Our life plays out in a series of patterns. They repeat over and over again, invisible but always present. These insidious patterns govern everything from the rhythm of our breath to the way our bodies function.
You might try to look for these patterns and may even succeed in identifying them. But don't kid yourself into believing you can change them.
You try to break out of the pattern, but again, that little rebellion also becomes a part of it. You decide not to slip up again, vow to change, to not let those actions govern your life. But you fool yourself, every time you even think you have succeeded.
You will fall off the wagon, do everything that is bad for you, will continue making excuses for the people around you, will continue putting yourself in the line of fire, and will continue feeling like crap at the end of the day.
Good day, losers.
