*EDIT*
Alright. I was never the one to explain the things I come up with, I always thought, if you have to explain it, it's no good. And maybe this is not good either, but after reading most of your comments, I decided to take a stand.

As someone wisely pointed it out, the quote is not about physical dangers. It's ot about bears, killers, spiders, zombies and whatnot. Sorry to disappoint.

What it is about, is that thing we all do. Yeah, you too. We keep running away from our problems, some literally, some not. We drink, we take drugs, we lie, we pretend, we have promiscous sex with strangers, call it what you want, we use every distraction in the book to numb ourselves, forget we have problems, our demons, and let's be honest here, we all have some. It's not until we accept those demons, and ackowledge that we do in deed have problems, that we stop running from something we could not possibly run away from in the first place, because it's been a part of our very selves.

I'm not sure if it makes sense to you, dear viewer, as you might be one of those types of people who don't have any problems with literally anything, or be in such great denial you think you don't have any demons. That's fine. It's just that some people run away. And that's fine, too.

It makes every bit of sense to me because I always run, from everything. Someday I want to stop, I want to stop because I've found something worth stopping for. I feel like I might have, but until then I want to run until I forget why I started running. This is so simple and meaningful that anything more would just take away from its meaning. Amazing job, really =)

Unless it's a car aimed at you. Or rude comments to your face. But if it's something like an injury to your skull then it really is in your head.

I thought your explanation was kinda obvious. I didn't even think about physical dangers. I didn't know people took it that way.

When you have problems, you just want to run away from them. You don't want to face them. But if you talk them out, they can go away. It's really good, though! :)

(I know I posted this in reply to a couple other ppl but it goes in line with the artists idea and I very much support the sentiment) Aside from the frivolous jokes about physical dangers most people never encounter, the things we avoid are always less scary/ less important than they seem.

The bullet that went straight through your head didn't kill you; you chose to die.

If only you'd all look outside of your little boxes, you'd know that. :"I Seriously, just stop trying to avoid the bullet and take it on. It's the only true way to overcome it. So, *clearly*, I agree with this picture.
