I am a deep thinker


I process information deeply. I do plenty of reflecting on my experiences — more so than other people. Unfortunately, this also means I am more prone to negative overthinking. Sometimes I obsessively play events over and over in my mind or spiral into anxious thoughts.

It makes sense that deep thinking almost always equals overthinking. I tend to over-analyze my actions and behavior. I find nonexistent mistakes, failures and flaws, and blame myself for those. The truth is that I can often be too hard on myself. This makes me focus on the negative and worry too much about insignificant things.

Overthinking is another thing that can prevent deep thinkers from believing in themselves and succeeding in life. A person who is too hard on themselves tends to overlook their strengths and talents.
