There are those rough days when strangling someone seems like a good idea, even if the 'someone' has to be yourself. Everything annoys you and everything seems to be going wrong and you seem to be losing control over the situation. What is worse that no one seems to get what you feel and you don't want to bother anyone about the problem because it's your own to deal with.
Well, you have two options:
1) Face it.
2) Run.

Now let us consider both options:
1) Face it-This may not seem like the better option for the weak at heart but if one can make themselves accept that there is a problem to be dealt with maturely, sit down and think it through, take responsibility for one's actions/choices, and act upon the solution, be it seemingly workable or not, then the person can be given a pat on their back. If nothing, at least he/she tried! Give the kid some candy for that! C'mon, people!

2) Run- This is easy, tempting and the absolutely wrong way to go. Run to the kingdom of Far,Far, Away in your mind. Make yourself believe that the problem is not a problem and that it will go away on its own. Try and vent through words, tears, or whatever it takes to get it out of your system (you'd like to believe it's gone for good!) and refuse to think about it once the venting is apparently done. To me, it doesn't seem like the best idea. But then again, I'm not even sure I'm aware of which option I'm considering half the time. (I'm a little lost in my thoughts a little too often)

But the fact remains that when the going gets tough, the tough gets going! And hopefully, everyone will indeed have the strength to deal, to accept, to overcome, when the need may arise.
