Take the money and run

Anyone who has worked the closing shift at a store has probably experienced it, that feeling of counting up the money and thinking “if I just took the money and ran, how far could I get before anyone found me?”

My mom gave me money for rent and food, and I am once again overcome with that feeling.
The urge to take the money and run, just go somewhere nobody knows me.

I won’t do it, but I wonder… What causes that feeling?

Why does it seem easier to hop on a train to nowhere than face my struggles?

I don’t know where the feeling comes from. Must be a form of escapism. I have this urge myself. I want to empty the bank accounts and disappear into the wilderness.

If you go off the grid you can take the cash and use it as Toilet Paper.

Wherever you go, there you are.

Sorry if that’s a groaner.

In my experience your struggles go with you and/or are waiting for you when you return. Plus, added bonus, you get new struggles.

I guess if you needed to get out of a situation and were committed to growth in a new place that might be promising. There is something to be said about a fresh start I suppose.
