To run away and start again, these are common thoughts. The chance to leave everything behind and make a new life free from that which chains us ,down is a path many would follow, sadly though, they’re living in a dream world.
If you look, you will see these people, there is a distinct pause when they catch your eye followed by a barely noticeable sigh. They smile and laugh while filling their conversations with plentiful words that express how ‘fine’ they are, and still behind the smile they are sad.
Who are these people?
They are your friends, your family, your loved ones. They are those lost souls looking for a place to call home without fear and restriction, a paradise of endless beauty which only they can see.
The act of being happy is one of the hardest to sustain, telling themselves things will be ok becomes an almost unbearable task, eventually they will buckle under the pressure… If they haven’t already.
As time passes days become weeks, weeks become months and months become years, as this happens life goes on, until one day the inevitable happens… they look back and see all their wasted time and missed opportunities.
I guess it’s better to live with the dream rather than wake up and see the nightmare.
