It seems so but they don’t. They are not running, they just think that they are clever. Thinking that you can hide from your beloved does not make the love in your heart to disappear.
Suppressing Love makes it even more intense and hard to control and they assume that hiding in a relationship with another person would ease the tension.
Matter of fact, they want that special love with their divine partner but they just want room and time to think through the emotional stuff away from the whole situation that caused it and in this case, it is their beloved.
Unfortunately, life happens for all of us without exceptions and the runner has to juggle the feelings in Love and confusion that is happening inside them, they only wish to get a bubble for themselves to hide and process the emotions.
It helps when the divine Chaser keeps sending love to their runner instead of Judgement, sadness, regret, and hate. That confuses the feelings of the runner more. Feelings of Love and Comfort reaffirm to them that the Love is Real and worth giving a chance.
The runner suffers more than the Chaser because Love is Real and is here to stay. They have to move from Denial to Acceptance to Merge in the Connection.
It is much harder if they have never experienced much love in their lives so the Twin Flame Connection is like a crash course to unconditional love.
To Love another, they have to embody that Love themselves by Surrender. It’s a much more challenging experience but a Lesson they have to learn themselves.
Let them be, they Already Love You!
