I wanted to talk about this simply because I know about doing such a thing. You do not have to be on the go never wanting to settle down and just keep moving from one place to another. You can run from yourself in so many other ways just by standing still.
Some people never stop running within themselves. It is a compulsion they cannot control, because it controls them. I have been there when something outside of myself controlled me and I hated it. I must admit being able to recognize that in myself has been a real plus for me. I can then honestly take stalk with who I am and what I have become in some ways. This is where a major turning point occurs.
We can use our work to keep us running from ourselves. And think of all the addictions one can have in their lives to run symbolically from themselves. Sometimes it is the pain of knowing the truth that makes us run. Facing our demons is the answer.
My senses are awakened when I am by the ocean.
