It is always hard to comprehend the ways of an over-thinker. Some have labeled us to be insecure and uncertain. While others suggest we are simply frightful. The truth is that there are only certain scenarios we can paint in our minds. These struggles only belong to us and only we can understand them.
1. We know relationships can be challenging
It is tough to deal with others. Because most times they will never meet our expectations and really we do take their actions too seriously. Even if it was a simply innocent remark we put added meaning to it and we form more than a million explanations around it.
2. We worry a lot
We worry about almost anything. We think, juxtapose and imagine what the worst case scenario could be. We worry about the worst scenarios coming to life rather than the best. Such anxiety takes a toll on us as we try to search for possible solutions out of the mess our imaginative mind could put us in.
3. We plan more than we undertake
Our lives are centered on planning and paying attention to details. We want to fix it even if before it happens. We plan for the best. We plan for the worst. And at the end of the day we become disheartened if our plans are not acted out. Because really nothing happens the way we always thought it would.
4. We are sometimes labeled to as insecure
Since we are always thinking and worrying and planning, people start having issues with our lack of stability. It would have simply been better if we thought it out and accomplished what we planned out, but we are always thinking more than doing.
5. We are victims of our mind
At the end of the day our mind plays tricks on us and we are simply victims of an ever active brain. Our minds go through sad thoughts, philosophical thoughts, theoretical thoughts and sometimes scary thoughts.
6. We have it tough sustaining a relationship
This is for our boyfriends and girlfriends. It’s so difficult to date us because we are always over-analyzing everything that you have ever told us. Yes we love you or we have a crush on you, it is just so hard not to put depth in your every statement at us.
7. We just can’t forget
We hold on to every memory of the past as if it was some diamond necklace. We simply can’t let go and forget the past. Somehow we feel that it is the only mirror in making our present decisions.
8. We have to apologize for everything
Since we are always thinking and taking our self so seriously, it is hard not to apologize and let you know how bad we feel about an issue or a situation. Even when it is not our fault or we are not to blame, we just feel we have not reached a bar, and we have to tell others how sorry we are for this.
9. We ask ourselves a lot of questions
If something goes right or wrong we ask ourselves a lot of questions. For example if someone unfollows us on Twitter or unfriends us on Facebook we wonder what might have gone wrong. Such puzzles could keep us awake all night as one question could give birth to a thousand more questions.
10. We are always comparing ourselves to others
We want to always know why we are not first in the pack or doing a lot better than other people. It is hard to fathom our present circumstances as we always feel we should be right ahead. However if we are not meeting such incredible standards we are setting for ourselves we tend to look at the future and start anticipating for it in incredulous ways.
