If you make a habit of stringing soft string that you cannot push through, it would be a good investment to get one of those finder awl that you push through the grommet and then you put the string within it and then pull it back out string and all. TW has them for sale. Another option is to put a piece of scrap string (from the previous job that you cut out) looped under the strings at the shared hole locations that you can use to pull down the blocking string. Then you pull down on the string with the scrap and push your new string through without any issues (almost like the grommet isn't blocked at all). When you're done, you simply just pull off those scrap pieces and that's it.
