Throughout our lives, we may come across people who examine their self worth through their past accomplishments. They might yearn for their glory days, and find themselves wishing to go back to a simpler time. They might also surround themselves with people who shared in those past experiences merely as a way of keeping that dream alive.
You may be one of those people.
If that’s you, it’s important to structure your life in a way that points forward. Don’t bog yourself down in wishing for the past or dwelling on it. As you might have discovered, a life lived backwards can only lead to regrets.
Remember that no matter your situation in life, there’s a new experience waiting for you up ahead. If it’s time for a change, it may just be time to leave home and set out on a new path.
Whichever path your journey takes, go with confidence.
