Based on research and clinical exposures, there is a close correlation between mental illness and "running away from one's self." Instead of facing one's personal issues, some run away by "medicating" their pain through alcohol, drugs, sex, overspending etc. Then they realize the relief is just temporary and superficial and the misery goes on. The wounds grow deeper. Damage gets heavier. The truth is, you can't run away from your self. It follows you ... wherever.
