“can i ask you something?” my immediate reply says “go for it” but my mind has already gone through the seven stages of grief
ME ABOUT TO TALK IN PUBLIC: *rehearses what I’m going to say 50 times in my brain*
ME: today how you are
Isn’t it weird how we basically have an endless mental conversation with ourselves?
Ya she needs to shut up untexting
being self-aware enough to realize you’re being irrational but still not being able to stop anything
Someone: *is late*
Me: Were we supposed to meet at this time? Is this really the place we were going to meet up? Is it actually Thursday today? Were we even meeting at Thursday? Do I actually know this person? Do they really exist? Do I exist?
me: *overthinks everything and cries*
*5 minutes later*
also me: *sees funny post and laughs* oh okay im back
ME, FINALLY GETTING A CHANCE TO SAY SOMETHING I’VE THOUGHT ABOUT FOR TWELVE DAYS STRAIGHT: oh, hey, that reminds me, funny thing, this just came to mind but
*something little and probably irrelevant happens*
overanalyze and chill
Yeah um I already played out this confrontation like 10 times in my head so if you could stick to the script I imagined for you, that’d be great, thanks.
“you always overthink things” and now i’m going to overthink you making a comment on my tendency to overthink so i guess we all now have that to look forward to
me:*hangs out with someone for 3 hours*
me: oh hey, I just remembered I have to tell you something
me internally: that was a lie. I’ve been wanting to tell you all day but I’ve been too nervous to just say it so I’ve been mentally rehearsing for hours and
i overthink in #mycalvins
“why do you overanalyze text messages” to my credit i overanalyze everything, always, because i love feeling like i’m suffocating and everyone hates me, constantly, so at least there’s… consistency
i personally love to over analyze everything and suffer
me: please don’t panic and overanalyze things again
brain: how bout i do a n y w a y
My special talents include: jumping to the worst conclusion possible and worrying about that thing for hours.
sorry i couldn’t hear you over my internal monologue : /
Give me a few days to overthink about it
it’s kind of tricky when you’re a over-thinker and you are aware of it. at this point i’m so unsure about the conclusions i come up with. i mean, is it true? or did i make it up because i have been overthinking too much? am i right or has my overthinking fooled me?
i just realized i hit the next level; i’m overthinking about overthinking
a normal interaction but everytime i overthink it my heart beats faster
me: *about to send someone a message*
me: ? hey what’s
myself: if they wanted to have any kind of contact w/ you they would have initiated it.
me: alright, neat, neat concept, but communication is actually a two-way street so
myself: they have no desire to speak to you and never have any desire to speak to you, ever. they never think of you. they will never think of you, at all, ever, even in passing. you are nothing.
me, tossing my phone out the window: alright! neat! awesome! fantastic!
