There are times where you may feel as though you have returned ‘back to square one’ that you have taken a step back and this is a negative thing. But to me, in my opinion, that is literally impossible. Just because you have returned to a familiar situation, does not mean that you are back exactly where you used to be. You are a different person now. Your thoughts and attitude towards things are different now. You have had new experiences and you are becoming a different person. See this familiarity. Acknowledge it. It is clearly a part of your evolution, your growth. We cannot always choose where life takes us, but we can choose our attitude towards it. See the positive in returning to a familiar situation that you do not wish to be in. Allow yourself to flower.
