The best way out of a situation, is directly through it.  Not always easy, but in the end, you will be better off.

Hitting a difficult situation head on may be scary.  But it's better than trying to work around it.  Skirting the edges of a situation that you clearly need to be rid of, will only postpone the inevitable, prolong your misery and will make the actual end more difficult.

Change is not easy for a lot of people.  But if you're in a situation that needs to change, make it, life is too short.
