I have a lot of money coming my way. A lease I can get out of at any time. A
job I can take with me anywhere.
I've lived in the same area for a decade of my life, total. My parents are here and so are my siblings and the guy I love and my best friends.
For a while I got excited by the idea of finding someone long term and cooking and cleaning for him and getting older near all the people I love.. but lately I just can't get in that headspace.
The only thing that makes me happy right now is the thought of getting in the car and going off somewhere it's just me for a while. The idea of getting behind the wheel and just driving til I'm far away from here literally gives me butterflies right now.
Should I do it? Where should I go? Do you ever wish you could just get away for a while or for forever?

I was there. basically you are dissatisfied with where you are. probably isn't the people around you, just you aren't feeling good about you and where you are... right? So running away... it will follow you:)
But hey, why not... really get comfy with yourself, go life life and get away. it will feel good. I did.

The idea sounds exciting and potentially picturesque but in actual reality, runaways are targets to be kidnapped or sex trafficked because they put themselves in a situation where they may not have a place to stay and they don’t have a support system with them. Runnaways and lone women who aimlessly wonder are targets for people who have malicious motivations.
Now, moving away and leaving the nest at your age WITH A PLAN is an excellent idea! It will be great for your personal growth. But what I recommend doing is swallowing your pride, biting your tongue, and making sure you have an apartment set up for yourself before you leave in an area that you like and have done research on. If you have “a lot” of money coming your way then perhaps you have enough for a road trip where you can just get a while later and still have enough left over to move yourself out to a city you enjoy. Or maybe depending on if you’re in college, what you need is three or four vacations where you get the hell away from your living situation, come back to stay for a week or two, then go on the next adventure.
Whatever you choose, it’s absolutely imperative that you have a plan so that you use your money wisely and don’t have to worry about getting involved in an unsafe mess.
