Have you ever just wanted to “start over” by moving to another place? The idea can sound tempting. New location, new vistas, new job, new friends, new opportunities at love. Some people do this because they are genuinely motivated by a love of travel and novelty. Other people do this because their current life, its relationships, and situations, are all so broken that it would be easier to start over rather than working to fix all of them. This is called “pulling a geographic.” Moving away from your problems doesn’t solve them. It simply gives your subconscious thoughts and emotions a new place to create all of them again. Although it can be challenging, when we look within and discover why we helped create and participate in sustaining these dynamics in the first place is what eliminates them forever. No matter where you go, there you are. If you ever find yourself waiting to “go somewhere” to get away from problems…go within.
