Repeat What We Don’t Repair

We repeat what we don't repair.png

I’m actually repeating this quote because it’s so important (but really because I forgot I already used it).

It’s okay to keep repeating the same mistakes. We can’t make changes instantly. We can’t repair habits or beliefs that may have taken years to develop. It may have taken a lifetime to develop. And it’s not just going to stop overnight. Sure, we don’t want to keep making the same mistakes. We think once we know better, we should do better. But the process can be slow. And it is not linear. You may be doing well for months or years, and then one day you’re struck by the same thought processes or behaviors you thought you were done with. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed, it just means there’s some more work to be done. We all will always have work to do.
