If only thoughts had an off switch. Overthinking is a never-ending battle.
“I’m not going to rush anything. I’m not going to stress out or worry about how things will work out for me. Instead of overthinking, I will align my faith with divine timing and trust that everything that belongs in my life is making its way towards me right now”.
Something I struggle with daily is overthinking I have no idea why I analyze every single thing from bad things that have happened in my past to some decisions that I did or didn’t make, and my future becoming successful is on my mind constantly. I think way too deep then stress myself out with what’s happening in front of me on top of what’s being created in my head. It affects sleeping I used to say “I can’t sleep because my brain never shuts off”. I will drive myself so crazy with these obsessive thoughts that I’m not even focused on reality. I’m so far gone into past experiences that still haunt me today. So many things I wish every single day I could’ve done differently that would’ve put me in a different position today.
I will tell myself that I can’t dwell on things I can’t change, then right back in my thoughts. I think a lot about the loved ones I lost over the years how different my life has been without them. It’s even harder being trapped in your thoughts when you think of traumatic experiences randomly you’re placed right there you can feel exactly how you felt during that experience and bring back so many emotions you never wanted to feel again.
