Love everyone
There is a way in which life always guides us and is that again and again, we repeat the same patterns, whether of circumstances or people, in order to open our eyes.
Is not it strange that someone has had 4 couples in a row who have been unfaithful? Is not it strange that the same family situation is repeated over several generations? This is not the result of chance …
When the same pattern is repeated, we have to stop and analyze what we are doing to make this happen.
It does not serve us to blame anyone, as we already know, we have the responsibility. There is something, an attitude that is causing us to attract the same situations over and over again.
Maybe we are afraid to be alone and we go with the first person who looks at us? Maybe it is selfishness that has caused all the brothers to have gone bad for several generations of our family lineage?
Stopping and analyzing all this will help us understand why we are immersed in a loop that seems to have no end.

Opening your eyes may hurt

Blindfolded woman representing you think you can not choose
On many occasions, opening your eyes is something that happens late. It is then when we look to the past and realize how life always guides us, but how we ignore it.
This can hurt us, making us think that we have lost valuable time. However, as the saying goes: “better late than never”.
Also, it is necessary to notice that opening the eyes at the right time can hurt a lot.
Be aware that the couple we are with does not do us any good and that we are with her blindly can be revealing, but at the same time heartbreaking.

Before you leave do not miss:

I will always prefer that you tell me the truth even if it hurts.
Many people choose to live life with their eyes closed, bemoaning their circumstances and always blaming whoever is closest to everything that happens to them.
However, life always guides us. We have to be prepared to discover its indications and interpret them. But, for that, we must leave guilt, victimhood, and blindness aside.
