Ruminating Self Talk

“If only I had said…”

“Maybe they didn’t mean…”

“I could have…”

After a conversation, we replay it back with our commentary. But why?

To improve for next time? Sometimes. To worry unnecessarily? Most of the time.

It’s not serving us. It’s a judgmental habit that keeps us spinning in a loop. You said what you said and that’s all you know for sure.

Life goes on into the next moment. Be there for it.
