When you desperately need to open a new chapter of your life, you start over. That could be a number of different things. For some, it’s getting a new haircut. For others, it’s buying a new former-owned car. Whatever the method, starting over is one way to get the new chapter you need.
Sometimes people think starting over is ignited by love of someone else–wanting to impress them or prepare for a better potential future with them or even to make them proud. But I think starting over is ignited by self-love. We want to improve ourselves. We want to better. We don’t want to be stuck in the same old place forever.
Because if we depended on something or someone else for our lives forever, we would never attain the kind of satisfaction that comes from achieving a new chapter of your life on your own terms. Everybody wants something that is their own. Everybody wants independence.
And for goodness’ sake, if you’re wearing stripes, then make like a zebra and zigzag.
