Well... for past few weeks I was struggling with memories of some troubling events in my life. No matter what I did I was unable to stop thinking about them and this almost drove me insane. I was unable to forget about them and more I try to resist more frequently they come.
Until I finally realized the root of my problem. Somehow instead of forgetting about that events my mind was trying to convince myself to find something positive about those memories, maybe to make them less daunting or whatever. I realized that was the main problem, there wasn't anything at all to feel positive about in those memories so there was no way to make them less daunting at all.
So, what I did to get rid of them? Nothing at all. I just accepted my dislike/hatred for those events and then I started to feel better. All of the sudden those memories become less painful and I began to feel my sanity recovering once again. So, I figured that instead of trying to find out something positive about a daunting situation, accepting your true feelings about that helps a lot.
Please pardon my grammar mistakes if you've seen any.
