We have all been guilty one way or another of overthinking. You know when you are over processing the events that took place, the conversation/s you had that made you concerned or question what you said. You may have even wondered did I make sense? Did I say everything I wanted to? Will my words be enough to understand? Let’s take a moment to discuss, “Overthinking.”
Let’s be brutally honest about this subject, we may be that person that allows themselves to overthink too often. These are the times you have to come to understand and accept that you may have made some necessary choices whether in conversation, or in actions. You see, had you not said those things, perhaps you would not be respected right now. Had you not left where you did, you may still be battling things, God was showing you it was time to move on. Our obedience to God is of the utmost. We have to take control of our overthinking .
Overthinking can lead to anxiety, depression, a “never satisfied” sense, a constant questioning of ourselves, and even can lead to a lack of faith, if we are not careful. We have to stay aware of and become more mindful of the moments we are overthinking. We must recognize when we are ‘overthinking.’
Evaluating your situation and relationships are healthy. When we overthink, it could become an ungodly habit. You see, there are things that are beneficial as we weigh in on them. Take time to reflect on whether these things in your life are building you up or causing you to overthink too often. These cycles of questions can become a hindrance and can lead to constant emotional strain. The quicker you can recognize that you are overthinking the better it is for you overall.
Especially in these current times, become more aware of how you are evaluating things and if you have allowed yourself to overthink. It is a lot easier than we may recognize for us to develop this habit of overthinking and that is why I believe it is so vital we be honest about how we view things as a whole.
When was the last time you may have been guilty of overthinking? I know when this pandemic began this year, I found myself guilty of it. It wasn’t until I totally surrendered it to God that I regained true peace and proper perspective. God remains in control no matter what!
Let me hear from you. When you share, you are encouraging others too. Be honest and share when you might have been overthinking. Maybe it was pertaining to your family; maybe your job and finances; or perhaps it was out of fear of the current climate we are in. Share you story.
