    Overcoming My Over-Thinking Mind

    I do over-think a lot of times. I think too much of anything and of every little thing. I analyze people's words which I really hate. I used not to be like that before. Over-thinking can gets me to be upset and crying, it makes me think that the other person hurt me while they...

    I have to stop thinking everyone expects

    something of me. Something seriously odd is going on in my head where I feel like I'm lacking in all aspects and letting people down. My therapist told me to realize I can't keep everyone happy. Ok. I get that. But I can't stop myself from feeling guilty if I don't at least try...

    I think too much. I think ahead.

    I think behind. I think sideways. I think it all. If it exists, I’ve ******* thought of it.

    To My Detriment

    I overthink everything. I analyse things people say to me, wonder what EXACTLY they meant etc. It's making me neurotic. I HAVE to stop!

    Social Awkwardness (among Other Things)

    I am about 21 years old and I attribute my Dad's mental abusiveness to my social awkwardness... I resent him for it. All throughout my childhood he would confine me to my room without any sort of entertainment or adequate reasoning. I was once grounded for a year and had no idea...

    But it just runs through my mind and I have to think about all the possibilities!

    Every night before I fall asleep I wonder

    if anyone is thinking about me.. You know how sometimes you dream with a special someone? I wanna know if there's a special someone who dreams of me ... Is that possible.. I don't know but I will probably think about it before i fall asleep.

    Okay so when I was 13 I lost my virginity.

    I knew I wasn't ready at the time but when he asked me if I was sure I still said yes. I felt like I had to say yes. But I was so nervous I didn't even move while everything happened and it was 2 years ago but it still bothers me. maybe I'm just overthinking it.

    Absolutely everything.

    I'll miss a day of school and I'll worry what my friends thought. What my role call teacher thought. Am I in trouble. Will I get a detention? Did I miss a test? Or some important information?

    I Hate Over Thinking.

    Every little thing I over think, and it kills me. Being left out. Being lonely. Single. Thinking I have bad self esteem. Needing a friend. All of that stuff i over think, when I shouldn't.

    What did I ever do so wrong

    for you to treat me like this? Was it staying up all hours of the night? Was it getting a job so I could spend time with you? Was it giving you everything you've ever wanted? Maybe it was me being there when no one else was? You treat me like crap when I'm the only person who's...

    Ugh. This brain of mine.

    So, yesterday when discussing with a new doctor about some options to deal with some troubles I have been having, she asks, "Do you intend to have children?" I respond with, "No, not really." and she says, "Yeah. I didn't think so, but I don't want to assume anything." And now...

    I overthink, it truly is my specialty.

    No matter what, my mind eventually drifts off into different directions. One part of me wishes to do one thing, while the other knows it might be wrong to. Whether it is about something as basic as what to eat or what work to do, or if it about something that completely changes...

    I feel like life is just waiting.

    We find things to entertain us while we wait. But really we are just waiting until we die. Yeah we go to school and get jobs, but it's all just to pass the time. We are going to die. We will no longer exist. There is nothing that is going to stop that, we are just waiting for it...

    Story of My Life

    EVERYTHING is processed over and over in my head before I do anything.  Because of this I am always the slowest person at just about everything.  Sometimes it comes across as meticulous which is nice...but often it just seems that I'm indecisive.

    To be honest, it's actually the worst.

    Everything you do, every choice you make, will come with these negative thoughts that pollute your mind and keep you from wanting to do things with no regrets.

    Every little thought can be followed into

    I love to analyze and overanalyze things. It just makes everything so perfectly difficult! Maybe that is why math is my least fav subject in school. I can have an intellectual conversation and turn it into a complete mess. I love it!

    We all have the little hidden dark corners to our minds. Such beautiful minds, but they can also be our worst nightmares. All they seem to create sometimes are constant battles within ourselves.
