I love this question. I experience this too. I don't know why it happens, but it makes me think of my therapist asking me to journal things. Writing my feelings out helps to really get them out of my head. I feel like that's a positive outcome of the same thing that happens. There's also the interesting studies that have shown that if you write something down, you're more likely to forget it, knowing that you've written it down somewhere else.

Part of it might be the newness has worn off, and newness itself is a vibe, an energy, and you have that extra inertia I think.
