I Can't Stop Thinking

    If there was ever a real weakness of mine; it's

    overthinking. I will overthink to the point of being anxious and I do have a hard time keeping my mind on the present. It's the most annoying thing in the whole world. You think too much and you run yourself up so you can crash. Repeat the process over again. I hate it.

    I keep thinking a lot lately about the relationship I ruined for myself. You know the saying "you don't know what you have until it's gone", well I definitely understand exactly how that feels. I get angry at myself for the things I did and did not do, because thats why I am...

    I wish I could but I can't.

    Sometimes just not thinking about something is the best way to move through life. Thinking causes stress. And not thinking... Is just really hard to do.

    QUIET Up There!

    Why must it feel like I have a colony of high strung auctioneers in my brain? Constant barrage of thoughts some playing audibly to me always going off at the most inopportune moments.  These thoughts don't even pertain to what's going on with me!  That's why I've had...

    I Need a Break

    I don't have total control over my mind a whole lot of time. I've been trying my hardiest to forget my painful past and block out those negative thoughts, but my mind just doesn't allow me to. I can't sleep or eat well. My mood has been completely...

    I Overthunk It...

    I over analyze everything. Every word that someone says to me I think... Why... Why the **** would they say that to me... What's their motive? What is the meaning behind that one effing sentence? It drives me insane... It makes me create situations in my head that probably aren't...

    My Mind Is Always

    on the go.  I can't stop it or shut it up. If I'm not thinking about what I'm doing, it's what I'm going to do next, sex, smoke, food, sex, have I done this, have I done that, sex.... etc etc.. If I'm reading something I over analyze and go off onto a tangent and over...

    It's the only thing that keeps me awake at

    night. I wish my brain would just shut off so I can get some rest. I feel like this is more entertaining than most things in life though. It's amazing to think that you can think about anything and everything. Isn't that crazy!
