Overthinking ruins you.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your thoughts? Do you find yourself caught in a distressing cycle of overanalyzing your thoughts? Overthinking is a prominent characteristic of worry, rumination, and obsessive thinking.
If you are an overthinker, here are the things you need to know.
The problem is rarely the problem
99% of the harm is caused in your head, by you and your thoughts. 1% of the harm is caused by reality, what actually happens, and the outcome.
Most of the time, the problem isn't the problem. The way you think about the problem is.
Don't think you deserve that opportunity? Apply for it anyway. Don't think your article is good enough? Publish it anyway. Don't think they'll reply to your email? Send it anyway.
Never overthink yourself into self-rejection.
Silence and time
The truth is, most problems aren't solved with more thinking, they're solved with less. You'll find most of the answers you're looking for in silence, in time, and with a clear mind.
If you can't solve a problem, stop trying to.
An important question!
When you start criticizing yourself for past mistakes, or seeing disaster around every corner, ask yourself:
"Is there anything I can do right now to change the past or to positively influence the future?"
If the answer is yes, do it—take action!
If the answer is no, be at peace—let it go!
You have to action or let it go, everything else is self-harm.
The power of now
You're not going to overthink your way to a better future. You're not going to overthink your way to a better past.
All you have is now!
And what you do with "now" can make right of your past and make good of your future.
Make peace with yesterday, let go of tomorrow, grab hold of now!
Fact check your own thoughts
Your thoughts will create scenarios in your mind that reflect your insecurities, fears, and worries.
So, it's important to always fact-check your own thoughts before accepting them, because, in highly emotional situations, your thoughts will tell you stories that aren't true.
Fact check yourself!
Acceptance is peace
No amount of anxiety will change your future, no amount of regret will change your past.
Peace is found in acceptance! Accept imperfection. Accept uncertainty. Accept the uncontrollable.
You don't have to understand, tolerate, or even forget something, but if you want peace, you must accept it.
Health starts in your mind
True health is measured by the quality of our thoughts and the peacefulness of our minds.
Stay safe and healthy! God bless!
To a better you!
