I saw this as one of the classic Buffyverse misdirects. The cliché has always been that you can’t run from your problems and you must always face them. This is what Fred expects Lorne to tell her. But Lorne defies expectation and says you just haven’t run far enough. I found that to be hilarious without giving it too much thought. We know that Lorne “ran” from Pylea and that he did not really have to go back. Rather than deal with his unpleasant family and a society hostile to Lorne’s personality, he chose to run to another dimension (initially by accident but in There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb on purpose). From this perspective, Lorne’s advice seems sound. I think Lorne has a streak of practical avoidance – if you aren’t forced to face a problem then by all means run. I am not sure that there was any way for Fred to really deal with her experiences. How do you get over spending 5 years as a fugitive cow living in a cave? From a psychological standpoint, just avoid thinking about the problems, which is somewhat the same as running from them.
