“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
If you never leave, how will you know what you need to change? If you never leave, how will you allow the chance for you to grow and change? Taking that step and leaving can be the most beneficial thing for you to learn something you never knew about yourself, it gives you that moment of seeing everything around you a little clearer… it gives you a chance to actually meet yourself, learn to love and accept yourself. It gives you that moment to step back and know who you are so that when you return back to where you started you can see just a little clearer where you’re going.
