Stuck

By    

To overthink means to think about something too much or for too long.
But what they don’t tell you is that overthinking is sleepless nights and breathless lungs.
Overthinking is not eating even when you are hungry.
Overthinking is that little voice in your head that keeps your anxiety ignited.
Overthinking is the anxiousness you feel in the pit of your soul.
Overthinking is the exhaustion that causes those dark circles and bags under your eyes. Overthinking is fuel for the depressive episodes.
Overthinking is the headaches that never seem to go away.
Overthinking is the chest pain that feels like a thousand pounds are pressing down. Overthinking is the creation of those scenarios that make no sense.
Overthinking is the burden that creeps up when it’s time to stand tall.
Overthinking is the devil on your shoulders whispering you aren’t good enough. Overthinking is the overwhelming sensation to run away and not look back.
Overthinking is the burning desire to shut your brain off completely.
Overthinking is the impulse to stay hidden like the sun is a disease.
Overthinking is the words flowing onto this screen without effort.
Overthinking is a power of the mind that I did not ask for.
Overthinking is the root of the evil I battle within myself.
Overthinking is a never ending battle... I refuse to lose to again.
