You’ve done this many times before. Why will this time be different?
I’m not the only person to have asked myself that question. You’ve probably done it yourself. The reason that question hurts so much is that up until now, none of the times have been any different. Asking it to yourself again is essentially the same thing as reminding yourself of all the times you’ve tried before and failed. If enough failures come, you start to wonder if it’s even worth it.
