Moving on can be different things.
I regularly play a game in my head where I try to imagine what my life would be like if my old job never ceased to exist.
Lately, when I play that game, I get genuinely sad when I think of all the people I wouldn’t have met this last year if my life hadn’t gone this way instead.
It’s not easy to admit. But it wasn’t easy getting here, either.
Sometimes moving on doesn’t mean being over something but rather being able to appreciate all the things that have happened instead.
Some things are easier to move on from than others, and some things, at least in small, immovable parts, are impossible to move on from completely.
They instead come with, a ghost on your shoulder, as you do your best to just move along.
