    Anyone else ever have an overwhelming urge to just pack up, take what savings they have and start again somewhere far far away?

    If I ever mention it to people they just think ah phooey, you just wanna get away from something here, you don't really want to leave. But I actually do...it's not a rash decision, it's something I find myself planning subconsiously...this place has nothing for me ya know :(

    Anyone else feel this way? :unsure:

    Moved 2600km to a place where I knew no one on August 31. It's great.

    Me and my mother are also thinking about it...
    Or at least new house little away...

    To be decided. I'm no less suicidal here than there, but I'm meeting new people, something I haven't done for years.

    There are times I wish I could walk away and leave it all behind. take nothing with me whatsoever. Then reality comes back.

    Actually, it can be done. It is nice. Everything is gone. Blank slate... My relationships even with the few people I stayed in touch with have drastically changed as well. My mindset is different, my goals are different...

    I'm still lonely, though, but that should pass as I meet new people.

    See now there's a big plus, a clean slate...

    Aoeu, honestly do you think that getting out helped? You say you're still lonely but then moving to a new place, that's to be expected...hopefully should be able to be changed as well...:unsure:

    I was lonely there, I'm lonely here, but I think I'm happier here. I feel that I'm in a much better position to deal with life.

    I felt stuck at home. Stuck in my degree, stuck with friends I don't like - and not many friends at all... Stuck with my family. Now I'm quite a bit freer. Happiness is... foreseeable.

    My life is in no way similar to how it was before. I'm not stuck in who I used to be. I'm whatever I want, now, and I like what I'm becoming.

    >_> But I got offered a really, really sweet job back home next summer.

    I think about it a lot. I would LOVE to live somewhere completely differant. A new country entirely. Of course I still think about visiting the U.K, possibly living there and elsewhere in Europe, and Ive always wanted to live in Japan.

    Massive moves requiring plenty of $$$....I just dont have it.

    I could never escape from myself so it doesn't matter where I am geographically! :sad:

    I have the advantage of having very little in material goods, and also of being in a very big country so I don't have to emigrate to move. I brought everything I need in my wallet, a large travel bag, and my backpack.

    i wouldn't mind moving someone else where there isn't anyone i know and start afresh.

    firstly, i don't have a occupation that can be easily transferred and secondly, some cash to start off.
