Life is a destination, it isn’t set goals and end results. Life is living, it fluctuates, it changes every second. Sometimes you have to leave behind everything familiar to truly find your self. if life has kicked you down so many times that you no longer recognize your self in the mirror, those are times for change. If a path opens up that can lead to self again, to living your life again, then that path must be taken, that large change must happen. Live your life. Follow that path. You will find inner peace.
