Over-thinking Can Ruin Your Day

we often want something so badly that we ruin it before it begins by overthinking - Copy


Did you notice the lack of an anxiety-ridden post? There wasn’t one because yesterday was great! There was nothing to worry about. When there were HR paperwork problems or I had questions, everyone was extremely helpful and understanding!

I wouldn’t say I “ruined” it by worrying, but I lost sleep. Next time I face something new (like working with the kids in about a week!), I hope I’ll remember this. Things could go wrong, but I can’t fix something imaginary that occurs in the future. I can try my best and deal with problems as they happen.

Have you had a similar experience? If yes, what happened? Did it help you over-think LESS in the future?

First Day!

Starting something new is hard. I suppose it is hard for most people. I’m anxious that people will think I’m inept and stupid. *deep breaths* Time to put all these positive thoughts into action! Fake it til you make it.

I’ll update you at the end of the day. I know no one here cares about my complaining; people are understandably interested in the positive posts. :p However, the reason I revived this blog in 2016 was to sublimate my urge to vent about excessive worry and maladaptive behaviors to family and friends because those conversations bugged them. So please bear with me. Talking to you often helps get that out of my system, especially when people comment because then it feels like someone hears me.

Anyway, have a good day!
