I think that one of my fundamental issues is when it comes to dealing with society is obsession. I seem to become obsessed over everything!
For example: last night while going to sleep I overheard two neighbors say during some discussion: “Kind of expected that to happen.” That is all I heard. I have spent all day now thinking of what the implications of those words are. Every scenario that the conversation can fit into and any reactions I should take in the event of each individual action. This obsession leads to great anxiety.
Do any of you experience this problem and if so is there some kind of trick to thinking about things that one has no control over? Something to get me through to long term sobriety?
