Why are we all running the proverbial rat race ?? Why would we rather be busy round the clock than have sometime to pause and think about what is it that we really want.. We’re perpetually on the move it gives us an excuse ( a rather brilliant one at that) to not face our fears, our anxieties or even face our own selves.. For if we were ever to pause it would give us time to think,contemplate or even reflect.. which is something we’d rather procrastinate over… We don our masks and keep running.. to earn moolah,success, get famous,find love or chase some ephemeral dream or the other.. We bend backwards over to please people in the workplace ,it’s another matter in the process we end up hurting those who really matter to us…we take our loved ones for granted, they are at the receiving end of all our raving and ranting..we trample over feelings and yet keep running…we lose our sleep,our peace of mind and sometimes even the core of our existence…yet we keep running… What is it that we are chasing ? Why don’t we ever have the courage to introspect and do some soul-searching ? That would mean asking some hard questions to oneself and those around us…Who wants to do that ? Sometimes I feel we’re not running to chase something rather we’re running away from ourselves to avoid facing how we feel..
