I have a bad habit and I can't seem to get rid of it. Which is actually the bad habit: I can't get rid of anything!
I constantly find myself brooding over things from years ago.
Like this thing I said on my first day at school that made a girl in my class cry. I still feel bad for her. Does she still remember? Should I have apologised? Even years later? I wish I could have thought in that moment a bit more. But I was 6 and it was all a bit much.
Or these things my parents did and said to me. All of these things. Or what I said back. And then I brood over them. Why did things escalate that way? Why did they do this and why did I do that?
I also brood and talk (way too much) about the things at work. I want to shut the door at work and leave all work-related things there, but they still swirl around in my head.
I still find myself being very angry at Certain Someone. Sometimes things just pop into my head and cause me to internally blow up about them. I know I'm still angry, because of this deep feeling of betrayal that lingers all over this relationship. But still, there's no need to brood about him, his doings or his children anymore. It's been over two years! Get over it already!
Why can't I get over things? It pisses me off!
How do other people do it?
I don't know how to change this, since I've always been that way. I don't know different. But after all this time of brooding about things that don't even really belong into my life anymore I want to get rid of this!
No more brooding!
