I need to get out, but I don't know how.

I can't seem to push myself out the door. I've always had the soul of a vagabond. Nothing occupies my mind more, but there's a certain fear that I can't seem to overcome. I need some advice or some help. let go of all

My life hasnt exactly gone to shit, but my happiness has. I hate all the people I know, but I can't seem to let go of them. I hate the way that I'm running my life. Now, I drink too much, smoke even more, and haven't built on a solid relationship in almost a year.

All that I am is slowly wasting away, and I know that hitching would be the perfect reality check, but i can't seem to let go of all I know.

I would really love some advice or motivation to finally just quit fucking with the life I have and start anew. Anything you can offer to get me out the door would be much appreciated.

I understand where your at as i have felt similar for the past five years. Its ok to feel this way. Maybe try to find activities that can help you work twords your goal. Ive spent this time arming myself with knowledge and mashing my own gear etc. field testing everything and learning as many valuable skills as possible. It may take time to bridge the gap but if you slowly work towards it you will have something to feel good about. Work up the courage and see what happens. Remember one can always return home if it's boot what you truly want. Also nothing really, really fucking matters lol.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $85.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $85.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
