I’ve seen it happen and it can be tragic. I know because I’ve been both a culprit and a victim of over thinking; I believe we all have. Sometimes, thinking things through carefully and intensively is necessary. Sometimes, it’s counterproductive. The struggle is finding that balance between need and needless.
I’m challenging myself to stop over thinking with help from a few of my closest friends. To think, yes, but not dwell. Kind of like teaching myself to see the forest among the trees. It can be easy to focus on details that get me lost or sidetracked. Only, I’m not interested in getting lost; I’ve grown accustomed to being found.
Question but don’t interrogate. Think but don’t over think. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Sometimes the only answer is to wait and see…
