Does anyone have any tips on how to start looking forward rather than being constantly obsessed about things that have gone wrong in the past? I have this ridiculous memory for everything that's gone wrong in the past and these memories can be triggered by the most seemingly inconsequential things, things that weren't even central to whatever the problem was but just happened to be there at the time so my brain has logged them as something associated with a negative. It's that extreme. They're not even big, significant events. Quite often they're just little embarrassments or irritations too. I know in theory it should be easy to say forget about these things, you're wasting your time, there's nothing you can do about them etc but I just can't seem to shake this thing about dwelling on every little negative that's ever happened. Any tips?
