A Step Backwards?

My shoulder is still recovering from the strain. I’m still in recovery mode which means I have to workout a little lighter than I usually would. You know, sometimes you just have to take a step back to move forward. But I found myself wondering if a “step backwards” is really backwards. Without this step, lessening the weight and lightening my workout, I may make my shoulder injury worse which would keep me out of the gym, fully, for a while. Isn’t it, then, a step forward? I ask myself this question because of perspective. I want to workout with my usual intensity and if not, I may feel like I didn’t accomplish enough which may cause me to be unhappy or to get lazy and skip exercising all together. Either way really, the step is in order to move forward. But perspective is important and definitely helps with the struggle. I believe that it really can be considered a step forward. Would you agree or disagree?
