When unfavorable situations, actions, and emotional conflicts happen again and again in your life — same scene, different characters — there’s a good chance you are in the presence of a negative “pattern.”
Some examples of these negative patterns are: picking the wrong partner, constant conflict with your co-workers, family members, teammates, or coaches, and people-pleasing.
At best, these negative patterns cause frustration. At worst, they cause undue suffering, uphill struggle, sometimes even death.
The good news is you have the power to change these negative patterns.
