I have found that some people are more prone than others to get stuck in The Bad Thought Tornado; deep-thinkers, problem-solvers, dwellers, self-doubters or self-haters. Personally, I see my self as a deep problem-solver. I enjoy sitting and thinking of solutions to a problem no matter how long it will take. Plus, I don't let things go easily. Matter of fact, I have like the perfect combination to get stuck in The Bad Thought Tornado because there is no actual solution to it. Like I said earlier, digging for a solution will only send you deeper into the cycle. (In this case, x does not equal y. It's more like x-(y+6/55%) / 3= solution) There are only 2 things you can do to escape the Tornado.
Distraction- Clean your house or mow your lawn. Focusing on something else will temporarily remove you from the Tornado while you practice number 2.
Time- Things like trust and faith take time an insane amount of time to build. There is no quick fix for trust issues and you can't buy faith.
The Bad Thought Tornado doesn't want to see you succeed. It will keep you in the past and prevent you from progressing in your future relationships and your life. If it wasn't for my decision to leave my problem-solving ways (for this matter) and "just let go," I would still be trapped in a viscous cycle of thoughts that my girlfriend just cheated on me. Twice.
