Stop beating yourself up over how long it took you to make a move. Whether you left someone, left a job, went back to school, or changed anything else – the important thing is that you did it. You did it when the time was right for you – or you will do it when the time is right for you. Yes, you can look back and wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. It is important to remember that when you know better, you do better. And the past is done. Your goal now is to work with the future. Don’t forget the past – learn from it. If you don’t find the lesson now, don’t be afraid to look at it again later – maybe you will see the lesson then. But visit the past, don’t live there.
