Imagine if you ran away and still the problem is same where ever on earth you go then what will you do? An old man said "Erasers are made for those who make mistakes". A youth replied "Erasers are made for those who are willing to CORRECT their mistakes" So ATTITUDE MATTERS.
The grass isn't always greener. Sometimes there's no grass at all. Whatever you're running from doesn't stay behind. It stays with you emotionally, so it's best to deal with it head on. Your "happily ever after" will come if you're happy with yourself.
No. You do whatever it is that your heart desires. It is up to you to find your happily ever after, wherever it may be. And don't let anyone get in your way, tell you what to do, dissuade you. It's your life, your choice, your decision. Decide what you feel is right for you and do it. If love is in another continent, go there. Find it and be happy. If it's in another state, go there and be happy. If it's around the corner, down the street or right next door, go there and be happy. And all the best of luck to you.
How about visiting a relative that lives in another state? While you're there write a journal about everything that's happened and how you feel. It could even be a short story where you are the main character. Make up the end of the story and make it positive and happy, how you would like it to end. Take some lessons, art, music, dance, photography, a foreign language. Read a book. It's like traveling for your mind. If you do decide to go abroad please be smart about it. Too many American girls "disappear" overseas. Be safe.
