I think it was Einstein that said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Read it again. It’s true.
When I think about ways to solve a problem I think of ten different ways to solve it, not trying the same thing over and over. So why in relationships do so many people make the same mistake over and over?
Maybe it’s an inability to change? Maybe they think that what they’re saying is that the other person wants to hear? Maybe they think promises are made to be broken? Honestly, I don’t have the answer.
If you think that this sounds like you, maybe you should try and figure out why that is. I’d recommend reading as much as you can on relationships, self-development and maybe a few books on procrastination, accountability and productivity.
All I know is relationships are hard. You can’t over-promise, you can’t stop trying. It’s ok to make mistakes. It’s not ok to keep making the same one over and over again.
