There's No Where to Hide
(Wednesday August 18th 2010)There was no one around and all I could hear was my heart beat. All of my senses told me that I was in trouble, but the danger hadn't reached me yet. A hand reaches for my shoulder and I fall down in fright. Before me is the walking dead, but I have no control over my limbs. Run! That's all I can think to do. A bicycle comes into my view and I hop on immediately. I ride and ride fast, hoping I won't be caught in its grasp. For miles I run, never thinking to turn around and face my fears. I continue to run...
"Dreams of being chased or chase dreams, often stem from feelings of anxiety in your walking life - you want to escape from something. The way we respond to anxiety, stress and situations in real life is typically manifested as a chase dream. Running is an instinctive response to physical threats in our environment. Often in these chase dream scenarios, you are being pursued by some attacker, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. You are running away, hiding, or trying to outwit your pursuer. Chase dreams may represent your way of coping with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting these situations, are you running from them? Ask yourself, "Who is the one chasing me? Why am I running from them?" The answers might surprise you."
A website I visited gave me some information on the subject and made it clear to me that I am not so good at leaving things behind. I would say I am able to get over things easily, but that wouldn't be true.
Dreaming of being chased, has nothing to do your ability to survive. It has everything to do with the person running. I left home for college because I believed getting away would grant me the opportunity to be me. I plan on leaving again to do the exact same thing...
