You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

Lately a few people that I know have been talking about relocation for various reasons. Don't like the city, need to get away from people or family, a man/woman. Some of these reasons not the right ones in my opinion. A relative of mine decided out of the blue that he was going to move to a whole different part of the country. He informed me of his decision 3 days before his move. I did not have a problem with him moving, he is a mature(in age)adult. I did however have and issue with his spur of the moment decision. He said that it was not. (whatever) Now this person is back after 2 weeks. Didn't work out. (What a surprise)

My reasoning for writing this post is that 1. I am plan tired of people dogging my home city. It may not be Chi Town, L.A or NYC but it's your home. It's what you make of it. 2. relocation is not a problem solver. If something is wrong with you on the inside, it will be wrong with you wherever you go until you solve the issue. 3. If you are going to move have a plan. Don't just make decisions and not know what the h.e. double hockey sticks you are going to do.

This person returned and blames things on other folks instead of themselves. Says that me and someone else called them selfish. I know I didn't say this.

Uggh............ I am not in the mood for this stupid crap.

Congratulate me ladies. If you can't tell I am really trying hard not to use any profane words in this post.Every time I go to use one I tell myself that there is power in the tongue. I am working on my deliverance.

Whew... Just needed to vent. Thanks for allowing me to.


  1. What an interesting posting. I sometimes feel the need for a change, but I'm not going to runaway. I'm going to take it slow and weigh my opinions. I have always said if I have the funds to travel I don't mind living in my city, but I don't know if I feel the same now. I might have to see what another town has to offer (employment opportunities, men, culture and etc) in the future. I'm not going anywhere in this economy. I'm not crazy. :o)

    But back to the person who called themselves "running away." If someone is calling them selfish, maybe they need to take a hard look at themselves.

    Love ya!

  2. I know, You know who I am talking about. He said we called him selfish.

  3. That person is "selfish" and most of the time they think about themselves. :o) I'm surprise they went there with you.

  4. Good post kmr. With the economy everyone is looking for a golden opportunity I suppose. I guess I'm a little crazy or adventurous because I think a person without responsibility shouldn't limit themselves on locale. Once you start building a home and making a family, it's a little different.

    If they're complaining of local living tell them to come down here. The mayor of Memphis resigned and 25 people are running for his seat. Ha!
