Considering the latest meaning of this "纠结" has changed from its original gist in practical use, I would prefer "dwell on" for its cloest translation. For instance: Do not dwell on those you can't change, just accept and make peace with them; I'm still dwelling on if I should go and confess to her about what I feel for her.
