This is an extremely difficult word to use, since it mostly refers to parts of plants. But there comes a point when looking back on your life that you have to wonder if you’ve even bothered to look forward. This path of reflection I’m on has been a great journey for me; a new-found way of looking at the world and looking for the cause and effect of what has made me who I am. I am now getting to the point where I’m understanding who I am, and starting to look more intently at my future. As a result, looking back at my past feels as though I’m taking one step forwards and two retrorse steps. I know it’s natural to look at your past, but there comes a point when it is the opposite of what you should be doing, and that’s almost where I feel now.
