Re: Why do I never learn from previous mistakes?

I am also one of those people who learns through pain and consequence.

That is it, right there.

Unless the previous mistake causes a significant pain to myself or to others
I love, and the consequences of the mistake have to be reckoned by my own self, then it would carry on and continue because there were no actual consequences for the mistake I had made.

And constantly having to re-write my schedule and activities just makes me constantly worried and stressed because nothing can ever go the way I plan. I know what Iím supposed to avoid to improve my productivity and what tools to try and overcome my difficulties with studying but I regularly fail to put these concepts into practice and I have never been able to spot red flags until itís too late.

I just feel very defeated and fed up. Iím just so tired of struggling so much just to barely scrape by in life, even in areas that Iím good at. I just donít know what I keep doing wrong over and over and over again to end up in the same mess as the last time (in this case, struggling to finish coursework on time). Iím just tired of constantly trying to fix myself so I can finally be a functioning adult.
I could have totally written this post! It's the end of the semester and I'm a trainwreck once again.
