Part Sixteen – Still Running

Reflecting on my last post, I said what I needed to say….albeit with an unhealthy level of swearing.  What’s done is done, and I really needed to get that off my chest.

Moving on, it’s been over two months since that last post, and in that time it’s hard to say where I’ve actually been at, because I’ve been up, down, and everything else in between.

Suffice to say, I ended up rejoining Facebook.

Yeah, I know.

The person who is so flatly adamant about not being a part of anything and going it alone, has rejoined the biggest social networking platform on the planet.

I’d find the irony of it all almost delicious, if I wasn’t the one doing it.

Being blunt, I stalled.  I ran out of steam, and going it alone got me as far as it could.  So, I rejoined Facebook as a result, knowing full well that it would probably be a bad idea.

Luckily, in many ways it hasn’t been…but it’s still early days, and time will ultimately tell how bad a decision it actually was, if at all.

Fortunately I’ve been very selective about who I’ve added to my Friends List, and there have been some rejections in there, which in many ways I find easier to deal with than having people in my life, but I’ll touch on that later.

I’m actually having trouble concentrating, it might be because I’ll be tackling a big subject that I’ve never really tried to tackle before, but it might be because I’ve got a mild head-cold at the moment.

Realistically, it’s probably the former and not the latter.

Where to start?

Where to start.

Where.  To.  Start.

I’ve been running for a very long time.  Absolute minimum it’s twenty years.  But, being realistic it’s closer to thirty.

It’s frustrating, writing in this blog is usually a lot easier than this, especially when I have something on my mind.  But this topic is having me draw a massive blank.

My name is Aaron Konrad Reisch, and I’m on the run.  I’ve been on the run for so long I don’t even remember from what, where, or who I’m running from, or why I even started running in the first place.

In some ways, that’s all I’ve got right now.  Some would say that I’m off to a good start because admitting to the problem is half the battle.

It’s funny, I want to instantly reject that, even though it hasn’t even been said by anyone.  It’s safe to say that rejection is all a part of the process.  It’s a big part of the running.

If I only take one thing from this section of my blog, that rejection = running, and running = rejection, it might give me some food for thought.

Yeah, it’s as good a start as any.
