(Over)Thinking

Somebody recently told me I overthink everything.

In a way, they’re right.

I think it stems from fear that I’m not enough, that I am somehow inadequate in some way or that I need the attention even from a negative place, as long as it’s attention.

That works in professional wrestling.  At least I’m getting a reaction.  But this is real life.  Doesn’t work here.

Sometimes you need to trust that people are saying what they mean, positive or negative.  Especially when they are calling you out on some, er, stuff.  Because sometimes overthinking gets translated as second-guessing–yourself or, worse, someone else.  That’s stressy for both parties.

So…that’s about enough of that.  Time to take advice and let that overthink muscle atrophy.

Thanks, you-know-who-you-are.
