    I Ran Away From Home As a Youn...

    I ran away from home as a young sprout, back in the 70s.  I didn't then and don't now see that I had any choice.

    Since Fifteen I Have Ran, Everywhere You Can Run....so Let's Run

    Whenever I'm confronted with an uncomfortable situation...my instinct is usually to run away from it. Just drop it and dash. Sever ties, no good-byes, get the **** out of there. I drop communication with whatever is bothering me and seclude myself until I feel like it's safe...

    Sometimes Easier Than Facing Them

    there are some problems where its just easier to run away from them....but it always seems that they are the ones which haunt you, and never leave you alone...yet it feels right to just keep on running.....why face something that you dotn want to?

    Running For Potential Failures

    When I an in uncertain situations, such as a new job responsibility/assignment, I feel a very strong urge to run away from them and instead read silly books or watch movies.  I hate to let people down or be wrong, it makes me feel so bad that I instead just call in sick or 'work...

    Drop The Hot Potato And Sprint In The Opposite Direction.

    That's basically the motto of my emotional life. I can deal with physical, professional and academic issues but not emotions. They kill me. The last time I dropped a hot potato was about 2 months ago when I saw the true colors of my friend on a trip to Vegas. After that I cut off...

    Wish They Could Find Me...

    When I get into a confrontation I generally shut down, run, and hide. As I get older, the distance I run gets farther. I am now thousands of miles away from my problems, but then again here they are and I still have to face myself. I used to have soo many friends, a social...

    Ignore It And It Will Go Away

    After a bullying incident I skipped school for a whole year before my teacher or my parents realized I was doing it. I like to run away. It feels good. One time I ran so fast out the school and into the road that I was hit by a oncoming car. I just got up and kept running.

    Just Accept It And Move Along.

    I have always ran away with a problem is brought about, but I have learned that running away doesn't make that problem go away. No matter how far you run the problem will always pop up again. I have to think for a minute about what would have happened if I would have stayed...

    Bridge Burner

    I have a special talent for disappearing.  I can vanish in plain sight.  My first instinct, as a Scorpio, is usually to lash out with my sometimes vicious tongue.  But other times I cower.  And wilt.  And, in these times, I run.  And I hide. ...
