Burning bridges

“Sometimes burning a bridge isn’t a bad thing…it prevents you from going back to a place you should never have been to begin with.” Unknown

    1. I think the quote doesn’t mean necessarily to forget our past or where we belong to.
      My personal experience, I don’t like to go back to places (broad sense) I haven’t liked the first time :-/
      Also, I think you are right but, we’re not responsible of our birth and circumstances, but what we’ve built upon them. Right?

  1. A friend and I had a similar conversation. He said he appreciated my perspective on it; “it’s good to revisit places that caused us pain and suffering as long as we learn and heal from the journey. Just don’t stay there. Move forward with your life.” Good post, David ❤

  2. I feel that way about places I’ve lived. Having been molested in the past, I was clear to my husband that there were certain places I didn’t want to be near for the horrible memories associated with them. I actually didn’t even want to return to California for that reason. I’ve since gone back there, taken pictures for my blog with my story, and even 60 years later, it made me nauseous, so I know it isn’t the place for me to be anywhere near there. No, some places you just need to distance yourself from. The past is past and it is not the sum total of who I am. Time to move on.

  3. I’m just thinking, though, that we all learn from our experiences, so maybe we should have been there to begin with…Just my two cents.

    And, oh, thanks for the FOLLOW. Sorry it took me a bit long to express my thanks.
