Do you lie awake at night thinking about things? I know I do. I just can't seem to shut my brain off and go to sleep. I don't think about one thing and move on to the next, but instead I get caught in a repetitive loop. I think about things I plan to do the next day or how I want to approach something. I often think of Howard Hughes in his obsessive repetitive thoughts and going crazy. Now I'm thinking about overthinking.. aghhh.
What are you thinking about? Phillipians 4;8 ''Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.'' Thinking about what might have been, if?....it's a waste of time. We are to learn from the past, be and live in the present and prepare for the future.
Overthinking is probably a control issue. Wanting to do things right and with a plan in mind. That's okay to a point but intentions mean nothing if not put into action. Some thoughts need to be slept on tho to keep you from putting it into action.
