First you try and climb, pretending it never happened, but it's too tall. Then you try to go around, thinking you can fix it, but it is too far.

Walking away means that you're giving up, abandoning them. "There is no way back. There is only forward. It's impossible to imagine there's any reason to move ahead, but that isn't the real reason you give up. The real fear--the terror that keeps you rooted--is that you might be wrong." --Myron, Monk of Maribor"
