kr made an interesting comment on an old forum post:
“Some people get more attention for their insistent failures than they would for a minor or moderate success — so they stick with the thing they get the most attention for, however unproductive in the long run.”
Other people weighed in on this. I got to thinking that some people seem addicted to failure. They sound like alcoholics who say they want to quit drinking but stay in the same patterns year after year after year.
What if your complaint is that your relationships are bad? You say you want them to change just like the alcoholic says he and she does not want to drink. But you make no changes in how you behave so you have the same result over and over. Could it be that you’re addicted to this result? You’re certainly attached to a cycle.
Why be attached to something you hate so much? Are you powerless in the same way an alcoholic is powerless to quit drinking?
Uranus is in Taurus. Such a good time to break out of a rut!
They say that people set their lives up the way they want them.
Do you agree?
Do you know someone who may be addicted to failure?
Is it you?
