Sometimes I get this impulse to set everything on fire (figuratively--definitely not literally) and walk away from my life completely. I just want to go someplace new and start all over again, watch my life take shape in a place where no one knows me, where no one has any preconceived notions about me or pre-existing judgment. Someplace where I have complete freedom to be myself, do whatever I want, and ignore all the rules we're told to follow.
I know this impulse comes from the fact that I want to stop following all the rules but am too afraid to. I think somehow that if I can get away from my current life, maybe the rules will matter less. If I'm not the same person anymore, maybe I won't care. I know that's not true, but that's still the impulse.
Do you ever feel like this? Do you ever wish you could just walk out on your life and start somewhere completely new, as a completely new person?
