    Hi everyone. So I was best friends with these

    I Over-analyze My Feelings

    I constantly wonder if what I'm feeling is really what I'm feeling or if I'm just lying to myself. I have no idea how to fix that problem. At all. I tell myself not to over-analyze, but the question is already there, and I have no way of absolutely finding the answer as...

    I drive myself crazy overthinking

    and overanalyzing every situation and relationship in my life. If I don't hear back from people quickly, I immediately assume that I did something to make them angry or to screw something up. It keeps me up at night sometimes.

    All The Time!

    Absolutely anything that anybody says to me, I'll overanalyse it. Even comments on this site, actually. I can dwell on things for weeks when, in the end, there was really no need to have done.

    I Fight It Though

    If someone says a specific thing, i think and analyze it for hours and hours, without reaching any conclusion... >.> sometimes being like this is pretty bad. But some other times it's kinda good.

    High Rpm

    I've improved over time but still think and analyze more than most. Analitical for sure, but time and burnout has forced me to slow down a bit for self preservation. Times of waking up with solutions to problems the night before. My mind racing to analyze peoples's true...

    Too Much For My Own Good

    I used to over think and over analyze as well; maybe not as much as many people do; but still too much for my own good. Now I just let things be; I have no power over anything in my life so my over analyzing always led to depression.

    I Worry

    I worry about things. A lot. Whenever something starts to go wrong for me, I always imagine the worst case scenario. When things start going bad, I imagine them worse. I'll take things, and blow them out of proportion. I'll imagine far off possibilities that will most likely...

    I tend to overthink way too much.

    When i'm with the person i like (nobody knows), i overthink a smile, a hand gesture, a look which most of the time means nothing at all.

    Some might think that over thinking helps in

    finding various solutions to problems of great difficulty. Well, for me, over thinking is a problem. When a friend decides to act differently, I start to doubt that friend, even if they deny it. I'm scared that they'll find me annoying or worse. I'm scared that one day, they'll...

    Too Much

    It's stressful, but it's a habit. I cant just not do it and still feel normal or okay. I think it has become like a compulsion.
