Do you keep a mental list of all those times you’ve screwed up?, can you actually feel your guts twist every time you live through that memory again?
This song captures that feeling for me, having to rewatch certain screw ups from your last years and worrying about it; we shouldn’t worry about it, I’m one of those who learns from (most) of his mistakes and I rarely repeat them, but why do I still feel my guts freeze?, maybe I’m worried that I’ll fall to it again, maybe I don’t trust me enough.
It probably depends on the subject but one think I know for sure is that you can perfectly let go of those ideas that “define you”, for instance if you were always a shy person and that has led you to not live your life to the fullest you can simply remember that yesterday you were (for example) a Shy Person Level 10 and today you’ll try to get to Level 9, but it’s not easy. It won’t take a week for you to considerably decrease your levels of whatever you believe your problem is. Time is key for a lot things and you can make your mind believe something else entirely. Basically fake it till you make it.
