The harmful side effects of powerlessness don't stop there - the more anxious and self-focused we are during an interaction, the more time we spend post-event processing - ruminating about the interaction – even days later. I've mentioned this unfortunate habit of endlessly replaying and interaction after the fact, but what we know about the ways powerlessness and then anxiety impair our brains puts a whole new spin on it: the thing where ruminating about isn't even real – it's a seriously flawed memory of an interaction. We were so anxiously self-absorbed during the interaction that our memory of it is warped and full of holes. And yet we still obsess. We take that mangled memory and mangle it even further, ceaselessly running it through our rusty "What do they think of me?" filters. Unable to stop thinking about this situation after we left it, we remain frozen in time.
In a nutshell, anxious self focus makes it nearly impossible for us to be present – before, during, and even after a big challenge.
