I'm Tired of Running

i've been running from problems for most of my life.
i run when i make a mess.
i run because i have to face the mess.
i run because the mess reflects ugliness in my character.

because of my family situation, i've been able to run from school to school, from continent to continent, from life to life, from friends to friends... from illusion of self to illusion of self.

college is supposed to bring the best years of your life and i want to stop running. i want to be able to face things.

part of growing is to take responsibility for all your actions and things you say.<br />
<br />
as an adult do you want the reputation as a liar....no matter how much it may hurt you or others......always tell the truth...you won't have to tell more lies to cover the first one...etc.....etc.<br />
<br />
i think you are tired of running and ready to make some changes in your life...you have already by sharing this story.<br />
<br />
hope you are happy with your choices...remember....the truth will set you free

it's great that you want to stop running from problems, and that will help you, because if you feel that you don't want to run from them, then you WILL be able to stop yourself, because why do something that you don't want to do? Bare that in mind next time a problem comes up, and instead of running from it, try to solve it, and if there already a mess then next time, try to solve them before they get too much of a mess, it might be easier, but it really is great that you want to stop running, so i think you can do it! :-) xxx
