Running away from something is an action that I’m convinced every single person has done during their lifetime. We procrastinate, ignore, deny, disassociate, and just plain out avoid things we don’t feel adequate enough to face head on. Yet, all these methods don’t solve the problems. One of the things I’ve learned is that fear of something in the present or the future can cause us to run away. The term doesn’t always indicate distance in a geographical way, but rather a deliberate effort to avoid that which would be uncomfortable. Running away can be a solution but sometimes people spend their entire lives on the run until they forget what they’ve been running from. This in itself can be problematic because you can’t grow from what you refuse to confront. Additionally, a life of avoidance will catch up with you in one way or another.
