    Pretty upset at myself.

    I keep over thinking things, and creating problems that are not there. I realized how annoying I seem to my guy friend I have talked about in a different experience about. I realize how chill I could have sounded but me over thinking things all the time I sound super annoying...

    Over Thinking Hurts. -.-

    I spend a lot of time alone, and since i rarely talk to others, I think... and think... and think about absolutely everything and anything. Most of the time, I question things about others, religion, beliefs, overall life and the future. I think about the past and why bad things...

    Why do I always over think everything I do.

    Like I create stuff in my head and then I start to believe that it's true. Life, family, relationships, I wish I didn't over think so much and could feel happy not just say I'm happy. I know I will be once I stop over thinking every damn thing :(

    Ha, Overthink Much? I Nuke It.

    Back in the Navy we had a term for over-thinking something, and that is "nuking it". I heard the expression often. A shining example is the following math problem a shipmate showed me when we were chilling in starbucks one afternoon: 1+2= 5 3+4= 25 5+6= 61 7+8...

    Why do I have to cross examine my thoughts?  Am I afraid of something.  Am I afraid to be me?  I analize my thoughts, question my motives and scutinize my values.

    Way Too Much

    ...of course there are times when the mouth just opens and out comes the bad but most of the time I'm thinking what would happen if I did this? Or that? or maybe the other? I'm a freakin' mess today! Brain is deep fried!

    It drives me insane. I cant just accept things

    I'm always looking for a reason behind it and assuming that things are directed to me e.g tweets or fb status. I get the need to ask them if it really is about me or for me but I know I cant do that everytime so I dont. I am also very doubtful about things it usually takes about...

    Everyone that knows me well says this about me.

    It causes me to have anxiety and insomnia. I hate it, and wish I could tell my brain to shut up.
