We talk about fresh starts.
Moving on. Looking for opportunities.
Then with the next breath, we talk about another person who has ‘forced’ us to take this step like it is a form of punishment and they the executioner.
Starting afresh is a way of saying ‘no’ to ongoing suffering connected to past events and people. It says, ‘my limited energy is now going to be expended on a preferred future not a disappointed past’.
It might not be easy, it might not be simple but it certainly sets you free!
