It is wise to separate yourself from forces that do not serve you and would rob you of your peace. There is no failure in retreat that allows you to regroup and move toward your own center and a much stronger position. Ultimately you will have a stronger grasp of your situation.
It may seem as if you are wandering in unknown territory until you can begin to move and relate with your environment from within yourself. Watch, listen, study, contemplate, then step lightly but decisively on.
