As a child, I retreated into my own little world. I’m not sure why but I was comfortable in my own space. I was happy there.
We all have issues, but however we get to sort our issues out, they need to be solved and we need to be instrumental in solving them. Often, we ignore that our issues require solutions, or need clarification.
As children, we’re not equipped, but as adults we are expected to problem solve, whether we’re equipped or not. Instinctively we know, the biggest problem for many of us is the application. The problem is our perspective and where we are in our head space. We need time to think.
When we’re in a good head space we are capable of working things out that we fail to accomplish at other times. Running away will make us feel empowered, if only for a finite time, because we’re actively choosing not to focus on the present. When we don’t have to think of what’s going on in the here and now that helps.
Our problems don’t exist in the place we’ve arrived at, while we’re ignoring them. We have a new focus. We feel good because we’ve temporarily made it that way. But inevitably we will begin to trip up, first on the little things, then eventually on the bigger things, until the bigger things can no longer be ignored.
