“Fundamental changes of behavior hardly ever happen. Human beings are notorious. They insist on making the same mistakes over and over again, even after they’ve received new information” – The Thirst by Jo Nesbo
At various stages of my life I’ve said, what are in hindsight, thoughtless things that permanently altered a relationship. My friend or loved one was offended in a way I never intended and that relationship either died immediately or in time just faded away.
I lost a valuable resource.
I ask myself: How could I have been so stupid? So thoughtless?
Most often there is no answer.
Have you ever been there? I hope so because I don’t want to be alone in this.
Sad to be so flawed. So human.
“If you want a relationship that looks and feels like the most amazing thing on earth, you need to treat it like it is the most amazing thing on earth”
