I have to remind myself often that this too shall pass. Nothing remains forever and even though we may feel stagnate, we don’t ever step in the same stream twice in life.
Circumstances change, different people are involved and most of the time there are very few elements that resemble the previous situation although it doesn’t feel like it sometimes.
The point being, that we rarely – if ever – face the exact same situation in life. There are too many variables to consider and even though we feel like we’ve been here before, seeing it with new eyes is always the most constructive way to handle it.
Most importantly, we are different. We’re not the same person we were the day before, nor the same one facing this new day.
