I too wish I could run away from my life, but I just figure wherever I run my life will follow!!! I can't stand where I live and feel like all my neighbors know my problems and look down on me. Not to mention running into people that I am in conflict with is very awkward and painful. Unfortunately I don't have the means to do this. Sometimes I fantasize that I can do it and imagine some beautiful place that is quiet and quaint with new friends that think I am wonderful. Then I think would I really be happy. Being happy and secure is not something I know about. Oh well I'd probably would get homesick.
