Repetitious
Have you ever known someone who just kept making the same mistakes over and over again? Someone whose head you want to shake and tell them to smarten up?

I'm sure I was that person at one point, and because of that I think I see it it others. In fact, I once had my palm read and the lady laughed at me and said that I will likely have a long life because we are all here until we learn our lessons and it looks like it takes me several tries to learn my lessons. I'm much wiser now - if I do say so myself - than I was ten years ago... but then again, aren't we all?

Actually, I think there are many who aren't. There are several people who Just Don't Get It. A popular avenue to repeat mistakes in is relationships. You know, the girl or guy who just seems to want a good partner, but makes their choices so poorly that you can identify a trainwreck months before it happens.

For example, let me introduce you to Cassa... I think I've read her blog for a year and a half. I almost can't look away because she reminds me of the me that made bad decisions. The me that wanted to meet someone wonderful but couldn't get past my own issues to really get to know a guy. About every other blog post I want to hug her and shake the crap out of her at the same time.

I have another friend who is in an abusive relationship and just had a baby with her boyfriend, thinking that would solve it. It doesn't matter what I've said, she gets suckered back in because he keeps promising to 'change'. But her self esteem is so low that she won't ever leave I'm afraid.

There are plenty of trainwrecks out there. I hope that I'm not one of them ever again, lol... I've started to try and steer clear of them because reading about their problems again and again... always with the same angst-filled confusion is getting too repetitious for me.

Wow. You're so clearly better than me. How nice for you.
