It is very human to think of different scenarios when something happens, but dwelling on the negative ones can drain you. I dealt with this issue when I was younger but recently it has resurfaced....and obviously, I'm not happy about it lol. It has gotten worse though...like whatever thought I get, I believe it...like it has to be the truth.....and like 9 times out of 10 or just most of the time...I'm dead wrong. The difference between then and now is that I never communicated what I thought. I said this in a previous post, I tend to keep things to myself. So...I would think it, it will drain me but I never communicated it...usually what I thought was wrong anyway but it's like I didn't learn my lesson. Now, I started communicated them....and I always regret them because again...I was wrong. After a good amount of times of that happening, I started really pay attention to what I'm thinking and feeling....question myself if what I'm thinking really makes sense. This is actually why I started writing......when I got overwhelmed with my thoughts and obviously being wrong...I started writing out my thoughts then I felt better. I haven't done that in a while though, which is a good thing....but still learning how to control it..one step at a time.
