One of those mind battles

Have you not at least once in your life thought of just leaving all you have and everyone you know at once, your house, your family, your friends, your job, your country... just leaving without a notice, without a word, without a note, to a place where no one knows you, a place where you have no past, a place where you start anew? Just pack and leave and never return hoping you will be forgotten. Such an immature thought? maybe, but as immature as it might sound as tempting it becomes. It crosses your mind in adolescence and keeps hunting you throughout adulthood. Some did it. They were called cowards by those who lacked the courage. Sometimes, it takes more than a luggage to leave.


  1. it crossed my mind a million times in the past 28 years. i never had the courage, but everything turned out fine, or did it?

    'that same one'

  2. Dear "that same one",
    The idea is tempting even when everything is working out fine, sometimes specifically because of that.
