Somewhere for A Fresh Start…or You Already Have One?

Finding solace from running away could be the best thing. I guess…It depends. I don’t have any at the moment, just because I don’t really look for a particular place as my great escape plan.

We tend to overlook things or places for us to run away from things we want to avoid temporarily. It’s like longing for a place that is projected as the perfect one, the one that won’t disappoint. The fact is, it’s impossible to find one.

Well, let’s just say, I can project or imagine what kind of place I would like to go, every time the world seems to push you down to the point, where it seems overwhelming. Then maybe I can do that, though I won’t name one.

Can your own room be the place?

Or your parent’s house?

Or your workplace?

Or even just a park near your home?

Maybe a neighbouring country?

Again, this is the hardest one to think of. Mainly because I don’t have any. Well except my room, anyway. Because it’s probably the comfiest and the only place where I can separate myself from outside world without having to pay for the transport.

The outside world seems kind of scary and full of scrutinies, sometimes. Especially during this pandemic. I don’t know. 2020 does some damage that at one point being outside won’t bring any benefit. Being outside at a certain point can spark a heated conversation of who is being right and who is being an idiot.

Probably one of Kanye’s songs that I can tolerate. It’s a good song anyway, you should listen to the uncensored one.

But running away to a reality or from a social media is actually the place you might have overlooked for so long, that it’s actually already there waiting for you.

I guess this entry just has too many “I don’t know”s that it’s probably the main theme instead of addressing the challenge. I don’t know…


N.B.: Does the last one count as one more “I don’t know”?
