Repetition Compulsion

Sigmund Freud’s concept of ‘repetition compulsion’ notes that once we have been emotionally traumatized (and conditioned), we may unconsciously seek to repeat a similar trauma in the future. Essentially, what has traumatized an individual earlier in life, if unresolved, will often revisit them again in similar future circumstances.
