To summarize the web
celebrity's experience in a sentence—their hometown is a place they can never return. Of course, this is not in a physical sense. There are three meanings here: First, with rapid urbanization, when you have been away for years, your hometown never stays the same as in your memory. When returning, you are unable to locate the old traces. Second, people who have been toughened by living in the city are transformed into new individuals without even realizing it. Their habits, values, and outlook are no longer compatible with small-town thinking. No matter if it's in lifestyle or culture, there will exist a large gap between them and their friends from the old times. There's now essentially nothing in common between the two groups. Thirdly, it refers to a spiritual return. Hometown is merely a symbol of childhood. Times are always changing and everyone has to adapt. In this sense, no one can simply retreat back to a peaceful childhood.
