We all have times when we labor over decisions, ruminate on embarrassing moments, and ponder our future. But if you’re an overthinker, these moments take on an exhausting life of their own. Even a fun trip to Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors turns into an Olympic event. Friends and family holler, “Hurry up and make a choice!” But you probably can’t hear them anyway over your own inner monologue.
For you, every choice and life plan is deep and vital, from your children’s school to your yoga pants. You see all the infinite possibilities and shades of regret converging in a single instant. And the inner debate never seems as loud and worrisome as when you’re trying to fall asleep. To all the exhausted overthinkers, we thank you, because you’re also the most patient among us and the people we most turn to for help when life gets messy.
