They say those who don’t know their history are condemned to repeat it.
That is true for things outside of world history, we hate to admit it.
I saw an Instagram post that read, “Evolve or repeat.”
Not gonna lie, that hit home, and those 3 words cut deep.
Because that shit is true, I’ve experienced it first hand,
you have to learn the lesson before you can expand.
Some people are doomed to repeat the same fate
until they set their own record straight.
Evolve or repeat…
You can’t move on until it’s complete.
It’s one or the other, either do it again or make a change.
At times it can really feel like an unfair exchange.
How do you expect different results when things are being done the same?
And then to have it be an endless cycle is truly a fuckin’ shame.
Now, I know that change is definitely easier said than done.
I’ve had my fair share of scenarios where I had to look in the mirror and see what I’ve become.
So I’m not acting all high and mighty and trying to throw shade,
because I know first hand how this game is played.
You keep repeating because you have that glimmer of hope,
and then you continue and then you realize…. nope.
At what point does the cycle need to break?
Yes, don’t give up easily, but at what point is your sanity at stake?
Fuck this shit, get me out of this cycle, get me off this ride.
You’re becoming aware, and now you can say you’ve tried.
That’s the first step in what can feel like a never ending cycle –
see the pattern, and stop being so in denial.
You’ve been here before, you don’t want to repeat and dance this dance again.
In that case, you’ll be open to try something different then.
I want to evolve and learn the lesson I need to know,
for I know it is necessary for me if I really want to grow.
