I want to move miles away to get away from my family as well as my ex husband and his family.I have had enough of people sticking their nose in where it is not wanted.At the moment we can not move as we can not afford to as the children are still young,but if i inherit alot of money or win some i am ogoing with the kids.

Hello Jugs. Yes, I certainly understand what you are saying. Things get pretty frustrating some times in life. I wish you happiness ! I also want to move a way some times. In my case, it is mainly because of the severe weather conditions in the winter time. I would much prefer to live in a place where the weather is much milder and pleasant throughout the year.

In my case, I don't really want to permanently move miles away. Whenever I have big problems, I just want to go somewhere...many miles away. This way, I could think better. If I'm going away to intentionally not see somebody, that is my way of determining whether I really wanted not to see the person any longer.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, CHECK PRICES IN A DIFFERENT STATE FOR LIVING, SEE IF YOU CAN GET GOV, HOUSING HELP AND GET THE HEL! OUT. IN FLORIDA WEST COAST IN PORT CHARLOTTE YOU CAN RENT A 3 BEDROOM HOME FOR 500 PER MONTH 6 MILES FROM THE BEACH, WITH COMMUNITY POOL, GYM, ETC. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE MESSAGE ME. BUT TO PUT UP WITH THAT NONSENSE IS CRAZY ALSO YOU CAN WALK TO THE MARKET, PIZZA PLACE, HAIR DRESSER, CHINESE FOOD PLACE, IT'S GOD'S little secret here, no traffic except in season which is the winter months, the malls are 8 miles away everything within 10 minutes, SWEET.

hijugsjugs wellwhen my son first lost his job the friend on the net had been so supportive and said she would stake us to three months rent on an apartment in Antioch Ca which was way up north and we trusted her when we should not have, so we got already and were trying to get someone to move our stuff, and the very last moment my son contacted the apartment manager and found that friend was a fairweather friend,she had phoned the manager and told him to tear up the agreement hence we were then made homeless. well I am here now at GoldCrest and my son ,still out of work, is in a gov.sponsored apt. with three other men so they have a place to live while he looks for work. So like you if I inherited a lot of money we would move into an apartment someplace where he could work more easily. this retirement center is not a bad place but it is not home.But I am again on the net so that is good, and my son comes to see me often too. I wish that your family would not keep sticking their noses into your business jugsjugs, and you would feel more at peace.

I want to move eversince, I want to live in a peaceful place but it requires a bigger amount of money to do that. Maybe someday I can do that when I will be retiring. I want to transfer in a place where I can live without even thinking about yesterday, like living like it is your last. Of course, my family is with me. I want to be free from problems.

well I know what you mean and sometimes moves do have to happen and should not wait for lotto winnings. Just plan, save and do it.

Oh that is a bad situation you are in now. I wish you get some big money soon, though there is no need to move miles. You are posting many interesting discussions on a single day, that is amazing, hats off.

Yah, there are times that I really what to go miles away specially if the people around me is making me sick. I just want to be somewhere else so that they wont have the chance to make me feel bad. In your case, I think that is the best thing to do but as you've said you don't have enough money yet so wait for the right time in the mean time just ignore them they will get tired soon. Good luck jugs! I knopw you can do it!

I had recently set out on a plan to meet someone and move where ever they lived and live there. I haven't met that person and have sense put the idea away. Atleast for awhile. I had also thought afew years that I would travel to Ireland and see so many ancient and interesting places I would never want to return home.

I do not blame you one bit. I feel like this alot of times too and want to move away so badly at times. I cannot do it either due to the financial situation either. I heard that we can run but we cannot hide and I think that is true also. It will follow us somehow. It is sickening.

To flee away is not the best solution. I'm curious why people stick their nose on you not someone else. You should think about it more and figure out what's the root cause. It's your doing something wrong made yourself misunderstand then be misjudged or something else. Figure out the root cause and deal with it, then you don't need to move away at all.

I have moved away twice...The first time was from Brisbane o Rockhampton which is a good 800kms (approx 400miles) away from home. I was 18, going to Univerity & loving living so far away from home. The second time was back in 2004 hubby & I moved from Brisbane to Mackay which is 1000kms (500 miles) away...both of my parents lived in Brisbane (now just my dad as I lost my mom but that's another story)... Then back on October last year, we moved to the Sunshine Coast which is 800 kms from Mackay but still about 100kms from my dad. I don't mind moving away as there is always letters, emails & phone & no one - especially nosey Aunts to stick their noses in where they're not wanted.

I have actually done this twice. First I moved from NY to Florida after my divorce with my 2 small children. then 3 years later I moved us all to North Carolina. My job kept offering me promotions to help them open other offices. I think living in different areas lets you grow as a person and to experience other things. Have faith - you will do just fine if you relocate.

I had moved 1000 miles about five years ago. I had met my husband online and had came out to Idaho to visit his. I had fallen head over heels for him and moved out here. I had money saved up in case I decided to move here. I am so glad that I met my husband online and am glad that I took the plunge and moved.

I've wanted to move miles away also because of nosy family members. They can't seem to stay out of my life. I live with my boyfriend and they think that I'm an abomination in doing so. I know they've done a lot worse than I have but nonetheless, they take pleasure in trying to talk crap about me and my life.

yes when i get annoyed with my family i would love to spirit myself far far away. in fact when i was living far away as a student my relationship with my parents was super. as they say in a chinese proverb, things that are close together rub and cause friction. familiarity breeds contempt. but i guess i have to continue to learn how i can honour my parents. and perhaps wait for the opportunity when my husband goes overseas on a job posting and i have a legitimate escape.

I've never wanted to move. I lived in Arizona for a while because my husband was working there, but I kept up my apartment, because I knew I'd come back here eventually. We ende up coming back to Canada together, and my husband prefers is up here, so we decided to stay. I love it here, and it's great to live in my home town.
