This is an interesting one @Peace Dove
, very thought provoking that's for sure!
For me this has been true, but only when I learn from those mistakes and from difficult times.
This only happens when I find a way through without running from whatever pain arises. From not reaching for something outside of myself to change the way I feel.
If I'm making new mistakes, then I just see that as having a go at living life, trying new things and learning along the way. To be human is to make mistakes and to discover things about self, other and the world through trial and error.
But on the flip side, I have also found myself in patterns of repetitive mistakes and behaviour that does not serve me and nothing good comes from it until I realise what is happening and make a choice to change things.
I love your quote to @Deyfhob
, reminds me that things don't always happen in my time and that I almost always get what I need exactly when I need it, I just can't see it at the time sometimes
I'd love to hear what this brings up for others?
