I wonder how often when something has not quite worked out for you or you find yourself having the same disappointment that you have had before you hear yourself saying 'that's just like me!'.
It's a phrase that's so easy to say and can superficially give us comfort that things are ok. But are they? Do you want things to not work out and to repeat making the same mistakes. Why accept less of yourself?
