Dealing With Life and nothing but life

Well, suicide can be committed, and life can be escaped for a moment, but existence cannot be escaped really. Realistic solutions in life and existence must always be considered and this is what this article is about. Because existence cannot be really escaped no matter how hard anyone tries.

Suicide is NOT painless!

When I think of the old "MASH" motion pictures and television shows with Donald Sutherland and Alan Alda in the lead roles, I think of a genuine irony: Escapist silliness in the middle of the most serious situation of all, war. Yes, some say real peace is impossible as human nature is imperfectible. I disagree, sure it will take a long time, but it will ultimately work out and lessons will be learned to make existence smooth. But, always trying to escape is never the answer. Dealing with everything is the answer. Dealing with everything well, and realistically without flinching. So, I ask a silly question: Is there really an escape or an "easy way out"? Here is my not silly answer: There is not an easy way out in my reality and opinion, but there is always a way through.

That brings me to a point: Even the Sweet Bird of Youth or most plays by Tennessee Williams showed the real nature of escapism. Escapism only gets you deeper into muck. Positive confrontation of reality brings positive results. The results may not be instant, but they are better than trying to escape fearfully.

I have this book by a man named Bern Wheeler that I read at a local library where I live, and then bought a copy of later. It says that the only way to win is not to escape, but to confront positively, even if fear is involved. What happens when fear is reversed? Does courage happen ultimately? I have to say "yes". Because, courage is the real key to winning. I have to be blunt here, because you have to do some of your own thinking to make yourself win. See you next section.

At workplace and in personal lives, we cannot run away from issues - the earlier we confront them the more peace we enjoy. The same applies to issues between countries like disarmament - siva
