Nessie Posted January 11, 2011 Report Share Posted January 11, 2011 I read a response in a post from someone else about always dredging up the bad experiences...and it kind of made me stop.I guess I already knew I was doing this but I guess I wasn't as conscious of it as I perhaps could have been.Basically I could sum it up as reliving painful experiences over and over in my head, not letting myself forget these experiences. I don't do the same with positive experiences, if they happen, they don't really last and are forgotten.Why would I do this? When I think about it logically, it doesn't make any sense other than it could be a negative strategy used to keep myself unhappy?Any ideas on why someone might do this? Any ideas on strategies for unhinging this thought process? I'm thinking I'll try to make a list of good things and keep it on hand to remind myself. Maybe that will be helpful?
