I believe this to be true!
I think we all can get into our thoughts about something negative that happened. And when we do this, the ‘thing’ always becomes bigger than it actually is/was.
I once got into trouble for something I didn’t do and it was such a big deal to me. And years later when I asked those involved around this, they had no clue what I was talking about. It wasn’t even on their radar, yet I still had vivid memories and thoughts about it.
When you find yourself in pain over something, take a few minutes to figure out if it is real or if your thoughts are making it bigger than it is.
