We can’t outrun problems.
Many people seem to think they can solve their problems by running away from them. They often move to another town or state to escape from some situation. Unless there are people involved who are only interested in creating mayhem in your life this doesn’t work. Even then, many times the individuals who are intent on making your life miserable will still hunt you down, or someone just like them will take their place in your life.
If we are being bullied, the only solution is to deal with the bully, run and someone else will just take his place and make your life miserable until you learn to deal with it.
Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know, nothing ever really attacks us except our own confusion.
If we run as fast as we can to the ends of the earth, the problem will be there waiting for us when we arrive.
It just keeps returning with a new name until we learn whatever it has to teach us that we need to know.
The only way to solve a problem is to face up to it, and deal with it, then the issue will finally be resolved and we can go on with our lives.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.
