Would you be here if you had one?

At least its a step up from feeling suicidal, I guess. I just want to run away from this life. From a job that means nothing to me. From a wife who I'm not sure if I love any more. From a life that just feels so small. All I can think about is disappearing - taking a bag of gear and some money, and just walking away. But once I get tired of walking, what then?

Travel - to a place where life is totally different from where you are. Might recharge your mental batteries.

I want to say, "No. Don't give up!!!" But it's hard to give someone advice like that when all you think about doing is giving up. I will, however, tell you that there is hope. I've said to myself time and time again that hope doesn't exist, that things will only get worse---but here I am, awake and alive another day. If I didn't think that my life could change for the better, I wouldn't be here right now, typing a shitty response to you, would I? :)

i feel the same way, i feel so alone sometimes people are around me but i feel as they do not actually care or they stop caring at some point

Focus less on feelings. Jeremiah 17.9: 'The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?' You are very lucky to have a job to cover your living expenses and also to have a spouse. Proverbs 18.22 reads: 'Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.' You made a covenant with your wife which you have a responsibility to honour. True love is not feelings based, but consists of the traits from 1 Corinthians chapter 13, e.g. patience, kindness, hope, trust, endurance etc. Study the Bible and pray, focus on Christ and eternal things.

I want to runaway too. I feel like my family and my loved one doesn't love me at all. I feel so alone. Sometimes I just want to disappear or move away from everyone who doesn't care about me. Life is so complicated when I feel like there is no one to talk to.
