I often hear people worry about starting over. If you don’t start over, can you fix all the mistakes you’ve made before?
The answer is complicated, but I think that focusing on the things that are achievable and forgetting about other issues is a good place to start. Maybe it’s pretending to have given up and re-found yourself. Or maybe it’s keeping your head down for so long that now you’re looking at things from a different perspective — one where you won’t be shy or pressure yourself through perfectionism.
Starting over is actually a good thing! – Think about it.
1) You get a chance to make new choices
When you stand up from the ashes of your mistakes, it’s important to make sure you don’t make everything about them. You can blame no one for stumbling and then finding yourself on the path of a new form of bliss. It’s important to start over and try again — after all, that’s what life is.
2) There are more opportunities
If you’ve been sitting in the ground for too long and now have the opportunity to move forward on a different path, then why wouldn’t you? It’s important to keep an eye on yourself and not be afraid to change so you can find yourself again — or figure out who you are.
3) You get a clearer vision
If you look over your past, you can see how your mistakes have affected the person you were then. But if you close your eyes and look ahead, what do you want to be? What do you want for yourself? If this image of yourself is clear and bright enough, even if it’s against the strongest of currents, then find a way to get there.
4) Others need an example
“I can’t do that” is an excuse many people use in life. But have they ever thought about themselves as an influence on others? Maybe they don’t have control over what they say or how they act, but they are still providing an example for how to behave.
5) Life is always a process
There are always new things to learn. The more you learn, the better you get at life. If you’re someone who’s learning how to cook, or someone who’s trying to improve their own writing, or even someone who goes outside with more courage than before — that is all an example of starting over again.
I think it’s important to start over again and again because it means you’re growing! Learn from your mistakes and start again with a new perspective! And remember that life is always a process. There are always new things to learn. So be sure to keep on moving forward. Just don’t forget your past… it could help show you the way in the future.
6) It’s about moving forward
You don’t have to forget what happened in the past, but it’s not about living there. And starting over doesn’t mean you’re going to forget the people who helped you get where you are now — but that doesn’t mean you have to be where you were before.
There will never be a perfect time or season to start over again, but this is all part of life. We may not want to remember some things and we might want to live differently and try something new, but it’s important not to lose sight at all.
If you have some trouble remembering what’s worth remembering, maybe you should try starting over. Also, remember that life is about moving forward.
When you start over again, you should learn from your mistakes, but it’s not about living there. Also, remember that it’s important that you’re not living in the past.
