    Too Much Thought...

    I am guilty of over analyzing. No way around it, I guess it stems from seeing how things effect other things. Sometimes well most of the time I take it too far. I was not really picked on as a kid too harshly as some have but I guess I was always the fat friend, the fall back...

    It Keeps Me Up At Night.

    I've been like this for years. I've been told that it's because I'm intelligent and it's a gift. I've been told that it's because I'm hypercritical and to cut it out. I've left relationships and friendships because of it. I've lost sleep because of it. I feel like I've reached a...

    I Drives Me Crazy!!

     I have to admit this is a very bad flaw of mine. I wish it was easy as people say to just not worry about it. I think I am extreme. I will not go to events, if I think their will an occasion where i might have to talk with someone, not that I am afraid. I know me and I will...

    Considered a Curse

    As an over-actively-analytically minded being, I am subject to much torment from the ever skeptical and scrutinizing inner-monologue inside my head. Sometimes I wish I could simply take things at face value, instead of having them picked apart on an operating table by my...

    It Gets Too Much!

    I over think everything from the conversations I have to the way I dress. I will think over a conversation I had with someone, it may be someone close to me or not. I will tear apart every little thing I said or did trying to see if I said or did something wrong. I over analyze...

    I Cause Myself So Much Grief This Way

    I don't do this all the time, but I still do it too much. On EP, I'm no better. It's even harder to guess how I may be coming off, so I might worry even more. I'm worried about sounding like a weirdo and scaring people off. I'm worried that I'm bothering people too much. I...

    I know that I am hard to live with

    and expect my house to be cleaned and not just picked up, but how do I really convey it to my wife without blowing my lid? I work very hard and my wife does not have to work outside of the house and all of the kids are teenagers, but she only seems to have time for her horses...

    Christmas Morning

    Sometimes it's difficult to settle down and put things in writing.  At the same time, its the most curative way for me to process things (as otherwise I am often overwhelmed.)  I have been told that I think too much and hold onto thoughts and experiences...

    Crazy!

    I used to be nuts in reading everything too much. All the words, actions, looks on people's faces... I still do it, but I'm trying to remind myself that sometimes it's not necessary. If I don't have a strong feeling about something, then I try to let it go. I feel better this way...

    Gotta Go With The Flow Sometimes

    I'm guilty as charged with over analyzing everything. I believe it started when I started to be made fun of in school.  I used to be picked on for my goofy posture, my weird voice, my clothes, my constant daydreaming, my "perceived" stupidity and lack of...

    Mixed Feelings About This!!

    I sometimes feel grateful I analyze somethings better than others. I feel proud I could foresee things before others could- its empowering. Feels great!!And no doubt it saves you from a lot of trouble. But sometimes I just wish I could have the benefit of ignorance- at times its...

    A middle schooler asked me how I thought

    someone's fish could drown. I thought it was an honest question and explained that some sharks can't use their gills unless they're moving and so if they stopped moving they'd suffocate and technically drown. He then had to explain that it was a a trick question. It was pretty...

    Relationships, Or Crushes Even....

    I haven't had much relationship experience, but even with guys who I have crushes on, I take it waaaay to far. Most of the time my confidence is shot down because I psych myself out by thinking I don't have a chance and then when I'm around them I'm not as aggressive as I...

    Foot In Mouth

    Lately it's getting worse. I think too much and that's how I get into trouble, but when I'm talking to someone at that second I blurt things out. When alone I think too much and when in conversation with someone I don't think before I speak. Go figure.

    So I'm sitting in my room just staring at my

    walls and I look at these little pompoms I have from school pep rallies and I have 1 from 8th grade, 1 from 9th grade, and 2 from 10th grade. And I just start thinking of them as representing my social ness and how I've grown as a person. I used to get one but now I've gotten...
