Ruminating over a particular topic is generally unhealthy. You’re better off thinking about it once (such as when you’re journaling, writing down your thoughts, then leaving it be. There’s little value to be gained by obsessing over something for too long.
- Most of the time, nobody is thinking about you. You are not as important to others as you think you are. In all likelihood they’re too busy thinking about themselves, just as you are thinking about yourself.
- It’s impossible for you to know what someone else is thinking. Even if they tell you what they’re thinking, you can’t guarantee that they’re telling you the truth, or even the whole truth. Because you can’t know, you’re better off assuming what they’re thinking is good.
