"Once you have learned a lesson, you don’t have to repeat it.
Once it’s learned, you’re free.
The learning of a lesson—such as standing up for yourself, respecting yourself, holding yourself most dear, loving yourself—often brings big changes.
A relationship may end.
A job may end.
You might move.
Your lifestyle may change.
Change will come, when you are learning lessons.
And it is this fear of change that tends to make you hang back in the back row, repeating and repeating the same thing:
You might attract relationships that are humiliating or abusive... and stay in them.
You might go to jobs that are dull and boring . . . and stay there.
You might live in places that don’t resonate with you . . . and stay there.
You might have habits and addictions that keep you numb . . . and continue them.
You refuse to learn the lesson, because you are afraid of change. You repeat the lesson over and over, never learning it, because you are afraid of change.
And yet, of course, change is just how things are.
Learn the lesson or don’t learn the lesson.
But there is no escaping change."--Messages from the Divine
