Flush and flush but it is as if they keep coming back to taunt you. You can’t leave the bathroom until they have gone either. You don’t want other people to see them after all. What would they think?
Okay. I’m not actually talking about turds. I’m speaking metaphorically about the people, relationships or circumstances which seem to keep floating up into our lives like a big smelly one.
We try to get out or get away but they come back or we go back. It is like some sort of groundhog day or as they say, like deja vu – all over again.
The trick is to understand that people have a role to play in our lives either good or bad. We have to learn the lessons from them because they are our teacher and we are their student. It was agreed between you both a long time before you were born in fact. You will keep seeing them or having the same experience until you learn what you need to learn.
It tells us in A Course in Miracles never to ascribe the role to our brother. We don’t get to choose what they do or how they do it.
It is never personal so don’t take it as such. They are doing you the biggest favour of your life. Especially if they really treat you like shit. They are teaching you the most important lesson of all. To love yourself.
Then, when all is learned – POOF. They disappear, just like magic.
And yes, you know exactly what I’m talking about so don’t act the innocent.
Hey, I don’t make the rules.
