When I start to reflect on a particular day or moment, I always get way ahead of myself. I start contemplating what the other person is thinking or saying. It becomes all too self-engrossing. Seems awful narcissistic. Anyone else have these types of thoughts?
One strategy that’s helped is to stay in the moment; to be present. It’s thought-stopping. When I start over-thinking, I say to myself, how is what I’m thinking about affecting the here and now? Usually, my thoughts will realign.
