The term “rent-free” is often used to describe thoughts or concerns that occupy someone’s mind excessively, without payment or justification. When someone says a particular idea or person is “living rent-free” in their head, it means they are giving it undue attention or mental space. This phrase is commonly used to highlight when someone or something has a lingering impact on an individual’s thoughts.
This is very common amongst social media users who watch reels day and night. There can be plenty of thoughts or content living rent-free in the mind.
“I can’t believe he’s still upset about that comment; it’s living rent-free in his mind, and he won’t let it go!”
