Fight or Flight

Take my hand
Hold it tight
Don’t let go
Without putting up a fight

afrah-358666-unsplashWe all learned about survival of the fittest while in school. The concept is very simple if you need a reminder. Basically those (creatures) who can adapt the quickest make it to the next round of this stimulation we call life.

One step in the process is the survivor’s ability to asset when to fight or flee. In social policy classes we coined this as being a mover or stayer. At some point we are all one or the other.

But what happens when you apply this to yourself and your relationships? You might notice you are looking for ‘that person’ in every one you meet. And you can’t let go emotionally or physically from her.

In layman terms… you are stagnant. Stuck in a mental purgatory until you address your issues. Issues that everyone can see but you are afraid to acknowledge.

You are no longer surviving is my point… you are just… there.
