When stuff happens, you change. Everything around you changes. So, your life will too. The thing is you have to move forward. Make your life better than ever. Soon, you'll not want your old life because the new one will be better.

Your not really giving us a lot of details to go on, how are we supposed to answer you? There are a ton of factors. but for the overall answer, life goes on and life changes, we arent supposed to stay in one place. So what ever you are going through or who you are now, just know it is the current chapter in your life who you are, we cant live looking back. So to answer your question, you can't live like you used to because life goes on and changes.

Because life changes nothing will ever stay the same which is why you have to live your life now and move on from the past.

Because things change. I keep forgetting this myself, but everything changes. If you look back, you may be happy to even be where you are today. I say I wish for things to be back to the way things were, but I realize that can't happen and will settle for wishing for less hecticness

We change. But sometimes, our self-image stays the same. Or we think we should live life according to norms society, parents or surroundings put on us. However, try to find out how you changed and how you could use that for your advantage. Your old Self is gone- and that´s how it´s supposed to be. How can you be more present in your life with how you are now?

life is about change whether its our environment that's changes, the people around us change ;or we find ourselves changing. these are the things that keep us from continuing in the same path all the time. If we remained on the same course and reacted in the same way, had the same attitude we wouldn't have had the changes to grow and better ourselves.

The world takes us in directions that are sometimes out of our own control. Nothing is ever the same, things change for a reason, things happen for a reason, sometimes the roughest waters are the ones leading to the calm water. You can choose which river to go down, but not know where it goes. You can live your life any way you want, but its about being strong enough to be the person you want to be.
