I think it's tough to go backwards; it's giving up. I think of being demoted at my job or having to back to one of my horrid ex-wives and I cringe
I can understand why they stay.

Look at Max for instance; yes he's made the best of it but I bet he burns thinking about Rossi et al. It's like Seinfeld said: "You're the 1st loser".
