It's You, Not Me
This is very true. We've all had our run ins with crappy people that make for crappy experiences.
I know I can get stuck going over and over again in my head what I should have said, or what I want to say to them, or imagining different scenarios.
I don't think it's bad to do this. It's part of our brains sorting out everything we deal with. The problem is when you keep rehashing the same thing over and over. It can be hard to get it out of your head.
I try to think, "I'm wasting my time thinking about this person that I don't really like. They are wasting my time. I would rather spend my time better." So I wad up the conversation and throw it away, smash it flat, burn it, or shut it out. Watching TV is better than wasting time rehashing.
Sometimes I have to do this a couple times, but eventually I distract myself with something else that's a better use of my time, energy, and emotions.
Don't be a crappy person, and don't waste your time thinking about crappy people!
Do be nice to others. Smile at people. :D Say hi and talk for a minute. It will make you and the other person happy. Then when people think about you, it will be time well spent!
