Overthinking






A while back Hands said to me "I don't tend to overthink things -- analyze things too much" and I remember sighing ........... 

cause the one thing I do really really well is overthink things -- analyze every small minute detail to death.

Not only do I overthink/over analyze things -- I then worry myself to death.  

Yesterday I was thinking/stewing -- and suddenly I heard Hand's voice saying "don't overthink".  Funny thing is I realized in that moment -- that he is not the first male to tell me that.  In fact I think every male that has ever passed through my life has told me the exact same thing.

Funnier thing -- I don't think I have ever had a woman tell me I overthink things.

Sooooooooo 

is it a woman thing -- this overthinking/analyzing ??? 

And if it isn't a woman thing -- someone know how to stop this overthinking??? cause boy oh boy I could use an off switch.

If there is a switch, I want to know where it is also...I am in this same over-thinking boat with you. It can drive me nuts at times.

I don't know if it's a woman's think, I sure know a heck of lot of woman that do. Maybe we men are more shallow, and don't think a lot at all, smile. What is better?

You are who you are. Love yourself. Obey the overthink command...
Good luck,
Han

I do this. My Sir actively tries to shut off my brain at times. I think many women suffer from overanalyzing. But I know a few men who do as well!
