When we move forward, building the next version of ourselves, we have to leave things behind. Places, people, habits.

The process of returning, coming back is very interesting.

While I'm all for personal growth, moving on, I do believe that occasionally returning to pieces of your previous self is incredibly valuable. There might be things that actually work for you now. They might've not been working in the past, but they might work now.

The "oh, I tried this before" mindset is a flawed one. Sure, you did try it before, but you were a different person back then. As we change, our needs change too. Return to the good, return to the bad.

Never discount things from the past.
