Growth Isn’t Always About Looking Ahead

You probably think of life in a linear fashion most of the time.

For example:

Birth > Childhood & School > College > Profession > Marriage & Kids > Retirement > Death

And of course, the fact that your life is always moving forward between the points knows and birth and death is true; the flow of time demands that.

But not everything in life works this way.

For example, many times you have to take a few steps back, or even more than a few steps, to heal some kind trauma that has occurred in your past.

This could be any kind of trauma: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual. It could be about you (your self) or a loved one (a relationship).

Whatever is not serving you from your past may be holding you back from growing today.

But it’s OK, and possible, to let those stories go.
