Wink Oh, Just Get Over It!

Hi everyone!

Whenever something bad happens when I ride, have a bad lesson, or actually do anything stupid in general, I always get hung up on it. I basically obsess over it and think "I can't believe I did that! I should have done etc. etc. etc." and it is pretty annoying for myself. Instead, I know I should just learn from the dumb things I do. I always beat myself up over dumb things! It probabaly isn't even that big of a deal, but I just feel like I messed up so bad! Anyone else have this problem?

I'm just kinda venting, encouraging words can make anyone's day though! =]

LOL I'm starting to see a trend in my posts. My obsessivness (is that a word?) is really starting to show through. And what's really funny is when I give myself my own advice within the post like I did here! Haha, I'm such a dork!

Thanks in advance!

Haha, sometimes I do that too! It gets really annoying, because you can like lay there at night thinking "oh my god, i must be half retarded or something...."

what i've found helps me is if you confess it out loud. no one has to hear it, lol, but just saying it/admitting it to myself helps get me over it.

I agree, just admit it so yourself and decide you will do better next time. have fun, and don't stress. We all have days where we wonder if we even have a brain.

Thanks guys! Yeah I bet confessing out loud would help. That's why I like writing about these little things on the forum because I get my thoughts out in front of me. =]
