We repeat what we don't repair
A while ago, I started using a meditation app called Pacifica, which has now rebranded itself (with a few additional features) as Sanvello. Although my meditation practice has somewhat done downhill, I've tried to find the time recently to get back into a regular routine of listening to a guided meditation every day. Anyhow, one of those features, which I quite like, is a daily quote on the homepage which is usually inspiring, insightful or otherwise uplifting. I particularly liked the one today, which is why I would like to share it with you:

It reminds me of 2 very similar quotes I saw a while back, "Until you change your thinking, you will always recycle your experiences." and the other by the great Carl Jung, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." We all develop patterns of behaviour, habitual ways of acting which can be detrimental or even self-destructive, but until we correct the errors of our attitudes, beliefs or thoughts (or are made aware of how to go about correcting them), we are almost destined to repeat them. This is why I think therapy of any form can be so helpful because we don't always have the capacity or presence of mind to change that which seems to dictate our lives and cause a great deal of unhappiness as we don't necessarily know where we are going wrong and need the perspective of someone outside looking in.
