There is much strength in overcoming rumination,
And self-imposed negative mental states;

It’s difficult to see it from without,
Just telling yourself is never enough,

You’ve got to get your brain into a different mode, somehow,
With a change of activity, glimpsing another world,

But once you snap out of it and comeback to this world,
You’re all the stronger for it πŸ™‚.

    1. Thanks :). I’m just allowing myself to read as much as I like on here, at the moment. That’s always such a good thing to be able to do. The act of reading AND connecting. And the fact that I’m saying that, that I’m able to read as a way to re-center myself, wow, that shows how far I’ve come with those reading OCD problems!

      I could barely read because of OCD 6 months ago, not even my own poems, but it’s getting better gradually :).

      1. Thanks! :). The reading lasted until I got restless and wanted to write something creative, lol (about 10 mins πŸ˜†).

      2. Well more than 10 mins, but it was 10 mins after writing that anyway.

  1. I like the word you used to sum up this entire process and mental state.

    I used to be in a similar situation and but I had managed to get out of it. Some times I do find myself going back but never let it affect me for long.

    Best wishes from The Strong Traveller and have a great day

    1. Thanks a lot for the comment and encouragement! That’s hopeful to know that you got out of a similar mental pattern. πŸ‘


  2. I love this post. I, too, learned that ruminating over past hurts, etc., is self-destructive … a horrible habit to break but it can be done. πŸ™Œ
