One of my biggest challenges is letting go of the past. I tend to mull over each mistake or difficult situation over and over to figure out what went wrong or what I could have done differently. Not that those things are bad per se, but what I am talking about is DAYS of re-running the past in my head, to the point that I am missing out and ruining my present. I am not sure of the clinical term for this unhelpful thought pattern, but that is what I do. All. The. Time.
This causes much anxiety and leads me to unhealthy overeating. Big Problem.
One of my goals this New Year is for me is to work on this, and stop doing this so much. I will stay more in the present moment and look and MOVE FORWARD. I can't change the past so there really is no point in dwelling there.
