Who lives in the past or the future? Where do I live?
As I am getting older I have found myself reminiscing a lot. Happy memories and sad one's. That's not so bad. Although in recent years I've come to terms with the more frustrating, if only that hadn't happened, memories. I have a much better understanding of why I did what I did, so these memories are not so much of a bother as they were. So perhaps this is why I am less depressed these days? Do I live in the future? I still get quite anxious when I have something coming up that I find difficult to do. It doesn't dominate my every thinking moment, but it's there dangling in front of me or buzzing round my head like an annoying wasp.
I think it's quite natural to have regrets about the past and have anxious thoughts about the future, especially when there is some difficult situation on the horizon. So I try not to beat myself over the head when I think I "should" not be feeling the way I do, or think the thoughts I am thinking. I am sure a lot of "normal" folk feel and think the same, but do they "dwell" on these things as much?
