Running Away in life is the first thought that comes in a lazy person mind when troubles strike. Why? It's simple. They fear facing the reality and perplexed how to overcome it. Instead of being proactive, they choose a hide and seek philosophy. These people loose confidence and exploited by others.
But the reality is not always that harsh they think. Unfortunately many who runaway from life fails to realize this. What could offer some help is reading about people who've undergone such situations and learning how they had come in terms with the circumstances can help. These real life stories can help them overcome fear and face reality. Bible is a rich source of stories about people who have faced dire circumstances who've bravely fought against such odd things. One such example is the story of Job.
