Sometimes when problems arise, it is the first instinct to run. Run away from the problem until eventually it goes away. However, a very wise person said “Running away from your problems is a race you will never win.” They are always there and will be there until you face them.
Then how about this? Instead of running AWAY from your problems, run TOWARDS a solution. I mean, heck, you are still running in a metaphorical sense, right? At least, this way, you are making productive use of your time and energy and life is too short to waste either.
