Just Learn the Freakin' Lesson Already !!!

Have you ever known someone who seems to repeatedly falling into the same bad situations?

Maybe it's the girl who repeatedly dates the jerks? or the guy who repeatedly finds himself in a crappy job? or the couple that repeatedly seems to have financial difficulty? or the couple that repeatedly seems to be having the same marital problems? or... whatever. Just think for a minute. Try to think of someone in your life that seems to repeatedly be in the same bad situation. Got someone in mind? Okay, good.

Now, take whatever it is you know about that person & their situation(s), and really think about how they got there. Really think about it. Maybe it's you. Take a minute and really think about how you got into your current bad situation. And last time? What happened to get you there?

Now, the part most of us don't like, it comes down to decisions, doesn't it? Repeatedly making the same bad decisions over & over & over. What? You don't like that? Well, think about it. Really think about it.

I'm right, aren't I?

It's actually your fault your in that same bad situation. Again.

That's right. You did this to yourself.
Often, I think that maybe the first time we ended up in such situations, was because God was trying to teach us a lesson. And so after the lesson, He gives us a test, of sorts, giving us the opportunity to choose to learn from the lesson & make better decisions. And if we don't? Well, the next lesson often gets harder.
Rinse. Repeat.
And if you don't start paying attention, start learning your lessons, before you know it you're in one heckuva bad place. And, if I know most people, you'll be saying that you don't know how you got there.

That's why I want you to think. Really think about how you got there.

Learn your lesson. Make better decisions. Move on to easier lessons, and even blessings in that formerly tragic area of your life.

Don't be one of those people who finds themselves in their 50s, still repeatedly finding themself in the same bad situation they've been ending up in since their teens. Learn, people. Learn.

It becomes difficult to feel sympathy for those people, doesn't it? Oh, you're sorry they're struggling. But since now you see how they got themselves there, how their blaming of everyone else is misplaced, it's much more difficult to truly sympathize, to feel badly for them.

And you want nothing more for them to finally learn from their mistakes, learn from their years of bad decisions, learn the lesson & move on to truly greener pastures.

Just learn.
