Can we discuss running and why survivors feel the need to run? Maybe survivors can chime in...

What is it that causes survivors to run away from loving, healthy relationships and love, and turn to self destructive behavior (ie: drinking, drugs, promiscuity, unhealthy relationships). Is it because they truly feel that they do not deserve love? Is it that they are trying to punish themselves? Why do they fool themselves into thinking that the things they run to will help ease their pain? Is dealing with and facing their issues so much worse than self destructing?

Can any survivors tell me what finally made them stop running and face their fears/demons?

I am just so lost and alone - When you see someone you love so much throw everything away in an instant - without much thought.

Is the need to run so strong that it blinds reality.

Any thoughts?
