"Be the Change you wish to see in the world" -Gandhi "I will be a Hummingbird, I will do the best that I can." -Wangari Maathai "Where stereotypes begin with a grain of truth, cliches begin with a boulder" - George Watsky "And she's gonna learn, that this life will hit you - hard - in the face - wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach, but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs, how much they like the taste of air." - Sarah Kay "Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded." -Suheir Hammad


Escape is an idea. There is only once solution, that most people in this world are too selfish to even try and obtain and escape from their problems. Usually your problems involve somebody else. Because they are annoying, or they broke your heart, or they backstabbed you. And for the rest of your life, even if you forget about this problem completely because "you're the bigger person" you never really escape it. Everyone once in a while, when a song plays, or when you walk past someone with the same cologne, you remember the person you once were friends with, maybe even closer than that, and you remember why you are no longer speaking.
There is one solution to be offered for your problems. The solution requires absolute sincerity and concentration. You cannot fake the solution, even to fool other people, because the solution is for your own peace of mind, which cannot be fixed if you fake it. You must forgive. If someone is annoying, accept them in your heart. If someone broke your heart, except their apology and do not hold anger towards them. If someone stabbed you in the back, forgive them, and move on.
Here's the catch, if you forgive, this does not mean everything has to go back to the way it was before, and in fact, it most likely will not. The solution entails that in your hearts there is no hate/anger/jealousy/hurt on either side, and you can act like civil human beings without any awkward moments.
But, if you are the author of the crime, do not expect immediate forgiveness. You most likely will not get it, unless it's for something petty. Give them their space, and let them come to you with a clear heart.
Behind forgiveness is the promise of a clear, unburdened heart. A true one. Not one that requires covering up, but one that can float away into the sky, carried by love, because their is no hate to hold it down.
