Repeat, repeat when it should be delete. How many New Year’s resolutions fail, how many attempts to give up smoking, drinking or leave a toxic relationship end up starting all over again? Going back to the way they were with that sinking feeling of ‘here we go again’.
Why do we do it? What is your repeat, repeat performace giving you, pleasure or pain coupled with a splash of attention? Are you someone who craves the drama or is it the attention you receive when you talk about what you are doing?
How does one jump off the merry-go-round of here we go again? I believe it is a simple two-step process. Step one is to decide what exactly you want to have in your life and naming what you need to remove for you to achieve the life you really desire. Step two is find a trained professional to make you accountable when you do make the break.
Song by Demi Lovato – 2nd verse Here We Go Again
‘So how did you get here, under my skin? I swore that I’d never let you back in, should have known better, that trying to let you go, ‘cause here we go go go again. Hard as I try I know I can’t quit, something about you, is so addictive, we’re falling together, you’d think that by now I’d know, cause here we go go go again’.
Final words for those of you who find yourself repeating the same pattern, jump off the merry-go-around of ‘here we go again’ and don’t repeat, repeat when you should delete.
