Does anyone ever think about just picking up and leaving?

Does anyone else just think about just buying a one way plane ticket to anywhere and just going. Just leaving everyone behind without saying goodbye and just starting over. Somewhere new. Somewhere fresh. Somewhere with adventure and danger and struggles that actually matter, rather than the day to day bullshit we have to deal with. Or am I just insane hahahah. Let me know.

I frequently wish to escape.. and I intend to when I am untied from the grips of the educational system. I’ve told my family and friends about it for that reason, but I would do it with little mention if I could. Just saw the tag “Beginning” when I looked up from that sentence, I think it is a perfect way to describe how I feel about it. A new beginning to something, unlike the sheltered mundane life you have gotten used to, living in the same spot for a large portion of your life (probably) and surrounded by the same faces.

So no.. you’re not just insane, you’re also an adventurer lol

Hey Ellie, do you mind sharing a little bit about your runnin’ away? It’d be awesome to hear how it’s turned out for ya!

I don’t consider it running away, but when something wasn’t working for me somewhere, I moved. It has typically led to better things each time. For example when things went bad for me in California (where I’m from), I moved out to the Midwest kind of on a whim and started over. Things fell apart some years later so I moved to Arizona to stay with my dad and brother and figure things out, then I left again to travel. If people don’t like where they are, leaving is a good idea. You can always come back later.

Its the same here with me! The only thing that keeps me here at the moment is school, since I am hopefully just a few weeks before finally finishing ;)</p><p>Many Friends of mine have their image of a happy and successfull life, which&nbsp; is just not right for me, but they are mostly just to close minded to understand the way I think, so I dont really have anyone to talk about this.

I`d much rather have an adventurous life not always knowing where my next meal is coming from and where I am sleeping, than spending all my time in the same boring way. I just feel like life i too short for that!</p><p> Also seemingly everyone pretends as though as life would last forever, but as this is not the case, why should one not enjoy and do what one wants?</p><p>
I`m sorry for my sometimes confusing way of writing, English is not my mother tongue, but I hope you still get my point. ;)

Say goodbye.  You never know when you’ll be back.

Checkout http://www.helpx.net.  It provides great opportunities to stay all around the world… for the cost of a plane,train or bus ticket.

Who knows… in your travels you just might find something in the world that inspires you to live, to create, to be.
