I wanted to flee. I desired to flee from everyone and everything, even the pressure of selecting a spouse and the notion of finding the ideal match. I wanted to escape the daily struggle I have with myself over what to study, what career to pursue, and whether to work a 9 to 5 corporate job or be an entrepreneur or freelancer. I want to escape my past and my thoughts about the future.
The prospect of failing people, the adoration, and the expectations that came with it made me want to go. Everything was too much for me. I desired to escape my obligations, disagreements, and political discussions. The rumours, the routine turmoil, the boisterous conversations, the honking cars, and all the noise made me want to go.
The horrible news I hear every day made me want to flee. Hearing about the wars, poverty, global warming, and witnessing people struggle every day made me want to flee.
People giving me their sentiments made me want to flee, but I soon realised that I couldn’t do the same for them. I wanted to get away from the thought of the one who escaped. I just wanted to get away from all the tension, screaming, and arguments.
I wanted to go away from paying taxes, paying bills, thinking about how to generate money, and planning for my retirement. The ringing sound of each notice, message, and call made me want to flee.
I desperately wanted to avoid responding to one more email and sending one more SMS. Hearing these tragic tales made me want to flee. I yearned to escape the frantic pace of ordinary life. The lights, the fumes, and the skyscrapers made me want to flee. I wanted to flee the catcalling, smirks, glances, and whistling of the streets.
I want to be away from the fads, rivalries, and contests as well as the quest for justification. The concept of always striving and working made me want to flee.
I yearned to escape everything. And I understood that doing this is precisely what you should do if you feel like you need to get away from it all. You need to have left sooner rather than waiting till you were over everything to decide to do so.
Sometimes everything feels overwhelming and too much, and even the most routine tasks seem like a lot of work to perform because you’ve had enough and need to escape.
So here is what I’ve learnt throughout my life: It’s okay to want to flee, and you should do it if you feel like it. Simply pack your things, go, and flee until you feel like you can return and until you feel like you are again. You may do that. I believe we should make it more of a routine in our lives to just step away from everything for a while when it becomes too much to bear before returning when we feel ready to take on the world once again.
