It is likely that thoughts of escapism will have crossed the minds of many in recent times.
One could observe the thoughts from a non judgemental perspective. It is only natural after all that most of us would want to escape from restrictions, from being cooped up.

Escaping from reality has its moments, often found in the ecstasy of stimulants, or happy clappy tendencies.
On the other hand, there is the possibility of escaping from distraction, to find focus in healing and personal growth. We all have more options than it might seem on the surface of things.
