Glad to see you posting more, Lainie! I know it's been a few months.
I LOVE the message and introspection here. This reminds me of how often we overthink. Even this morning, I was telling my mom how exhausting it is when I question myself, on even the simplest of decisions. I think of the outcome, how that could have been better, and I scold myself for not trying every second of the day. But I can't live like that. I have to accept I'm human. I'll get upset, I'll make mistakes, I have to let go and stop trying to go back and indulge these ghosts and demons each time.
This was so thoughtful and I really connected with it each read-through!
It is so true, we are own worst enemies constantly overthinking about the could of's, should of's etc and then guilt tripping ourselves for the decisions we did or didn't make. I hope you are able to let go of the ghosts & demons that keep you chained :)
