I believe that at some point in your journey, you must stop in your path and think about the road you are on. Do you find it too confusing? Does it seem like you are not moving forward? Does it seem like a labyrinth? Take the time to think about it. And if you conclude that it is going nowhere, allow yourself to go back or to change your trajectory. There is no shame in doing so. The worst thing that can happen is for you to feel like you have wasted a bit of time. But better come to the realisation and make the change now then later when too much of you will be lost.
