It is so easy. To feel like life is a smooth ride and the world is all that it should be. And then to suddenly flip a switch in your mind and feel dragged down by the draining efforts of the things around you. And what do you do in response to these cognitive swings? You run. Because there is no where else to go and the only way to mask these negative thoughts is by putting something more worthwhile in the forefront that will somehow gain ourselves more acceptance. But what do these changes gain long term? Nothing. Because no matter how much we try to fix things, change up our schedule or work the extra hours, we cannot be fulfilled.
