Overanalyzing Things | How To Deal With It?

I'm pretty sure we are all struggling with this from time to time in one way or another. I'm definitely one of people who do it often. Not in a way, that I can't do things, just that I think about certain things too much. I'm a kind a person that likes to analyze everything from psychologial aspect: why is someone acting like they are, whats the background behind the whole story etc... Same goes for analyzing myself. I will go deep in everything even if there's no need for it. Sometimes it's really killing me. It's making me feel insecure. Imagine you are doing alright and you are subconsiously making yourself feel like you have some problem going on and you are over analyzing everything. It's going that far that you are feeling bad, but you don't know why or what you did to make that happen, because everything is just fine. Sounds a bit confusing but I hope you get what I want to say.
The reason I wanted to share it with you is because I found a few ways to deal with it, so I wanted to share it.
Talk about it! Support system is everything.
You need to talk about it! Your sister, brother, friend, boyfriend, anyone who you trust 100% and who's opinion matters to you. I don't think just to mention it, but to talk about it for real. Say what is bothering you, what are you overanalyzing, ask them if there's really any need for it. It helps so much. I like to talk about it with my sister or boyfriend and I always feel so much better after that. Write it down. After talkin about it, I like to write things down in terms of letting them go. Write about how you feel and whats bothering you. Next thing I would do is write a list of things I'm grateful for, from big to little things. Everything. I know all of this sounds silly and maybe cheesy, but it really works. I feel so much better after it. You need to let it go. I mean it, you really do. As I'm writing this, I'm telling it to myself as well. Over analyzing things won't help you in any way. You can't change situation that has happened and it won't help you by over analyzing it. In general, overanalyzing will destroy you and won't help you by any mean. You must control your thoughts. This one is very close to the one above. You need to learn to control your thoughts. To tell yourself you will let it go the same moment it gets on your mind to start analyzing things. It's just a matter of practice. It's about putting yourself in a situation that is uncertain and being fine with it. That leads us to a next step. You can't predict future and that's fine. All of overanalyzing and questioning yourself is because of fear of uncertain and unkown or because of what other people may think. You need to learn to live in a moment, to let go of all of the If's and analyzing things. Let go of the worries and train yourself to think positive. Stay positive
Controling your thoughts and staying positive Is I think the most important thing of all. Controlling your thought is some kind of habbit, you just get use to it. At first it is hard, but it gets easier and it doesn't mean you don't care about something or someone if you don't overanalyze it. Remember that!

  2. These are great tips! I always overthink things and I try to follow the same things - I like to take deep breaths and let it feel as if it is all washing away. Kind of like waves. I think positive thoughts and it usually helps!

  3. First of all your blouse is gorgeous!
    I needed this post because I tend to overthink a lot of things. I think too much and it stresses me. I hate it. I've learned that writing helps me and catching myself in the act of over analyzing helps me as well. I'm learning to let go, and it's a life long journey but I get better each and every year. Thank you for this post!

  7. I know exactly what you're feeling here. I go through the same bouts of overanalyzing a problem from time to time too. I love your tips here for dealing with these negative feelings that often hold us back. Truth be told, certain situations are harder to let go of than others for me. With those situations where I know I can't just forget about it, I try and honor my feelings by allowing myself to feel them and usually I find after doing that I feel much better. Sometimes I just need to let it out and have a good cry and then I can get over it.

  8. I love this post! First of all, you are beautiful, and second of all, I can completely relate. I definitely think you do have to let things go. If I spent all day over analyzing things, I would be crying in bed 24/7. I think your tips are spot on and can help any one has gone through this or who is currently struggling with this!
    Thanks for sharing!

  25. My fiancé is notorious for overthinking things, so I'm going to let him read this post. I've been telling him some of these same things you said and he still does it. Maybe seeing it from someone else will make him stop doing it. Great tips babe!
