There are times when our brains just Won’t. Shut. Up.
I remember in high school when I liked a boy it was all I could think about. It swirled around in my head all day and gave me warm fuzzy feelings inside.
As an adult, the things that swirl in my head aren’t usually so wonderful. Usually it’s something that I’m not supposed to think about. The stresses of adulting can be overwhelming.
I’ll lay awake at night, anxious about some thing that’s going on or replaying something that happened in the past. Like yes, I did say that really embarrassing thing three years ago, thanks for reminding me Brain. It’s terrible but these are the coping mechanisms that I’ve come up with.
