“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past”

I have just discovered this quote, it is the last line of the book The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This line I feel describes how I live my life everyday. Everyday I try and move towards something new, a more positive place, but I am constantly reminded of the past and every so often I am dragged right back.
