There used to be a television commercial for a brand of bubble bath. The slogan was, “Calgon, take me away.” The idea was that the bubble bath would take the bather away from life’s problems, if even for a short while. Ah, if only life was so simple.

People use other methods to escape: alcohol, drugs, pornography and other deviances to numb their pain. When the time away ends, the pain remains. Even plastic surgery is used to try to fix something internal, and oftentimes nothing is broken on the outside. The patient just believes there is.

Face life head on. Work on yourself to heal what hurts. No matter your method of escape, you cannot run away from who you are…
