Why do I drive myself crazy by overthinking every last second of every day?
Why can’t I talk to someone without later going home and analysing my every word?
It actually hurts my head. I can’t just enjoy a day. It’s so flipping annoying. I was sarcastic today and now I’m at home thinking what if people think I was serious? What if I took it too far? What if the person it was about is weirded (aware this isn’t a word) out by what I said.
I think I know that people probably don’t even remember anything I said to them today – but still I drive myself crazy going over every step I made.
You know what’s even more frustrating… you can’t stop it. There literally isn’t a way to stop my mind from thinking all these things. Imagine if our brain had a switch and I could turn that part off. I imagine I’d have a lot less headaches.
It winds me up how much I overthink and it ruins so many things for me. I know a few other people that over think like I do. But I am so sure there are some people out there that are able to go through life without a care in the world and I honestly wish I knew how they did it.
Why is my own head trying to sabotage me? I’d really like to know the answer to this because I’m struggling and would like a way out from the constant noise in my mind.
