Nothing Ever Goes Away Until It Has Taught Us What We Need to Know – Pema Chodron

In life, we all have different lessons to learn – for different reasons. Life is in the experiences, and with these comes both good and bad things, both flow and obstacles.

Do you ever ask yourself, “Why does this keep happening to me?” after similar things seem to constantly go wrong? Be it love, your career, family, or anything at all, does it not seem to go the way you want it? And have you ever considered why the same things and problems keep coming back?

Everything in life happens for a reason. We go through good and bad times, and we learn from our mistakes with the bad ones – most of the time, at least. But if you haven’t learned your lesson, or learned from a mistake the first time, you can be sure to see a very similar situation take shape at some stage in the near future.

This is why it is so important that we deal with the trials we are taken through. We must face our demons, take care of ourselves, and even analyze and reflect on why something is happening – and perhaps keeps happening – to us. What lessons can you learn from this stage of life? What wisdom should you carry with you going forward?

Look over your situation to find the missing pieces. What lesson have you got to learn from the place you are in right now?

  1. Well said. I so often get frustrated by people in my family who make the same mistakes over and over again. It’s like they’re stuck on repeat. But, sadly they don’t take responsibility for what’s happened, they blame instead. I used to do the same thing, but it’s so much healthier to accept where I’ve made bad choices and to learn and grow from them.

    • That’s absolutely right, Carla! It is sometimes really hard to own up to the mistakes we’ve made, but only when we acknowledge that the responsibilities lie with ourselves and no other, can we grow and let the bad habits or reoccurring events go.
