We all have been through this phase, at least once, where we find ourselves stuck in a situation and start worrying or overthinking about the future. I am one of those people who overthink a lot, and my brain never shuts down. I overthink extreme case scenarios, and then I become upset. I know this isn’t a great thing to do.
My brain always has something or the other that it’s planning. Of course, we must’ve all come across people who would say relax you got this. But honestly, that’s not something I prefer to hear. Because at the end of the day, I still have to deal with it and make a decision.
Preparing for worst-case scenarios
The phase you’re stuck in could be trying to let someone go, healing from the heartbreak, accepting that sometimes people leave and you can’t force them to stay, worrying about your future or family, dealing with mental health issues, and the list goes on and on. Everyone has their struggles and we can’t compare them. Overthinking doesn’t solve anything but for some, it may be a mechanism to prepare them for the worst-case scenario. Everyone wants to be happy in their life. But without setbacks, we can’t always be happy.
If we don’t fall then how will we learn to stand?
It’s the same if you don’t fall- how will you know how capable you are to pick yourself up?
To everyone struggling out there, I am sorry for what you’re going through. I hope you find a safe space to share your emotions. I’m saying you’re not alone, because I am just like you.
You’re not alone!
You got yourself even if you’ve got nobody to rely on. You’re enough. And most of us don’t have our life figured out, and that’s okay. We will eventually work on that. The process might be slow but we will get there. Sending love to you all.
