The Great Escapist.
Well, we might not be, but mice have a great sense of direction and from generation to generation, they have master the ability to outsmart us and outrun us.
Escapism, a great way to prolonging life, but also a pitiful one depending on the context. We escape from the world for many reasons. From reality seems to be the big one, responsibility, the future, the past, and the present. Escaping mentally and emotionally through substance seems to be the quickest road away from pain, stress, life, but keep in mind that life cannot be ran away from; warning, you can run, but you cannot hide.
If escaping is the only way, then escape to a place you can call home, a place surrounded by loved ones, a place of peace and serenity. Don't allow yourself to be a victim of your own traps.
