I know this is a common one. I know I’m not alone.
When it comes to the what ifs, it’s as common as the cold, and about as troubling.
What if? What could have been! Is it still possible? What if it happened? How different would my life be? What if I just… what if he… what if she… what if…
You obsess. You stress. You lie awake, thinking, what if, what if, what if.
Yet at the same time… you know.
(Not that you know what would happen IF – hence its stressful quality of NOT KNOWING)
You know you’re wasting time! THERE IS NO WHAT IF! IT DID NOT HAPPEN AND YOU MUST ACCEPT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED AND STOP WONDERING AND WORRYING AND WASTING PRECIOUS TIME AND BRAINPOWER ON A BLOODY WHAT-IF SITUATION!
Okay? Get it? Get it?
