Running scared. We run, because we think we can’t cope, that we won’t cope. We feel intimated, panicked, as if we’re fleeing, giving up.
We don’t think about our problems in any great detail. We don’t think about or equate that our problems need solutions, or that they need clarification. In our mind, not everything we deal with needs to be solved.
We don’t equate or consciously think about how much energy we will need to work through our problems, but mentally running means we will start to trip up. When we run from our problems, we run from ourselves.
But problems don’t just disappear because we run from them. We run away from problems every day because we think we don’t possess the perspective we need to find solutions, so we take the easy way out.
Running away isn’t just a physical thing. The act of mentally running is hard. Where others may view running as the weaker impulse, it’s not. We must think about the person we can become.
We must find a way to work through our shortcomings, so that we can overcome them. Running isn’t the answer.
