ok... i am 18 with 2 kids... my teen yrs were full of running away . ive always been the type to pack up and go, just for new scenery... i feel the need to leave for no reason every day just for a new place, new ppl. theres nothing wrong with my life as it is.
i know that w/ 2 kids i cant do that anymore.
if i sit at home all day my hubby and i fight b/c i get depressed. i have to be on the move all the time to stay content.
i am working so that helps a little...
how do i get over this?!

  • Sometimes you just have to do what is responsible for your children, even if its not what you want or what is easiest for you.

  • I have felt like this often, and I have made a lot of moves just to have a fresh start. I think you should start really thinking about what it is you want to move towards, and then plan for it. This way you're moving to improve your situation and live where and how you would like to live, instead of just picking up and leaving and going toward... something. Anything.

  • It's not about YOU anymore. You chose to have children. Your life is now about them.

  • I might be more interested in why you want to move and always have instead, of where to go. Are you afraid to put down roots or are you really unhappy where ever you land. Or, is it because you aren't planning and waiting to get to the place you really want to be? Like are you just moving to move hoping that will be the "place"? I'd also look into your depression. If you have a history of depression, no matter where you are, it will never give you the happiness you're seeking.

    Then maybe you need some counseling to deal with these feelings!!
