What would you do?: A theoretical question

It's nighttime and bitter cold. You're standing on a train station platform, ticket in hand, everything you need by your side in your suitcase. The conductor calls out that the train will be leaving in five minutes. All aboard! Now, you have a life in town outside the train station. Friends, family, money, a job you love, a life you've created with a lot of hard work over time. This life, however, is hardly worth the toils. You are not popular. You work like a dog for little pay. You have few friends and your coworkers ignore you except when work has to be done. The people you love most are never there for you. Despite all of this, you love this life, but you hate what it does to you. Getting on the train will take you away. No more labor. No more being ignored. No more pain. Perhaps you will be missed if you leave. Perhaps you won't. You may get homesick. Getting on the train means throwing your old life away and perhaps starting over, maybe for the better. You don't know. All you know is that your troubles will go far away if you get on board. Last boarding call. Train whistle. Do you get on the train or not?

Get on the train; we have this thing called Skype now and planes. Once I'm all settled in and making money, I can come o back and brag my life away.

I would, my family will call if they miss me and so will my friends. If I have a better opportunity I should go after it, not lets familiarity hold me back. I can always find new friends, hopefully ones that are there for me. If I really wanted I could call/text/talk to then on social media it may not make much of a difference. So why not?
