    I was always like that.

    I think it's the combination of my overly active mind that literally never gives me one moment of quiet, and the fact that I tend to be pessimistic. As a result, a lot of my thought processes consist of worry and doom scenarios about things I have no influence over(yet or...

    I care a lot. Probably more

    than I should. I don't try to be, or mean to be nosey. Just curious and want to know where someone will be just in case they disappear.

    Worrisome.

    Seriously. I spend more time worrying than anything else during the day. If something doesn't go according to plan or if it is working I still worry about the outcome. This is probably why I sleep a lot; to forget my worries if even for a few hours.

    Oh, I'm a constant worrier,

    no doubt about it. My mind constantly moves at a million miles per hour. But as strange as it might sound, without worry, I'd probably feel strange and would probably worry about not having worries.

    so I can't help it when I worry. I'm also extremely analytical so I read into things too much and then freak myself out. I hate worrying all the time though. It gets old.

    I don't why but I keep on worrying about things,

    unnecessary things too at that. It seems kind of funny to people at times, but I just can't seem to stop worrying and the worst part is, some of my fears actually do come true.

    And just floods of thoughts come crashing in. I sit and worry. I worry about what I have done so far and the goals yet to accomplish. And then, I worry some more. And more. Over-thinking everything--or that's what people tell me.

    You ever send something to someone

    and IMMEDIATELY regret it? Not because of what you said but because of how the person might take it? I could've Phrased it better and honestly, even then it could have been taken wrong.... But I know where the path leads..... regardless of what happens next.

    I worry a lot, about almost everything.

    I'm in college and even though I do well, I still stress out over exams, projects and papers. There's a sense that I can't do it all, but at the end of the day, things get done. I also worry about how I look to others. Worrying all the time really does take a toll on you.
