Deja Vu, a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.
How many times do you have to see, or do the same thing over and over before you recognize it for what it is? Pay attention. You may find its the same problem, only attacking you in a different scenario. And it will continue until you recognize it and cut your losses. When you change the ending you may solve the problem. Same stuff different day.
For instance, you told someone a secret and it came back to bite you. At a later time, you are in a similar situation. You told someone a secret and it came back to bite you. Then you think, this is Deja vu. It seems as if it has happened before. It has. You just didn’t learn anything from it, in my opinion.
If it didn’t work the first couple of times it will never work. Change courses, find a new way or be stuck in a no-win situation. For the life of me, I could never figure out why a person would keep a pen that is out of ink. Throw it away. It is out of ink, and will still be out of ink the next time you pick it up, and the next time you pick it up. Get my drift?
Change is something most find hard to do. You know the rest of the story. A hard head makes for a soft behind.
