Longing for a place where one was previously and then returning there, only to discover the feelings are not the same is quite common. Returning to re-see what you loved as a view can be wonderful.

Not only are current issues not solved, but a ‘happy place’ in one’s mind can be destroyed, leaving a person with one less place to ’retreat’ when needed, or the place seems able to help, improve and restore happiness.

‘Never try to go back’ is so true, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Yet how often have you re-met someone with whom you lost contact and discovered the same ‘soul-connection’ that was there before?

How does one decide what would be best. Go with the heart and the gut-feel?
