    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Wondering if any of you Fooster (husbands/boyfreinds) ever feel like just walking away from everything?
    EDIT: Id appreciate the wives/girlfreinds replies too.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Well, I'm not married, so I can't help you there, but I do live with a hyperactive ADHD 6 year old that is the equivelent of about 10 normal 6 year olds, and yes, I do feel like walking away from it. So I ride instead. But for some reason, I come back.....go figure.

    Good for you, Hickey for your strength.

    Yes, I feel like walking out of work sometimes. But I don't because I am what makes my work environment. If I give up then it shows that I am not strong or have control of the situation. So I stay and get things back in order. I have to. I have to do it for me.

    No, I never feel like walking.

    I feel like running sometimes though. If I walked...they might catch me.

    EVERYDAY .... then I go out with another woman and the gf doesnt bother me at all. And being in a good mood myself puts her in a good mood too. So I guess if I could just be in a good mood all the time then she would be in one too; but I reserve the right to be a cranky *******.

    If its too hard just leave. A relationship shouldn't be HARD, if its DIFFICULT youre doing it wrong. Contrary to what everyone else says

    I am assuming there are no kids.

    Your assumption is incorrect, but they are grown but after 25 years of good times I cant see why so little would upset us so much? (and so frequently lately?)

    I am a mom and a wife.

    There are days when I want to walk to the bus stop, hop buses until I get to the airport, fly to Australia, and stay there. There are days when I want to sign up for that 80-hour workweek and immerse myself in my little ambulance world (EMT/dispatcher). I have had days, back when my little one was younger and I was battling depression, when I wanted to dive down to the bottom of a vodka bottle and never come up for air. (I didn't; drinking and nursing don't mix)


    By opening the door to my peaceful, happy marriage and my beautiful daughter, I closed the doors on some of the other paths I could have taken. I gained a lot, but I also lost a little and I still think about that loss sometimes.

    Sometimes one needs that distance and separation in which to find that peace but that peace will always be found within, not without.

    I waited far too long but then again, if I had not waited I might not be in the place I am now... and that place is a good one.

    I'd like to walk away from my life sometimes and be somewhere peaceful like a rainforest.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Yes, pretty much everyday. The reasons change constantly but these are the most common:

    - I feel unappreciated.
    - All I do is never enough.
    - Nobody pays attention to what I have to say.
    - Kinkyness levels sometimes goes down dramatically for extended periods of time.
    - Constant arguments about how to manage the finance department.

    Thats^^^^^EXACTLY how it is for me 60% of the time....well except the last one on the list. Im not saying Im the "perfect guy" I know I suck at a lot of things, as does she, but I dont treat her the way she treats me! (maybe thats the problem?!) women love the "bad boy." Maybe I should go back to my "bad boy" ways?

    In my case my SO did the walking but it turned out to be the best for both of us. If things just start to become tolerable and your staying for the kids, don't. It is better for everyone to move on. Now my problems are more about too many women, which like having too much money is generally a good problem to have but can still be complicated
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    Yes, yes, and yes. Ever feel like you're the one putting all the effort into a relationship and getting nothing in response? So i said "screw her", she knows i'm the kind of guy you settle down with (she said as much, i'm far from being a bad boy) but apparently after 3 years, she doesn't want that anymore. So....yeah, its been two days since I last talked to her, and i've blocked her AIM and deleted her phone number. Its hard to get started, but you've just got to set your mind to it.

    I signed up for the whole package. Good and bad, they are my family. Yeah, sometimes I wanna walk out the door and back to the life I led in my 20's. But this does not happen often and I learn so much about myself and how I can be a better human being from my wife and kids.

    I have found that often, I am the source of the problem, not them, and that by correcting my behavior, their behavior improves exponentially.

    Like anything else in your life, you get out of it only what you are willing to put into it.

    I am sorry that you seem to be having rough times right now. Do you have male role models or mentors that you can turn to to talk about your feelings, seek advice, etc? If not, try to find someone. Holding it in is not healthy and will only make things worse.

    I walked away.

    I have been walked away from.

    The former was easy, and the latter hurt like hell.

    If you need a breather, then find a moment to take one. If you need your freedom, then that is a different thing altogether.

    For the majority of people, the need isn't to walk away, it is to take a break, and it may just be a moment, or an hour, or a day. But whan you take that break, relax completely and rejuvenate.

    Us too!

    [Loosely related, stay with me] I was getting stressed with this one gig that was paying way, way too little for what I was working and I wasn't getting work done on my dissertation. I made the decision to quit and a lot of my stress disappeared - just the thought of leaving relieved most of it. I realized I was spending too much energy on it and restructured my time to give myself more of me time and dissertation time, while getting the work done that I needed to.

    Sounds like you may need some 'you' time. Weekend away with friends, a drive, a long ride, etc... Something to recharge the batteries.
