Running away rarely solves your problems. It may provide temporary asylum for you and your thoughts but in the end, you will have to confront your problems. Additionally, you may believe that if you move to a different country or state that you can ascend your dilemma and find happiness.
In truth, no matter where you go, your problems will follow you as persistently as your shadow. A search for happiness in the external world is a search without end. True content can only be found within your self and that can only be done if you are free from regret, guilt, and fear. And running away makes realizing this very difficut.
