What Starting Over Really Means Because It’s More Than Just Saying Goodbye

Starting over doesn’t have to be so bad. Endings are not always painful and sad. Starting over is another way of surviving. Another way of writing a new story. Another chance at a better life.

Starting over gives you a choice. A choice to become a better person. A choice to forget the past, the things that held you back and begin again. A choice to leave the toxic people behind and find people who make you happy. People who support you. People who make loving you look easy. A choice to redeem yourself and change what you weren’t happy with.

Starting over means you’re learning that life could be better somewhere else. You’re learning not to settle. You’re learning to see the blessings in endings and the good in goodbyes. You’re learning that there’s a place where you belong. A place where you don’t have to apologize for being yourself.

Starting over means you’ve seen it all fall apart and you learned how to put it back together. It means you know how to use everything you have ruined to create something beautiful. It means that you know how to rebuild what others have destroyed.

Starting over means you’re not afraid to be wrong. You’re not afraid to try again. You’re not giving up on yourself. You’re not giving up on your potential. You’re not just sitting there contemplating whether or not you can do something. You’re not just sitting there crying over your past and remembering all your mistakes. You’re changing your direction. You’re driving to a new place. You’re taking a new road because you understand that you’re not stuck. You can always move. You can always leave. You can always take a different route.

Starting over means you’re brave. You’re not afraid to end things. You’re not afraid to break your own heart. You’re not afraid to put yourself first and trust yourself that you can get things right. You’re not afraid of the unknown. You know that better things are out there. You believe that the best is yet to come. TC mark
