Something often not considered when starting anew is the simultaneous recognition and disposal of the old; old habits, old feelings, old arguments, old promises (do promises get old? can you slough those off?)
I am impressed with people who move on quickly, off to the next adventure, whether faced with failure or success they are always onto something new, no dwelling. I tend to linger longer, replaying things over and over in my head – usually focusing on the failures, considering the successes easy, a stroke of luck – either way, I’m slow to start again.
Then there are the people who never seem to move on at all, stagnant, repeating over and over the same words, same problems, wallowing. How many times can you run in a circle or beat your head against a door before you notice you’re being an idiot?
