I’m not very good at making mistakes.

Not to say that I don’t make them, cause hello! I make mistakes all the bloody time.

But you know there are mistakes that are… different from the others, right? When you make a real dick of yourself, firmly insert your foot into your own mouth, offend someone or just plain do something wrong.

I did that today.

Not that it was a big deal – really, it was pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things – and I was able to fix it quickly… but…


I can’t shake the feeling that I mucked up.

Do you ever get that feeling too?

Logically, I know that everything’s okay, but you know; it’s still lingering.

I’ve sat here for a bit and visualised wrapping it in brown paper, tying it with string and putting an end to mulling over it… but it hasn’t worked!

Got any tips on how to get over myself??

  1. absolutely – it is one thing I am working through with my psych because feeling like i have messed up or done something ‘wrong’ can mess me up for days. And when the thoughts become really consuming? I watch something that scares the pants off me so I’m too busy in my head being scared that i don’t have a chance to think and torture myself. It sounds ridiculous, but its what i do. LOL.

    1. I’m working on the other end, that constant fear that I’m ABOUT to do something wrong, say the wrong thing, and people will hate me for it

  2. I do it all the time!!
    If I can’t shake it, I lock it in a safe, throw away the key! In my head of course, but I put it in the vault because otherwise I obsess over it and it does my head in.

  3. I hope you have found the solution.

    And then written an e-book.
