It's interesting to see how easy it is to escape from reality. Just remove yourself from the environment, and your troubles end up miles away.

Out of sight, out of mind.

I know it's not the right thing to do. You should face it, deal with it. But how? If you know you don't have much power to change anything, what's the point of helplessly worrying? Perhaps I'm too weak, I want to avoid that unpleasant emotional burden which blankets and suffocates. I see it in their faces, every crevice of their worry lines, every sigh and heavy tones in their speech. Grey, dull and lifeless, every waking hour a reminder of their impatient existence, just trying and trying--WAITING for something to happen!! It's a frustrating existence. The mindscape can be strange place sometimes. What do you do when your faith is like a driftwood lost in the open sea, where rainstorms and waves hurl, pound and crash mercilessly?

Emotional turmoils can be turned around, just like that. All you need is a different perspective, or a single change of event, and that mental prison can open up.

It's tough to see the wider picture when you are in the middle of the storm I suppose. I hope they will be ok.
