I try to recognize when I’m hitting that point, and take appropriate healthy steps. I can’t change the drought we’re having, but I can be mindful of water usage. Or, I can’t change Mum’s behavior, but I can limit my exposure. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply We “love” to fret over things we cannot change. Sometimes we use those as excuses for our situation.

LikeLiked by 1 person Your brain goes into overdrive about that particular stressful situation or about unrelated topics too? LikeLiked by 1 person Situation then unrelated topics. LikeLiked by 1 person Try rescheduling those thoughts. Whenever you catch yourself overthinking about unrelated topics, try telling yourself “This is not the time for these things. I’ll think about them tonight (for example). Now I need to figure out this situation.” LikeLiked by 1 person I’ve actually been trying to do something similar to that. I started reading this self-help book (I did a current read blog on it) and I got some ideas, and also a few of my own. For example, when I feel my mind wander, I start to make a noise with my tongue to kind of say…hey you’re here now be here now. It seems to do me good now, so hopefully it sticks.

I’ll try to be the first one that answers these questions 😀 Ok, for this, my answer is: I need to stop getting angry for situations I can do nothing about. I’ve managed to do it in some situations, but not so much in others, especially when I’m tired. It’s harder for me to control my thoughts when I’m tired. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ah, I see. Some people do become cranky when they are tired. I actually become giggly, haha! And, yay! Thanks for responding!

I think there comes a time when you just want to leave some heavy, unnecessary baggage behind and not give importance to what others may think of you, and just follow your dreams. That requires great courage and faith in oneself! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, this does require great courage and faith in oneself. But it’s also very rewarding. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply When I first read this question, my immediate thought was second guessing myself. Then, immediately after thinking that thought and strongly considering writing about that topic, I second guessed myself and figured that the thought was platitudinous. Second guessing myself seems to come as second nature, but only because I have allowed it to be for so long, so what is one to do when second guessing comes naturally, but you desperately want to break free from it? I think this also goes along with partially feeling a need to be externally validated, because for whatever reason, whenever another person tells me that my original idea was good, or reminds me of something that I already know or have already thought, I immediately deem it as the right answer, yet when I myself, outside of external validation, come up with a thought, I immediately doubt its validity. Anyone else out there stuck in this same boat? I’m only asking because I need to make sure that my thoughts are actually worthy of sharing. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’m also second guessing myself, but I try to make this my superpower. I use this when I encounter thoughts that make me feel bad. For example, if I talk to someone and that person uses a slightly high voice, my first thought might be that the person is mad at me for something. That’s when I question the validity of my own thought and I try to find alternative solutions for that situation. I try not to second guess myself when I’m about to do things that make me feel good. Also, I try not to second guess myself when I’m thinking about my strengths. Bottom line, I use this when I find myself assuming things that are not in my control and that make me feel bad. Does that make sense? LikeLike Reply That makes sense. I think I relate to that very much, but how do we discern when a situation is beneficial & strengthening ourselves or just simply feeding our ego. Ya know what I mean. I think it also has to do with how we feel about ourselves & our self esteem, but I feel like it becomes trivial & then I just opt for whatever is the consensus rather than what is actually valid & true. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes, but that’s another issue. It’s related to our core beliefs. So this is how I do it for myself. Whenever I catch myself thinking “I’m not good enough” or “I’m weak”, I question the validity of those thoughts because the feeling of a moment does not define our self. I do this also when I find myself judging other people. I cannot be that arrogant to know what other people think and feel so I try to second guess those thoughts. LikeLike I honestly don’t think it’s defined by judging others. But more or less trying to assimilate to others interpretations of myself. LikeLiked by 1 person That we should definitely second guess. The same principle applies. They did not live our lives so they cannot make a correct judgement or assessment about us.
