I did the exact same thing 🙂
I so want to.follow!!
For 2 years Ive wanted to run away from home. Im 40.
I think about leaving every day
I did it too. Then they followed me 🙁
Did the same thing and it was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. I’m proud of my time spent living abroad — it truly shaped me and defines my character today.
I wish I was brave enough to do exactly this!
I want to do the same thing, but I wants wife to come with me because SHE wants too, not just to follow me.
I did the same thing. I lived in Asia for 8 years by myself. I can’t be around my family for more than 2 months without sincerely wanting to kill them all.
I’m 42. I have 3 beautiful children 20…17..15..and an amazing husband….. I am not happy.. I want to move to London and experience life by myself for awhile… I feel so selfish and like a bad mom… I love my family.
Lisa, you’re not selfish at all. I think it more of not being happy with what or who we are because of the knowledge we could be better. Thats not selfish. I’m 47. I have three beautiful kids, 28, 25, and 21. I’ve been married 30 years, and started dating my wife in 10th grade. I love my wife and kids more than anything. I did’nt articulate it very well with all the typos, but that was my point. I want to go experience new asspects of life and be someone different. I would want my wife with me only if she wanted to be someone different, with me. I would not want her to go if she did not embrace the purpose for leaving.
How wonderful and exciting and liberating it would be to make a complete paradigm shift in how we live and experience life than to do it with the one you love.
I did the exact same thing for three years and this year I am going back. I think it was the best decisions I have ever made. It brought me closer to all my friends and family.
I think about it everyday, ever since I came back from studying abroad I look for the way of going away and never have to come back. Good that you did it 🙂
@amy I feel the same way… whats worse is everytime I mention a city name out loud, they start traveling there regularly when they never had before and talk about moving there too … Case in point, I’ve never been the type to be about exposing my absolute number one interests and I wont even fill out a dumb questionnaire or answer a stranger honestly anymore,…. I never reveal my true desires anymore cause I slowly watch them get chalked up to hell and dust… Also, I’m from a big fancy metro (not ny but close) plenty of the people I want to escape are prestigious and travel regularly. I’m also middle eastern and am sheepish about traveling cause no matter what, I know how I’ll always be regarded no matter where I go.. I’m constantly trying to pick somewhere, where acceptance comes easy… and judgement is unheard of..
