Is there anything that doesn't spike a new thought? Anyways, I try to not let things get to me. However, that is easier said that done. I haven't tried hard enough or tried at all. I guess. Many times I have wondered if I only I could have tried or why do I give in. If I already know the answer then it is best to remind myself that I know it and move on. I know who I am and I have goals in mind. I wish I could just let the thoughts pass but it has been hard. Performing compulsions or doing research to find the answer is a temporary answer but the permanent answer is to let the thoughts pass and realize that not only do I have the answer, if I have one, but to remind myself that an answer isn't all to be all. I have had thoughts about a number of things, such as divorce, infidelity, racism, and scrupulosity. I have to realize when things get bad is that the thoughts will too pass. Wow. That is a whole lot of reminding.
