I don’t process negative thoughts as strongly and deeply as in the past. I am able to stop the tornado inside my head. I don’t go down the rabbit hole as quickly or as deeply, nor for as long. Whatever “IT” is does not consume my days. I am not perseverating on the past. I concern less about what others think and judge. I am no longer worked up about the ex or others in my past. I see the positive side and am thankful that I am where I am. I no longer feel abusive toward myself for my choices. At the time I chose them they were appropriate. I can talk about events in life without crying or feeling bad about myself. I no longer feel a need to justify my choices.
