We cannot go back, should not go back – should not want to go back, if we want anything in our lives to be better. Better is always ahead of us and cannot be found looking behind us, because behind us is where a perished past has been left …
Did you ever reawaken to self-interrogate, how much more you could take, from this person or that problem, or some other predicament of life?
Returning to equilibrium cannot be got from any backward glance or unwinding clock. Recovery from an injury does not make us whole, never returning to our pre-injury self. In short, we do not un-ring any bell.
Ahead is where our life is, whether or not we are pointed that way.
