Is It Deja Vu?
By Pamela Thomas
Have you ever had an issue or situation reoccur time and time again which left you asking, "OK, when will this go away? OR "Why me?"
Yes, why you? Great question!
The answer; oftentimes repetitive issues and situations present themselves until we learn to master them. It is usually the Universe's way of telling us we have something to learn and we need to pay close attention.
As a personal example"
For as long as I could remember I was always fixing, rescuing, making things right for everyone around me. Partly because I never wanted to let anyone down and partly because I had this need to be liked. Needless to say, I encountered people (repeatedly) who would take advantage and walk all over of me, leaving me feeling angry and powerless.
It was not until I learned that I didn't have to make things right for everyone in order to be liked the only person I was really letting down was me I could help empower people to make things right for themselves"(OK, you get the idea)"that the situation of always fixing, getting walked on and feeling angry and powerless dissipated.
I learned that it was OK to draw boundaries. And guess what? No one disliked me for it. As a matter of fact, my boundaries and my feelings were respected much more.
So here is a challenge for you...
The next time you are up against a situation that you wish would change or stop, take some time to consider the following:
1) What it is about the situation that bothers you.
2) How you feel every time the situation occurs.
3) What you can do differently to handle the situation (differently from the past times).
Use the situation as a learning experience and find a way to master it. By doing so you will help eradicate or change it.
