What is dwelling.
In the dictionary, for the meaning I’m referring to it says:
– to live or continue in a given condition or state
– to linger over, emphasize, or ponder in thought, speech, or writing
I usually think of dwelling as negative. It implies obsessively thinking about something that won’t change anything and for no good practical reason other than to satisfy our need to beat ourselves up, which is counterproductive. I’ve always said, the world has more than enough people bringing us down, for us to be doing it to ourselves. We don’t need it,… but apparently we DO need it.
Do we need to rehash thoughts and memories, to beat ourselves up? To prove to ourselves over and over why we were wrong in one way or the other.
