I am supposed to think, and process complex thoughts
I tend to spend my time thinking a lot
I weigh the pros and cons of every issue at hand
I try to ensure that I completely understand
The situation before performing an action deliberate
For most decisions I’ve had time to pre-meditate
If I seem to come to a conclusion quickly
It’s because my experience has helped me
Arrive at that point, not because I’m in a hurry
If I don’t think through things, I’d make mistakes, I worry
As I grow older and acquire some worldly experience
(Including a pandemic that brought changes intense)
I realize I tend to overthink frequently
It’s not meticulousness but anxiety evidently
I suspect from a platform of fear I operate
I think if unknown variables I eliminate
From a situation by examining it as a whole
I would be able to maintain control..
But no amount of overthinking can
Predict a curveball, a black swan event
Sometimes overthinking and over-rationalization
Can also lead me towards an erroneous decision..
Maybe I should not always think as much as I do
Go with my gut feeling, listen to intuition too
Not everything in life follows rules defined
Therefor rather than overburden my mind
I have consciously decided to not think a lot
Go with the flow, pair intuition with my thoughts..
One thought on “Overthinking”
What a dilemma between those who tell you to ‘think about it’ and others who say, ‘don’t overthink it.’ What to do???!!
