Ever been into a situation where the moment’s gone, but you’re still gambling with it in your head and beating up yourself about it.
Okay. You try to confront with the inner you and shout, STOP !!!, but somehow the thought still comes back to scare you. Damn this over-thinking.
Does this happen to you often? Surely this has got you into many funny, awkward, embarrassing situations. Wait, before you think further for the solutions to overcome this, just make sure if your are really an over-thinker,
Here are the 5 things that says and proves you are an over-thinker :
1. Boiled red blood.
Ever caught yourself in a situation where you are sitting and looking at your beautiful garden and suddenly you feel angry with a red face? And for completely no reason. That’s the time when past overruled your present. You were just thinking of the wrong things you did in past.
Hey! You’re in the present. And present is beautiful. So just be. Forget about the past, it just gives you high blood pressure.
Ok, think about it. What if, today, you lose it all? Everything that you own. Just picture the situation. You know what I think? You’ll have nothing to lose, it’s just in your mind, you’ll still figure things out. It’s just that you are focusing on the things that are never going to happen. Don’t stress your today by over-thinking.
For what exactly? So try this instead- make an effort not to be apologetic. That way, you’ll be sorry ONLY when you’ve really wronged someone. No need to give people that upper hand.
4. Decision making power.
Make your own decisions, for God’s sake. You’re an adult. You’ve been here for the longest time in your life. You don’t need your parents or siblings or friends for the smallest of decisions.
Whenever you decide something, you feel less confident and try to find someone’s shoulder for the support. Stop it. You over-think and reduce you confidence. Just make it in one shot. You are always right. Believe.
5. See the hidden meanings.
As long as playing Sherlock is fun, you’re good. But most times, people say things but don’t necessarily mean them. And then there are also the kinds who’d say things just to get you doing what you do best – “over-think.” So you can be busy with your thoughts while they move ahead in life. Yes, people are evil like that. Even more reason for why you should just not care and get on with your life.
