18 Things You Only Understand, If You Are an Anxious OverThinker

10. We’ll always wonder, if we’ve done something wrong and how to make it better.

11. In reality we just care a little too much.

We just care. A lot. Too much.

12. We’re probably perfectionists.

Who just want to do things right.

13. Our body may want sleep.

Because everyone needs sleep to function.

14. But our mind never does. 

But to do lists go off in our minds of things we need to get done. People we might have pissed off. Mistakes we might have made. Then eventually we fall asleep.

15. Even in our sleep, our dreams are things we worry about.

But there is no escaping the mind of an over thinker.

16. We hope things will go as planned.

Because over thinker just wants to avoid catastrophe

17. But anticipate the worst case scenario in everything. 

But we know things never go as planned, so we have a backup plan in the event it does happen.

18. But every over thinker has simplistic hopes. 

Texts answered quickly. A relationship that doesn’t leave us confused. And friends that accept us, and reassure our worries.

  1. As you can tell by my profile name, I’m a guy, and what’s more I’m a straight guy, and I’m finding more and more when
    it comes to matters of cognizance and/or personality types/disorders, it would probably be best in all of these wonderful muses and scholarly pages, to eliminate gender reference, because we are souls, and souls don’t have a gender, it is our mind, will, and emotions that make up our soul, so at least give it some thought and consideration, because imagine how many more can be enlightened, helped, learn to heal, etc., when male or female we receive the same unbiased love, light, and life.

  2. Nailed it. When it is woven into your personality, it is tough to re-learn healthier ways to respond and feel about those in our circles. Breathing exercises are working well for me. Illness forced me to let go of my anxiousness; I had to rely solely on others. Tough lesson but a good one.
