but I DO believe that the way you "deal with them" (each and every one)
. . . is
meaning: not everyone who crosses your path was a person you dated back in 1842 . . . however, the patterns of how you interact with, and process, the "results"
are "echoes" and to find your way forward, it is good (I think) to examine what plays out (if it does)
over and over and over again
as I say (pretty much all the time to someone): "a pattern is a pattern until it becomes a lesson"
and these patterns of course are rooted in childhood experience -- but childhood experience??
what is the root cause, ultimately, for THAT ??
hence my theory "above"
