.
