I 'stole' this from rob, but liked it and thought it would make a good topic. For those who don't know, what rob's brother is describing is called "karma".
"My brother has a theory that when you make a mistake, the "universe" has a way of making you repeat the mistake until you figure it out. It may take several repeats in the same lifetime, or may carry across several lifetimes depending on how fast a learner the soul is..."
1) Do you see yourself in this situation?
2) If you do, what is it that you're repeating?

I don't think it is karma, but something that you project. I like to call it velcro. Something in you attracts them so they latch on to you.
I think there can be both, the karma and the magnet.
My karmic issue is (that I've been working on since I figured it out!) is choosing men who are unable or unwilling to commit. They do come in all forms, cutie. The characteristic isn't something that shows on the outside.
My magnet item is I can draw people who are what I call emotional vampires. They feed off people who have the energy they do not. Like a vampire, they tend to drain your energy. I learned more about my personal energy and these people (of which I have quite a bit) when as I trained in therapeutic massage. It made me even more aware of the value of my instincts. This may all sound odd, but it's true. Try paying attention to how close people want to stand to you. Do you draw closer or want to back away? That simple act will tell you more than you realize. Some people you let in and some you don't. There is a reason for each.
