  1. I do that too…then have to rein in my emotions and concentrate on not letting my imagination run wild. Good to know I’m not the only one. Thanks!

    I am very much trying to issue a re(s)training order on myself. Slowly, very slowly, succeeding.

    Love this! Thanks for posting it. I do the same thing far too often and have actually driven away some potentially good friendship/relationship prospects because of it. I try to catch it and stop myself before it gets too out of hand but I don’t always make it in time! 🙂

    I like the idea of a personal restraining order though – it really puts it in perspective. I may have to take one of those out myself! 🙂 Thanks again for sharing this!

    I enjoyed reading this. So much of what you wrote sounds so familiar. Maybe I need to try taking out a restraining order on myself too! Love the Ferris Bueller reference. Bueller, Bueller…

  7. It’s funny how many things you have to unlearn. I find myself questioning my husband’s ulterior motives all the time. And he generally doesn’t have any. And if he does, he’ll tell me if I ask him. It could so much easier to live with a mentally stable individual if my brain wasn’t constantly trying to convince me that I wasn’t.
