Have you ever just wanted to quit working, stop hanging out with your friends, isolate yourself from everyone that knows you just so you can take the time to think about life and what you want out of it? I want time to get my priorities straight, time to develop a plan on becoming the person I want to be, time to become that person before I have to face the real world with all it's frustrations and all of people's pre-conceived notions about me. I get so distracted by falling into old habits when I'm around certain people or doing certain things. I just want to hibernate for awhile and emerge as the person with the life I envision. But alas, this cannot happen. There are bills to pay, friendships to maintain, things to do...so I will navigate this process without a self-imposed retreat from life as I know that most people must do. Only very few of us can afford to take a break from everything in their lives and most of us must make changes while still battling the everyday hardships. Which I suppose in the end, will make us stronger. After all, if we got a break from it all and then had to face it all at once, we most surely would fail again anyway.
