Go to third world country where nobody knows you and stay there for couple of years.
You will find yourself completely changed, you will see world and life differently you basically will be reborn.
I moved to a third world country, The Philippines, in 2000 and find all of the benefits you mentioned in your post. I was not suicidal but I did need to reflect on what direction I wanted to take in my life.
I joke with my friends that running away from home is not for everyone but it worked for me.
I am now moving back to the U.S. with the family I have created here and am ready for the next phase of my journey.
