Do you find it hard to shut off your brain? Do you get upset with yourself that you overthink to death sometimes?
You may or may not have realized that overthinking has a purpose and it’s not to torture you. Though it feels like that sometimes, doesn’t it !! As you read this, you will discover the real reason you overthink and one phrase that has the ability to stop your brain from going into overdrive.
Have you considered that the reason you overthink is to keep you safe. Fear of making a wrong decision, fear of being trapped by a decision. When you realize that it’s fear that drives overthinking, it brings a certain level of compassion for yourself, doesn’t it ?

If you say, same place, think again. Have you fully considered the consequence of loosing 6 months or 1 year in your life? I will let you ponder on that 🙂
