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 emotions are intangible things.  It's frustrating and stressful. It hinders me from making any moves in romantic relationships because I'm unsure of whether the action is justified on my end. I'm afraid that maybe I'm just leading myself, and the person on, and that by instigating moves myself, I'm setting that person up for heart-break.

i can empathise completely. Its gotten to the point where i dont know how i feel anymore. I analyse each and every one of my feelings and try to self-diagnose, and i come up with these crazy explanations- which may not even be there- and then i start believeing them and thinking "well if i didnt really feel this way, this thought wouldnt pop into my head would it?"
