Have you Felt like Running Away?

When things don’t turn out right and it seems that everything falls out of place, have you felt like running away from everything? We do all experience the lowest moments in our lives and we feel like as if there is no more escape. We wish that we are just dreaming a bad dream and later on will wake up and things will be all right. But then you realized that bad dreams also happen in reality and you feel like you are choking to death…and you wish to run away from the things that cause your pains and sorrows. I also have my own shares of fill and losing and as human endurance fails at times, I came to a point that I felt like running away. I just want to fly away or just vanish in thin air but not of course to the point of squeezing the air out of me! I am not that crazy enough to do such a thing. Besides, I am a pro-life person! I thought of leaving for a while, pack my things and have some rest or a short vacation but this does not happen, at least only in my dreams. It is not possible to run away because in time you will get back with the same foot and you have to face reality.

There was a time in the past when i felt like that , but this time i want to die . However , with the constant care and prodding of my sister where i went for a vacation , i went to their parayer meeting. That started my very deep relationship with God that made me realize , problems will be solved in due time as long as you are facing it with HIS help.

Yes God takes away all our burden once we give it all to Him and then work on it. Amen.

There are times when I would love to run away from everything, not for a long time, just a week to forget about everything and relax. The late summer is a good time to forget about everything for a few days.

I have felt like that many times over the year. I just went for a nice long walk to relax.

As long as my legs are working, there will never come a day when I cannot run away. I am sorry for whatever is troubling you my friend. Please consider some good things before doing something. But I do not see anything wrong with getting away from it all for a bit like a mini vacations.

When I was younger, running away from anything that made me unhappy was easy. I have ran away from home, from my exs, from friends and so on. I didn't have the capacity to endure adversities. I felt at that time that it was the best thing to do and I guess I was right. These escapes had led me to a better place and a better life. Now that I have kids, I make sure that I don't make decisions that will negatively affect them and make them unhappy... I am very careful this time not to be in a situation where I or my kids would want to run away.

Well physically running away from home I've never thought of at all. I don't get those people who run away, maybe since they can't do anything about it they just opt to run away. But of course in your case I believe God can help. :) Prayer is a good thing when it comes to problems. Prayers and working on the problem. As for me, right now I very badly need to move out of the house though. I need space and I don't like the feeling of getting trapped when helping a family member who does not help themselves. Well at least now he does but then again I feel like I've overstayed long enough. Must move out soon since he can now stand on his own. Hoooh, finally!

Not when I'm home but when I have a horrible work day, I want to run away and never go back there.

Coming from someone whose wish is for this world to vanish in one go, like "BANG!", everything's gone (sorry for being selfish, i don't want to leave of be left) my response might not sound very convincing:P Taking a vacation or something to relax might be a good idea, but not as a way to escape, rather, a way to clear your thoughts, settle your emotions and find enlightenment. As all have been saying, running away is never an option, the least you could do is calm yourself to know how to face reality. That's what i usually do when I'm stressed or feeling down. Go meet friends, eat, shop, take a walk, simple things to clear my thoughts, so when i go back to reality, im pretty much ready coz i just had a great time to balance the bad vibes. Faith is still the best option though, works best for everything.
