Question of the week #1 - What are you running from at the moment?

What are you running from at the moment?

This is a hard one…

I’d like to say that I’m not running from anything right now, because my life is pretty good. But I think that would be lying to myself. I don’t know if everybody is running from something, but I believe that most of us are. I just think a lot of us (myself included) aren’t honest with ourself about what we are running from.

It takes courage, I think, to admit to your self that you are running form someting. I don’t like not being able to do or face something, and running from something is definitely not facing it. So to admit that there is something I can’t do, is something I’d rather not do. Thats also why this question had me thinking for a long time before I could come to terms with the fact that I’m running from having to confront my feelings about big things in life like school, friendships and relationships.

Even though I’ve admitted to myself that I’m running from these things, I’m still not ready to actually face them. As said earlier my life is pretty good right now, and I’d like to keep it like that for a while.

So even though you might know what you are running from, you don’t have to know how to handle it right away. It’s okay to run for a while, just make sure you don’t run a marathon if you are only capable of half.
