The way I see it, replaying negative events, feeling, and thoughts become, simply, another habit; an activity with which we have become familiar and comfortable. Holding on to the negative feelings and past circumstances may have become a habit for you. Pick one day a week, and on that day, for every time you refer to the past, place in a jar a dollar amount with which it is not so easy for you to part. Whenever you find yourself kind of getting lost in the trance of mulling over the past, to snap out of it, you have to distract yourself.
Unleashing the wonder of our divine nature takes heightened awareness of the dynamic of our primitive nature. The third book in The Transformation Series, this sequel to Transforming the Inner Man and God's Power to Change focuses on relationships and events that disable us from being able to relate and communicate with others effectively.

And if this habit is controlling your life then it means that you unknowingly are taking direction from your AB. Get up, go outside for a walk, put on music from the present day, or do something creative (or work on your hobby).

Doing something for someone else, not only serves to distract your preoccupation with the past, but it also gives purpose to your present.

Even if the habits are self-destructive, this brain will force us into them because they are known, familiar, and strangely comfortable. I was able to overlook the parts that did not apply to me (a chapter on the marriage relationship - which could have helped me 10 years ago but not now) and stick to the sections that made me think about myself. The final chapter I perused but found its practicality wonderfully informative but dealt with issues I had already conquered in the same manner the author suggested a few years back. The author acknowledges that we all fall into the other two categories from whatever our overarching one is from time to time, but he wants to help readers understand how they process anger, depression, etc.
I do highly recommend it for anyone hanging on to a lot of old hurts and struggling to get past certain portions of their life. If you have 'stuff' back there that is hindering the here and now, then I highly suggest it.
The first chapters seem like they don't make sense but if you tough it through then it really works out.
