Recovery includes going “backwards”

When attempting to recover your life, all your decisions should be based on “how will this improve my situation?” This can include a backwards step that helps leads to progress. Recovery includes going backwards.

Consider parking your car. If you come in wide, and can only go forwards, you will do your car harm.

Sometimes you have to go backwards and take another shot at it to safely go forwards.

Sometimes you need to think of trying another car park.
