I cannot recall trying to escape from anything.When I think of the word, there are many things a person tries to escape from not just physically remove oneself but mentally too.
I had the unfortunate experience of getting calls from relatives who wanted something. I politely refused but they were not willing to give up. The only way I thought I can stop this was to change my number I did that and felt good that they will have no way of contacting me.
Extreme boredom can also be a problem, I try to get out of it by finding things to do, like read a book, write a story ,listen to some music,call a friend and chat.
