    Should I run away from my problems?

    Running away from problems doesn't solve the problem. It just keep you away for a while. But the problem persists. Sometimes running away from problems may raise new problems. So face it and try to solve it.

    It can snowball into a big problem. I always believe in solving problem before it starts to grow into a bigger problem. There is nothing cannot be solved. It is only a matter of how you handle the situation.

    Be calm and clear your mind before looking into the problem. You can solve it when you are calm and clear headed.

    You can run from your problems in most cases, but they will catch up with you. You will have to face them eventually. Sometimes it helps to write your problems down and how you might deal with each one. Then start tackling them!

    Your skeletons will always come back to haunt you, unless you bury them by dealing with them. The problems will always come back to haunt you, especially when you least expect it. Fix the problem first, then run away smile

    Yes; to run away may serve you well. Yet run away only to re-group and confront your problem(s) once again (into the brink). Then face them once again with a fresh heart, mind and if necessary ammunition (yet ammunition to me is insight).

      One of the most common responses during an anxious moment is responding emotionally from your amgydala (within your brain); I use "running away" as a metaphor for a temporary escape from emotionality; collect your thoughts then proceed...

    Depending on the problem, sometimes it helps.

    I will rather suggest you to make the problem run away from you. Its possible always. Do give it a try and you are sure gonna be surprised.
    good question.

    Why should you run away from your problems? If you run away your problems will be there to add to your agony. Go towards your problem and amazingly you will find it no so mountainous as it seemed when you stayed far away from it.

    I think it can be especially difficult to face problems sometimes, and running away and starting a new life just to get away from them might seem more appealing than facing up to them. But even if you do run away from them, they're still going to be there and they'll probably get worse the longer you leave them. Plus, on top of that, if they're still there you're probably always going to worry about them.

    Depends on the problem. An abusive husband, get rid of him. An evil co-worker, face them head on.

    I don’t think you can.  I think a problem is just that, it is a “problem” and until you fix it, whatever that entails, it will remain.  One thing I would certainly recommend would be to look at the problem from every angle.  Sometimes what one would believe to be a fix could really only stand to make the problem worse.  Problems present us with a challenge, but the good thing is that every challenge I have faced has grown the person that I am.  It may have not happened instantly; most often it happened in retrospect as I looked back and realized that there was a lesson hidden in there.  I think that is the best we can do, face the problem, fix it and learn from it so that you aren’t faced with it again.  I wish you luck.
