Where do you go when you need to get away from an overwhelming situation?
What do you turn to when you need a time out, a break from something that is zapping your energy and happiness?
Are drugs, alcohol, overeating and sex just a few of the negative things that some people turn to when they are trying to “escape”?
Are family, friends, God, a new or old hobby just some of the positive things that others turn to when they are trying to “escape”?
I am a collector of quotes. I write down those that I find interesting. I saw this one: “Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.” Aldous Huxley
Couple that with an article I read about a mother who did something illegal in order for her child to escape the poverty that they were living in and you will have the reasons behind this post.
Some are hurting, others were hurt by whatever circumstances that they faced. Some in order to escape, created a deeper “hell” than the ones that they were trying to get away from. Others sank deeper not knowing how to get away. Others got away.
What about you? Who or what do you turn to when you need a moment?
