I feel as if though people fall into a pattern in their lives. Either the abuser or abuser. Same ethnicities. Lives. Of poverty or lives of opulence. Either the discriminator or the discriminated. In your lives have you had patterns where it's the same thing or have you experienced the flip side of the coin. Say you were a poor street child with no parents who is abused by society then now this time around you are born in a wealthy loving family. Or you had several lives as slaves but then in one you are the slave owner. For me in most lives I've experienced I am not given much. I was a poor orphan begging borrowing or stealing to survive in 1500's England. That was a miserable life. In this life I might as well have been an orphan because I was born into neglect. In every life I'm not given much and that makes me very bitter at times. However if something good happens that's my own doing. If I make money it's usually me being self made. My energy lady who works with my energy told me I. This life my lesson to learn is that I can't change others or control my environment but I have control over myself. Not having control drives me crazy though. I feel like I've fallen into the same patterns and I hope I have control over my next life. I feel like I didn't have too much can control in choosing this terrible life either that it was decide for me. Do you feel like you have been placed in the same patterns? Or do any of you have opposing lives where each life is the polar opposite of the last?
