it’s hard to step away from the things that you truly care for, that truly stand for something. however, there is something truly elusive in returning to them, with a fresh mindset, with a new attitude, and a new willingness to approach them. these things, whether they are people we left behind, or career choices or frames of mind, follow the same rule – returning to them and realizing you want to work on them / with them once more makes it a more solid decision the second time around. it’s not about second chances, but more like leaving home and returning after a long enough while to really feel the change.
transition to reentry is similar to adjusting an old space to a new situation, or in this case, creating new space for an older mindset.
