Odd habit? I'm developing this obsessive habit of rereading things over and over...which would be fine if it's a good book, but it tends to be emails and texts messages that usually consist of either arguing with my partner or feeling insecure about a message I sent a client. I will seriously reread it 3-5 times in an hour, and often return to read it again a few times later in the day...and some of these emails are really long.
What the hell is wrong with me and why can't I stop doing this? I actually feel like it's getting worse. It's such a waste and I could be focussing on more productive ways to spend my time. Also, it definitely says that I'm living in the past, and not focussing on the present. It's not as if I'm proofreading these letters because they've already been sent.
Am I turning into some sort of a nutter?

I don't think it necessarily means you're living in the past (though, I guess if you feel it does for you, then it does for you). But it is a problem if you're feeling insecure about the messages you've sent (which you say you do. And you say the texts with your partner you reread are the ones where you're fighting). It sounds like you're just concerned about being misunderstood or coming across clearly and with the right intentions. I...will have to think on how to fix that. But it sounds like that's at the root of it anyway.
