Sometimes I wonder, whenever I curse myself and lament the annoying tendency that I have to “overthink”, have I actually been overthinking, or have I simply been thinking…
Rarely are my thoughts ever obsessive or irrational (well at least they don’t appear to be in my mind!). They don’t really stress me out and there’s always an explanation as to why they’ve been triggered, they don’t just appear out of thin air, which in my eyes, makes them rational.
It’s more out of curiosity.
Does challenging the status quo by asking the question “why?” really make me an overthinker?
Often enough the concerns that arise from said thoughts of mine can be resolved quite quickly and easily.
So again I ask, is it really overthinking or is it simply “thinking”?
