Please ReadThe name of this group says it all: I want to run away. I've had it with my family, I've had it with this perfect little suburban bubble they live in, but mostly, I'm done with them. There's been a lot of friction between me and my parents over who gets to control my life, so I thought I'd call their bluff and see how much I really need them. I am making all the preparations I need to leave home, and plan on leaving within a week or so. I still have to finish high school, and after leeching off my friends for a while I'll need my own place funded completely by my own wages.
It's a difficult task, and although it is sparked by emotion, I think it would be best for me to follow this impulse instead of overthinking it until I decide against it. I've always been one for change, and frankly, my life could use some right now.
