If you’re like me, I tend to think about everything I said, did, etc. and obsess over it. I replay everything in my head about 100 times to see what I did wrong, what others now think because of what I said or did (or maybe I didn’t say or do enough etc.) Unfortunately, this can cause so much anxiety that it disables me from focusing and getting my work done because I will be more preoccupied with everything going on around me.
Does this happen to you?
What does catastophizing look like for you?

    …An unending spiral of negative thoughts! It does nothing for me but it will never leave.
    I think this is normal, everyone does this to some extent, just on different levels and I think the depth of your experience depends on past happenings in your life.
    My way of getting around overthinking is to remind myself, “Don’t Stress it!”
