I’m a 20 year old female from North Alabama and I’ve been considering living in the wild for a few years. What’s stopped me is fear of being hurt or taken advantage of but at this point I’ve become completely drained by life in society, I feel as though most people I come into contact with go out of their way to try and make me feel bad or dump their negativity onto me. I would love to experience living off the land and meeting people who have more appreciation for life and happiness than just material things and social status. Most of all I’m looking for a companion or group of people who would want to travel with me/help each other survive and maybe find somewhere to settle down in a small community. I have minimal knowledge and skills to survive in the wild and obtain food which is why I haven’t set out on my own yet. I would love to learn though and I’m not afraid of hard work. I feel a strong drive to go out and find others who live away from the toxicity of modern civilization, I believe this is my last chance at finding my place in the world and being at peace with myself and my surroundings. I have a history of depression and suicidal thoughts and I think it has everything to do with my environment. I don’t have much money  at all but if someone would take me in I could contribute anyway I needed to to benefit everyone involved. If anyone would like to contact me and talk further about anything you can email me hannahmwilliams19@hotmail.com

I don’t have a preference as to where it is or where you want to go, anything is open to consideration and I don’t mind traveling a long distance, although I don’t have much money.
