הייתי חושב translates quite literally into I would think, which doesn't fit here well. היה + present participle can express a past habitual, repeated action, but I can't think of any circumstances where it works with something continuous like "used to think". Sorry if I caused a confusion...
P.S. בטירוף / בצורה מטורפת for "insanely" are quite fine here
Now I know that the truly hard thing is sometimes to forgive oneself.

The Hebrew translations usually don't insist on preserving the past infinitive
