Sometimes we need to hide. The world seems to be too difficult, too overwhelming and we don't want to handle the stuff that is thrown our way. That sentiment is understandable but in the long run it is not very productive. So after we have taken a little time to catch our breath, we need to pull ourselves together, straighten our back and just deal with it. After all, it has to be done sooner or later!
Don't just read the future; help create it!
