An open letter to my overthinking self


I know what you feel, and I know what you are thinking.

It is really hard to erase the things that our mind is endlessly repeating. Whether it is a mistake, a wrong move, worries, anxiety, or no matter what it is.

I can’t seem to eradicate the repeating images on my mind that sometimes my body and my mind are become affected. I overthink too much that sometimes I cried in the middle of the night.

To be honest, sometimes the suggestions to shift your thinking to other things like a hobby, are not a long term solution for me. I will still back to being a girl who overthinks when the night becomes quiet, and when people fall into a deep sleep.

I think the best way is to accept and acknowledge that this is already a part of me, of what and who I am – that this is the flaw inside me that completes my true self.

Maybe one time, at the right time, after I accepted the fact that this is what makes who I am, everything will fall in the right place.
