Writing these kind of posts always feel really therapeutic to me. It’s like I have all these thoughts jumbled around my head and putting them into words on a page makes me feel better about things.
With all that in mind, I wanted to talk about over-thinking.
This is something I’ve done forever. So much so, it feels natural to me. It was only once my other half said ‘why do you even think about these things’ that I realised that maybe, it wasn’t a good thing!
If I’m anxious about a certain thing coming up, chances are I will lose sleep, predict what will happen and imagine dramatic scenarios for about 2 weeks PRIOR. What a waste of useful energy to harbour.
AND then went the actual event comes up? I’ve built it up SOSO much in my head that it feels about 100x the thing it should be.
Don’t get me wrong its SUPER hard to stop old habits, but lately when thoughts have been appearing about my anxieties, I’ve STOPPED, took a deep breath and tried to live in the moment. After all, this present moment is the only thing we can be sure about! <3
I’m not perfect at it, but I’m trying.
Do you suffer with overthinking?
