I'm kind of new in the QM world and I'm having difficulties understanding the superposition and the measurement principles together with the have function collapse. This is how I understand these principles:

Superposition: While not measuring, the particle is in a superpsotion of all possible eigenstates,

Measurement: While measuring, the particle can only be in one precise state. (in other words, the wave function associated to the particle collapses)

And here's my question: when we stop doing the measurement, will the wave function be "rebuilt" so that the particle will be in a superposition of states or, in contrast, will the wave function continue collapsed until the end of the days?

Thank you very much for your anwers!
