People often view starting over as a negative thing but there is value in recognizing that you aren’t just going back to square one. Instead, you are starting over at a different level than which you begin which means you still have some kind of advantage in the situation.
Rather it be in your career, finances or relationship, the idea of having to start over can be very frightening. However, this thought process has helped me find peace with the decisions I’m currently having to make.
I’m sure we’ve all used the phrase, “If I knew then what I know now” without ever really thinking that we’d ever be in the position to actually start over. In these moments, it’s extremely important that you don’t allow a defeated spirit to keep you from actively participating in your life.
Put those lessons to good use and keep moving forward. Trust yourself in the process and the reason behind it all. Surround yourself with those who genuinely care about your well-being and don’t be afraid to lean on them when negativity tries to rear its ugly head. Remember, as daunting as it may seem, there is still hope.
Here’s to new beginnings!
