When someone vanishes – of course, of an adult not a child, the question the authorities first ask is if the disappearance was voluntary.
As you know, it’s suprising just how many people suddenly decide not to go back home and start a whole new life, take on a whole new existence. Usually it’s because of marital, financial problems, emotional problem, depression , whatever the circumstances, it’s a pretty cowardly way out buh it does happen.
However, it’s not easy to determine which is which because as we have voluntary disappearance, some aren’t voluntary, some involve foul play. When a person voluntarily disappear, the person might not be able to face whatever it is that’s troubling him or her for another day. This kind of disappearance is really a cry for help
Some people run away because of violence in the family. For anyone to runaway from home is simply a bad idea. To begin with, it does not solve anything in the end.
People run away for many reasons, running away doesn’t teach you to grow as a person. It doesn’t teach resilience or perseverance, or strength, which are all important qualities in life.
Wouldn’t life be too easy if solving problems meant you could simply get into the road or hop on a bus and leave? It doesn’t take long to realise that emotional ties run deeper than that. When you’re the person who runs away; you’re never fully present anywhere.
People run away for many reasons and probably none are any good reasons to do so. Why not challenge yourself to stay. Leaving is comfortable, but staying is the challenge.
