“We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.”- Anthony Hopkins
When you see the term overthinking in the dictionary I feel like my picture should be right by it. Because if I’m the queen of anything it has to be that. My overthinking is so bad that I could spend so much time overthinking why I overthink.
As you probably know already overthinking can be really bad. I’d like to say sometimes it’s a good thing. I feel like my habit of overthinking plays a lot into my creativity which is the thing I love about myself. If I had to name one thing I love most about myself it would have to be that I’m a creative person.
However; overthinking has also been one of the worst things in my life. It’s like one little bad thing could happen to me and my mind could make it way worse than what it actually was. Or I could be in a great mood then think of a bad memory and just keep thinking about it until the point I’m in such a bad mood.
And don’t even get me started on the “what ifs”. The what ifs are the worst because you over think every bad scenario that could happen in the future. What if I did this? What if this happened?? What if the same thing happens?
Overthinking can really be either a gift or a curse. Depending on how it is used. I want to challenge you all today to try to stop overthinking the bad things in your life and focus that energy on things that matter. Focus your overthinking on things that will benefit you not hinder you. Use it’s power for the good instead of the evil.
