Catching on to the insanity

I've known a certain person for a number of years. And in that time, I've known nothing but drama in her life. Don't get me wrong here. I LIKE this person. And most of the drama isn't necessarily something she's created. We're not talking Gossip Girl here. It's more of a, why does all this bad stuff keep happening to her, drama. The other day, she posted something on her Facebook about yet another drama in her life. I was instantly unsympathetic and not ready to walk down another hard road with her.

Later that day, another person posted the definition of insanity- doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

I realized that is my friend's problem. In fact, we all have that same problem. More specifically, I have that problem.

I've been struggling with a couple of situations in my life for a while now. Hard stuff that I just can't even deal with most of the time. I always tell myself that it has to get better sometime. I pray. I do everything I know how to do. And yet, I'm still mired in these same situations I wish would just go away. They haven't.

Regarding these situations, I am insane. But I'd like to think that having caught on to my insanity, I can change how I look at the situations. What I need is a new perspective. A new way of dealing with them. A new set of prayers to pray over them.

What insanity do you need to wake up to?

Is it alright if I disagree with the definition of insanity?? Since I'm such a disagreeable girl? ;-)

I think this form of insanity is part of human nature. :)
