I see myself doing this after big parties, interactions or even meetings. I feel the need to discuss certain points that are bothering me or stuck in my head. It’s almost a need to resolve the issue and put it away. It’s easier with another person (it’s often my wife), but it can be done alone as well.
Just recognizing this helps me move on mentally and put certain things to bed will help me. I know that I need to “close the book” on things that were mentally taxing so I make it a point to debrief after events like that.
I really notice it after big family parties when lots of activity takes place. I feel better and much more at peace if I have a chance to discuss what happened and put it to bed.
