The past was wonderful at the time you were living it, but now it's time to move on. Unfortunately, that's much easier said than done. From now until your next birthday, you'll find you almost instinctively attract people who will (probably unconsciously) encourage you to continue living in the past.
You're going to need to realize that those days are over and it's time to bring yourself into the now. If the people you're with this year don't appreciate or support that, then you may want to consider taking a little quality alone time.Being a hermit may not exactly sound appealing, but for you to really get ahead with your life, rather than continue down the same path, you need to understand what's going on. That may require getting away from anyone who's holding you back. This could also be a good time for you to learn that you can't always get your way. Your fear of dealing with the future may be part of what's keeping you in the past, but throwing a temper tantrum to make everything turn out the way you want it really won't help you in the long run. You're going to need to learn to let life run its proper course this year and how to accept whatever your life has to offer -- you'll probably find out that whatever happens, it's better than what's already been.
