Thanks for Calling #12 - Why do we make the same mistakes over and over again?
Here’s the twelfth episode of Thanks for Calling. Thanks for dropping by.
"Again?!" we say to ourselves in despair, sometimes even out loud. We have all done it. We have caught ourselves making the same mistake yet again. Why, oh why do we find ourselves in the same position again? "Maybe I'm just attracted to the wrong sort", we say to ourselves. "Maybe I'm just incapable or learning", we chastise. "Maybe I'm just dumb", we admonish. Of course, sometimes it isn't mistakes that we repeat. For example, sometimes we find ourself listening to the same song over and over again, or maybe going through a phase where we like to watch the same TV show or movie a few times on repeat over a short period of time.
Have a listen to my podcast about how we can react when we try to break habits that may have been with us for years, and how old habits die hard.
