What we present to you today as an example of ZINE is a very special approach to fugue that we never or hardly ever talk about.
It must be understood that the decision to flee does not suddenly arise. We do not wake up one morning and say today I’m running away.
We know full well that the process of running away does not depend only on the runaway. It is a whole set of situations and conditions that slowly take root in fertile soil, hence the overflow. The main common elements that lead to running away from home include internal malaise, discomfort in the community, absence or loss of a sense of belonging, isolation, poor self-perception, a distorted understanding of the intentions of the other, the tendency to curl up on oneself, the ease of perceiving oneself as a victim of everything and nothing. From there emanates the fugue, which then seems the only way out to escape the misunderstanding of the environment often perceived as hostile and without any other possible outcome.
Frequently comes an external element that says you understand and encourages you to leave your environment hoping to gain more control over you and give you that feeling of belonging to a new group of friends that gives you confidence and value. When you realize the situation it is often too late and you’re in a criminal group, you can not get away with it without serious consequences. You are caught up in the drug, sex or porn industry.
During the teenage period there is self-incomprehension, the questioning of almost everything that has been taught so far, the deep desire to forge our own identity and our own personality and to make our own decisions . The profound changes that take place at the teenager also makes it so that the entourage hardly has as well to recognize it and to understand it. As strangers, we must allow time to adapt and tame, better understand each other by exchanging ideas, explaining on both sides how we feel.
Of course, the teenager may feel totally misunderstood and the only way out for him is to break with his environment and take flight leaving the nest, which has become uncomfortable and almost foreign.
The attraction of freedom is stronger than family ties and the hope of a better life supplants the dull, boring and sometimes unhealthy environment.
The four zines we present today are interrelated to form a whole.
The fugue is broken up to demonstrate the perception, the particular vision and the reflection that it provokes in the runaway, her best friend, her mother and a neighbor appreciated.
The reading of one of the zines instantly provokes the mad desire to know the perception and the reaction in each of the relatives.
We believe that describing the thinking, the perception, the feelings and the reaction of the runaway and her relatives and the unconscious role in the process of triggering the fugue, will make you realize that the teenager is not alone responsible and that in one way or another, even if it is without his knowledge, the entourage contributes and is affected by the fugue. Demystifying the fugue may help to understand the importance of everyone’s role in this subtle process that is sneaky.
Let’s hope that “four-stroke flight” will make it possible to envisage the eventuality for a teenager, to leave the family nest serenely, with love and understanding without provoking definitive break of the family ties, instead of escaping or throw out of the nest at risk of heavy consequences.
The Cédrika Provencher Foundation considers that the fugue must be examined very seriously since it often ends with a disguised kidnapping. In this sense, the runaway or runaway is approached subtly and often forcibly withheld, after being caught in the nets of malicious people. A trap from which he can no longer or hardly get away with sometimes disastrous consequences.
Let’s think together to understand more about running away and then quickly go into action mode to better protect our teens and offer them the best.
If you run away </ strong>, dial: 1.855 JE FUGUE </ strong>, (1.855.533.8483)
It’s simple, tell your name, where you come from and “I run away”; that’s all.
You’ll be able to act faster to save a child from the clutches of a predator.
