Anyone here feel a rush of regret when you do something that's probably not really that big of a deal? For example, I'll probably regret posting this...especially if no one replies haha.
Ya I can definitely agree with that. Everyone's perceptions are different.Hi.
I used to, and at times still do but to a much lesser extent. It just got to be too exhausting worrying all the time about other people and their perceptions. So I think I went in the opposite direction and learned to become less interested in what people thought and more interested in what I thought. Its hard though when what others think impacts what you think of yourself.
I used to sit in a restaurant and feel like if I had a panic attack it would upset other people and how horrible would that be. Then I thought, with all the crazy things people do to other people in the world, having a panic attack in the midst of other people who may have had one at one point in their life seemed small in comparison.
I think it's a matter of keeping things in perspective. I still do really hate making big mistakes however. I ruined a big project at work this week by not saving my work and am beating myself up over it because the consequences are greater.
Yah, and their perceptions change often. So being in favor one day isn't really a guarantee. My ex bf's sister used to find fault with everything I said and call me out on it each time. I'd often regret stating my opinions while she was around since her annoying tendency made me feel embarassed for what I had said.Ya I can definitely agree with that. Everyone's perceptions are different.
If it helps, I see and care about what you posted.Definitely some of the time.
And I know what you mean even with the posting. Here, where all our "weird" quirks are accepted, I feel awkward like no one sees or cares about what I'm posting. So I usually get really uncomfortable and regret saying whatever I said...and try to determine whether or not to delete the post. I know it's absolutely ridiculous, but that's the way it is.
