    yup I do a 10th step every night (Google it) and during the Hebrew month of Elul I do chesbon hanefesh (lit means "spiritual accounting") which is where you look over the past year and make a list of amends you must make as well as sins and character flaws. It sounds grim but it's actually great to release that guilt and resentment most ppl have no idea how it feels, like dropping q 100lb weight

    Thoughts are just a bunch of monkeys in your head banging on drums.

    I like to be busy. No time to reflect. But we all have regrets. Would have, should have...........

    There's a distinct difference between reflection and dwelling.

    Dwelling is the devil.
    And reflection is something I do and the last place I'd come to talk about it is here. :D

    I know my good points and I'm painfully aware of my flaws.

    Every year as I get older, I try not to be as big an asshole as I was the year before. It's a goal I often fail reaching.

    I reflect fairly often, but typically it takes on the form of self-talk, and I try and either make some sense or learn from missteps taken. Reflection's crazy sibling is obsession, and if you're prone to obsessing over mistakes or missteps, I would focus on forgiving yourself and trying to be more in the moment you're presently in, rather than the past.

    I often think about all the broads I could've fucked if I had realized at the time that they would've let me. That kills me.
