Sometimes, you need to take a step back in order to take a step forward.
You might not want to, it might hurt, it might cost you time, it might cost you money.
But sometimes, it’s the only way forward.
Don’t see it as a bad thing. See it as a necessary step in order to achieve what you really want.
The path you take doesn’t always lead somewhere so you have to go back in order to find a new path forward.
It’s once you take that new path that you often see that it was worthwhile and something you had to do. Had you not, you would be lost with no direction.
