We heard this line for so many times, history repeats itself.
Yes, we tend to repeat things that made us feel good, gave us a rush, or avoid things that burnt us, hurt us. We make decisions based on how we grew up, got exposed to, and it is really difficult to know if something tend to be wrong when we’ve never knew it isn’t in the first place.
Collective notion doesn’t always mean it’s the right way forward; nor because it is different from everybody else makes it interestingly and eventually correct. So where do we play and how do we play?
I don’t know. The world and human beings are continuously evolving. We’ve seen members of our family failed big time, we repeat some, and we learnt so hard we overcome and lead to the opposite direction. We saw success and we follow through, repeat what truly works.
Right now, I get consoled with the idea that after going through pain comes a stronger person. I am grateful that there is something I can smile about and admire for its beauty. And I pray that I may have the wisdom to learn and act with love.
