Escape...

Sometimes I find myself in the crossroads of my life. I don’t want to get stuck in the monotonous life. I just want to escape, to escape the way I feel and all the confusion that’s in my head, I want to walk away and forget how I feel and just be free from it all...

But I know I can’t, because there is NO escape from myself!!!

Every day right from the moment I get up, I am either chasing some goal or trying to escape some responsibility; either fighting my past or struggling to shape my future.
When bad stuff happens to me, I often get discouraged, screaming inside myself saying, “why me?” I am tired of living as a debt slave. I feel like a puppet that can see his strings. I want to escape from all this.

Sometimes I am in collision with solitude, in search of myself inside my own senses.
Sometimes the space invites me upwards and a dismal shadow tries to take me to my past from which I am always trying to escape.

But I know I can’t, because there is NO escape from myself!!!

For years I have thought of escaping from myself, but in the process I found out that it’s actually the dysfunctional society that’s poisoning us both physically and emotionally which I want to escape from. I hate living in a society that is so judgemental and conformist, a society where money and greed overwhelm the need for love and peace among us.

Excellent post. Seeing so much good philosophy this time. I read somewhere that the very social extrovert people doing something all the time do it to escape themselves. Each person seems to do something to escape himself. Only the philosopher chooses to come to terms with himself.

The statement of truth does not change by the number of people following it.
You have touched upon a very deep thought that all have but only a few deal with...

@ Rajlakshmi

Good to hear that you liked my post Rajlakshmi.
I very much agree with you, that there is definitely no escape from the routine set up by the society.
And in reality, if we tend to do so then we are bound to be an outcast.

Mahesh Kalaal said...

yes, though we want to escape the nature's rules does not permit to do so as it keeps proving that struggle/survive or perish....
And it is a naked fact that we finally realize that we are part inn the making of so called evil society, voluntarily or involuntarily....
nice post with some thought intriguing sociological parameters

Nice post, well written. As everyone said, no escape from ourselves!!
Thanks for dropping by my blog!!

Saro said...

When I read the post i didn't think that you wanted to escape yourself, like you led us believe at the start. It seemed to be that you wanted to escape this society that we've created, filled with function and not enough heart.

So what are you waiting for? Pay off those debts, both in cash and in emotions and move. You'll be surprised at how different you feel about yourself once you've done all these things that you've always wanted to :)

All the luck for BATOM 10

I wont agree with you on this one...most of it is, but not all.

And aren't you yourself being judgmental when you say that the society we live in is judgmental??

nice way of writing...honest post!!

Karthik said...

Rightly said. We can't escape ourselves, no matter what how hard we try. But on the contrary, why do we need to? We've got to deal with it.
Very well expressed.
All the best for batom!

evanescentthoughts said...

True.. very true.. we try to escape but it is not always possible to escape. Liked your take on this topic.

Romeo Das said...

@ swayambhu

Firstly I would like to thank you for visiting my blog.

Secondly, I have just penned down my thoughts about what I personally feel, and if you think I am being judgmental by calling the society judgmental, then I must say that its you too, who is being judgmental by calling me judgmental.

You see, we cant help it. We are also a part of the society.
