Can you run away from yourself ?

Can you run away from your self ?

β€œNo matter where you go, there you are.” Confucius

It’s a 4.9 minute read.

Can you run away from yourself ?

Of course,you can run away from yourself.Why not ?

It’s awful but possible.

You are the Ultimate,Your decision is final !

Enjoy your wonderful dreamland !

But the tragedy is,wherever you go you carry your ‘I’ with you.

What is that you want to runaway from ?

As a teenager from confusion and sex related matters ?

Because your parents are drunkards ?

From your poor academic activities ?

Are you tired of your relationships ?

Do you want to run away from your job or weak financial status ?

You want to run away because of your poor decision makings ?

You run away because you are childless ? or from marital disputes or because of romantic failure ? Because of daily torture from in laws ?

Do you run away because of your emotional bankruptcy ?

You want to run away because you are bullied at every stage of your life,from your school friends to co workers and even your boss ?

You want to runaway because time and again you feel some thing is missing in your life ?

I can go on and on and problems do come in different shapes and sizes and the problems are really endless.This is the truth of being alive.

Can avoidance,solve your problems ?

I don’t think so.

Even if one dissatisfaction is taken care,the mind is always restless and moves to new set of dissatisfaction.

Everyday life seems to be in a challenging mood !

Why you think,you are the only one in this world with all the problems, while others are enjoying their lives ?

I know my friend.That is what you are thinking,but remember You are not the only one.

Every one you meet in this world has own quota of misery to tell you.It’s just that you are not aware simply because you are immersed in your own so called worries.

We’re all in the same game:Just different levels. Dealing with the same Hell;Just different Devils 😈. Unknown

Why you can’t stop being unhappy all the time ?

There is a very simple philosophical explanation.

Everything we don’t like in our life is nothing but a reflection of ourselves.

We decide….this is to my liking,I hate this,I love this,I expect this etc. all are your own reflections and no blame game here.

If things are not as per your liking then you create demons and nurture them.

Unless you change the very nature of your inner self, these demons are sure to devour you.

I don’t mean you have to adjust yourself and be submissive,instead you should have a willpower to face your problems.

“By running away from the world no one can get peace.Anywhere you go the problems will go with you,because the problems are inside you and not outside. Outside is simply projection of inside” Baba Hari Dass

If you feel you can’t solve the problems…..simply you can’t.

What is the solution ?

Once you feel like running away from yourself……is this not, the time to talk to yourself ?

β€œWe feel that we can hide or run from problems, but we fail to understand that it isn’t the problem we hide or run from, but our capacity to handle that problem. Problems regularly attack due to our vulnerability to the problem; we often look at situation giving us the stress & consider stress as the problem, but stress isn’t the problem, it’s our feeling or understanding of that situation which causes the stress.

We move away, try meditation, take medication & indulge in activities which rejuvenate the brain. hence, the stress goes away. We continue with our lives and after a while the merry feeling goes away too, and we start getting stressed again.

Problems are most vulnerable when it’s in the seed stage, but we water them with our ignorance or lack of attention and one day they become bigger than our expectation & imagination. We can still fight it, but we underestimate our capabilities & keep running away, that process gives it more nutrition to grow even bigger, and since we run away without solving them, they keep following us in new disguises; finally, one day we run out of places to run to and are left with stress, depression, and anxiety.”
Shahenshah Hafeez Khan source-Goodreads.com

My suggestions

1.The problems won’t exist outside.They are inside you.Instead of running away,face them boldly by analyzing the source of your problems and try to solve them.

2.Have faith in yourself

3.Remember there is nothing that you can’t solve.

4.Change your attitude as you face your problems.

‘Don’t runaway from the challenges.Run over them’

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.
