I
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost...I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

II
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

III
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

IV
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

V
I walk down another street.

I love it....

The definition of INSANITY is doing the same behaviour and expecting different results. This goes for every aspect of life...especially in relationships. When I want someone to change their behaviour...it usually is an insane notion Hope you are well Lanette

Re: I love it....

I loved it too! Especially how many times it takes. It's worth not giving up. People CAN change if they want to, but only if I want to can I change and even then it takes major effort and multiple tries.
