Is overthinking a good sign?

No it is not a good sign. Overthinking is the root of all your problems and it is considered to be bad. It usually exists when someone says something that reaches deep down onto your mind. It can be something good or it can be something bad but it stays with you. Somebody once told me in a state of my own misery and sadness that “Overthinking kills your happiness, kills your self-belief & kills your trust”. It was really simple to understand, it didn’t seem to have anything complex or weight to it, this simple phrase changed everything to me that day.

Whenever I find myself overthinking and drifting into a state of self-deprecation, I immediately look back at that phrase and I say that phrase out loud to myself until the truth of it comes out to my understanding. The most important thing I noticed from doing this is what the reason was behind the problems.

As you grow older and older, your regrets, your failures, your unwanted memories decides to pop up and you realize that your mind is your enemy. When you are alone, why does your mind ramble off to those untouched places of your mind?

Isn’t there anything we can do? How do you expect to live with all those troubled memories that sits in your mind? Well I have realised that life is not about looking at the past instead it is about moving ahead of that past. It is all about moving ahead, far far away from the bullshit that once troubled you. In order to be happy in life you have to learn how to live with the pain and that only BEGINS when you learn how to control your thoughts. Because your thoughts are which kills you or it is your biggest enemy. It’s not the words from others that have effect on us, but how we let those words affect us.

You MUST learn to stop overthinking at any cost. You may not realise it but it’s the silent enemy that will steadily kill your happiness. Worrying about what someone thinks of you will only keep you from the person you’re supposed to be. Once someone told me that “You should not care about what they say, you either be like them or just DON'T CARE and move on". This felt right because I did not desired to be like them at all. Your mind has this special ability where it will take you to places that should not have been gone into and this all depends on YOU.

What’s the point of wasting all your energy and especially time thinking about something which is gone and something which can’t be changed? Past is Past, what happened it’s over. Life is too short to be thinking about this kind of things. The moment you’ve finally accepted that nothing can be done and life will still move on, believe me YOU ARE FREE. Free from this negative thoughts that have captured you.

As you continue moving through life, you will encounter bad things, bad people around you and you must stop overthinking. I mean life is simple as it is, why kill it by overthinking? –Sakar


  1. this is actually really good! its like you are reading my mind cause i over think a lot!

  2. I know you are saying its wrong and I agree...You say we need to stop but how exactly? You might wanna add that on your next blog maybe?

  3. Yet again great post Sakar! I remember reading your "love or friendship" post, it has been a while, hope my comment made sense . A little more depth in this post would be like a cherry on top but it is great regardless. ( e.g of depth,personal anecdote is one great way to make anything profound) and also you could elaborate on some of your arguments "you shouldn't care what others say", how can people block those people off? and etc.
