    I know it happened for you, too.
    How do you get rid of thought you dont want to think about? Like actions, people, incidents that makes you sad or anyway, you dont want to think about it and its eating your brain.

    Do you know how to get rid of them? and focus? [​IMG]

    Think about every possible senario involving what you are thinking about?

    Meet up with some friends and hang out for a while. That surely would get your focus on something else.
    If no time for that, see if the DS Yoga game works in calming a person down.

    Play my PS3, that usually clears my thoughts and gets me focused on what I'm doing.

    O WOW ZEPPO WE NEVER GOT THANKS FOR POINTING IT OUT

    If you want to get rid of a bad thought, convince yourself that the thought isn't actually that bad, and eventually begin to question whether it existed or you just made it up. These are for longterm effects. For short term, play videogames.

    Has a 50-50 chance of making me paranoid instead... [​IMG] Not so sure that's always an improvement. [​IMG]

    It's not possible. The thoughts will always be there, be it in the back or forefront of your mind. It's impossible to great rid of them entirely. Watching TV to distract yourself, for example, doesn't work. It just makes it so that you're thinking about it while watching TV; thus ruining the show. At least, that's how it is for me, I generally have to wait for the thoughts to subside on their own. Also, I'm drunk right now, but you couldn't tell it from my proficiency in typing.
