Even new beginnings take time. We tend to gravitate toward the familiar and the comfortable and the known, but we also crave change. What you will discover when you break away is that you cannot escape your past, but the distance makes it more malleable. It’s easier to rewrite the past when it’s far away in terms of time and geography.

You’ll see life in a different way. Reality alters with every transplant. You’ll realize you no longer feel like the person you were when you are in a new place, without the same people or surroundings. This is remarkably freeing. Don’t let yourself become trapped. There is always a way out. There is always a solution, but it often involves patience and perseverance and a ridiculous level of optimism.
