Make the link

Without making the link between the past and the present, our lives will never change and the help we get will have little or no impact.

When we leave the past behind without the understanding, history has a way of repeating itself because nothing changes, we fail to let go and move on. For us to make the link, we need to understand.

As part of the healing process, we need to understand the life we’ve lived and then decide if the life we’re living is the one we want to continue with, or the life we want to change.

  1. Yes, this does seem to be the case, which makes a lot of sense the way you have put it!

    There have been so many instances of history repeating itself in my life. I’ve made a lot of the same mistakes under similar circumstances but just with different people. It’s pretty much like the time, the loop that they talk about in sci-fi movies where they’re stuck repeating the same time period over and over.

    My biggest downfall has been trying to be the knight in shining armour, rescuing the damsel in distress, when the reality was a lot of times they didn’t want to be rescued or even help themselves.

    I’m just very tired and looking to move on before I end up becoming a bitter old man!

    1. Yes I did the same thing for many years also; I kept following the same unhappy patterns, until I eventually made the link and understood the changes I needed to make.

      I hope you’re able to move on and make that link for yourself very soon. Thanks Randy.

  2. Yes, I agree. It’s like when we have kids.

    If we want them to grow up and be different from what we did, they have to understand the mistakes and other things that happened in our life first and also be able to explain why certain things happened and the consequences that went along with the behavior.

    1. Thanks Lisa. Yes of course, children like adults must also understand so that they make the link for themselves. That way history doesn’t have to repeat itself.

      It’s when we don’t make links we go on to repeat our mistakes.

  3. I agree. The past is our key to the future but we cannot make those connections without first making the links as you describe.
