Confessions Of An Over-thinker

What would you deem as a normal response,
To a simple string of words called a thought?
You’d say not to ruminate on it like chewing gum,
Just pull the plug and go have some fun.

But what would you do, if your restless mind
Decides to shift into maximum overdrive?
What would you do when your mind scouts for faults
Or unnecessary nuances in little harmless words?
In short, what situation or emotion would you be in
when your mind actively participates in idiosyncratic treasure hunts?

I can tell you, it ain’t no fun at all.
It’s not silly when your mind dances to imaginary tunes,
Played by the silhouettes of doubt, insecurities or stress.
It is in fact, rather troublesome
When all you want is a quiet, peaceful day.

If that doesn’t soothe your curiosity, then picture these wretched thoughts
Haunting you when you’re on the brink of sleep.
Is a solid eight hour sleep too much to ask, dear brain?!
Or do you enjoy seeing me cringe at vague memories at inconvenient times?
In the end, you can’t help but wonder:
What is it like to have a mind filled with pin drop silence.
You sometimes watch the fortunate ones with envy,
Wishing you could go about your day with a calm and co-operative mind.

Sadly, we learnt the bitter truth the hard way:
No good comes out of ruining yourself with irrational thoughts.
Whatever may be said and done, you cannot change the past:
Except to stop fueling it with excess attention.
Anytime that pesky little voice starts to eat away at your brain,
Just snap out of it and move on.

Trust me when I say, that you’ll be fine
You’ll feel splendid and light-weighted along the way.

I have a confession to make: Silver Stone is a certified over-thinker. You heard me loud and clear, I am one of these specimens. I guess I became one when 8th Grade came along, or somewhere within that timeline, and it’s sadly stuck with me since then. What’s my new year’s resolution, you ask? It’s basically to stop doing this. Hope I can get through this year without relapsing into this mode every chance my brain gets πŸ˜…

Now that’s over with: enjoy some of these over thinker memes!

  1. Same, sister! Overthink everything SO much. I even overthink before picking up a call or replying to a message from a friend. That meme is me with all my awards for overthinking. 😦

    1. I thought I was the only one when it came to overthinking before/after sending a text on certain occasions. Glad to see that I’m not the only one guilty of this 🀭

      I’m glad you could relate to this poem!
