Question I feel like I'm going insane! - July 12th 2011, 09:50 PM

I don't know if this is the right category for this but I feel like I'm going insane just staying here all the time I feel like I have to leave. Honestly I REALLY want to just give up, walk away, and become a nomad... But I can't I'm only 14(and a half). I swear everytime I or a friend and I go for a walk near say a dirt road it feels like it calls me (my friend gets it too). The longer I stay here the more frustrated I get. I wish I could leave but my family is on ssdi or something like that and if I didn't go to school they would cut the benefits, plus my parents would NEVER let me do anything like leave, I think leaving would have some great benefits too, I could get closer to God, find myself (I know it sounds sappy), and figure what I want to do in life (like what career and college to go to) I don't know... Anyways what am I supposed to do? Forget everything and leave or stay here 3 more years and go insane?!?

Since you're 14, you've got to stay living at home. However, have you considered making it a habit to go hiking a couple times a week, or be a camp counselor for younger kids, or something else where you can stay in touch with nature?

I sense it is not nature that calls you, but freedom, change, and chaos. The call to chaos summons me from the depths of my society induced trance and drives me to aspire to greater things. It is the call of leaders. The call of those that shape and change the world. You are not insane. You are gifted. Hold onto that feeling.

BUT PROCEED WITH CAUTION. The next steps are vital to deciding if your life ends up a wreck or a work of art to be written about across the ages. Let me start by saying, to run away, or to just leave, that would be foolish. Sadly, despite my utter hatred of the horrific scholastic system all children are subjected to, it is necessary to even be considered for employment. And although I despise the capitalist lies and government oppression we live under and around, we cannot escape such things. Therefore, we need jobs, you and I. So schooling and jobs being necessary to survive, you would do well to acquire those things any way you can in the best way you can.

After you get your feet in this world, make a name for yourself. Find a passion, a drive, and go for it. Go for it and do not give up. Do not stop no matter who or what gets into your way. Use the money you get to stay alive, use the job to get connections and contacts. Use any power you get to gather followers of any kind. Drive your passion, get a fan base, or get buyers to your product, or drive yourself to do what you wish the most out of life. Once you have money, power, and success, there will be nothing to stop any ambition you choose to follow. It takes effort to get what you want. If it was as easy as walking out of the door, don't you think we all would do that? The bums on the streets are, often, those who jumped too soon without the proper supports beneath them, and fell.

Take caution in your life, and drive at your goals with a solid ambition, and you will achieve all you want and more.


Slowly, the people collected, amassing a vast number of bodies before him. And yet still, he waited until there was no point to waiting further. Now was the moment he stalled for not days, not months, but years. Raising his hand to into the air, he summoned fourth a unison cry.

"And let them fear who we have become. Let them wish they were among us. Let them run or submit. And let them know we can not be stopped. For we have become Legion. And we will never die."

T H I S. No one could tell you any better.
By law, you must live with your parents. Just take walks frequently. Nature is always right there, it will never leave just because you're living with your parents. It's a l w a y s right at your feet.



I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe we’ll never know most of them.
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
