  • There are many different kinds of cheeses!

  • You walk into any given grocery store, and there it is! The long, daunting shelf of cheeses.

  • There's orange cheddar, white cheddar, mozzarella,

  • parmesan, provolone, Colby-Jack, and the list goes on.

  • All you need is cheese for tonight's dinner, but this is turning out to be the hardest decision of your life.

  • If you can relate to this, or a situation less ridiculous but similar to this, you're probably an over-thinker.

  • Many of us are guilty of being over thinkers, and there's nothing wrong with that.

  • But here's a list of seven things that over-thinkers can relate to:

  • 1) Over-thinkers apologize too much

  • Before you're even sure if something is your fault, you're already apologizing for it.

  • This leaves you feeling vulnerable and exposed to more trouble.

  • Like for example, taking the blame for every situation may cause others to take advantage of you.

  • Over-thinkers tend to want to smooth over the rough patches, but sometimes it can cause more trouble than it's worth.

  • 2) Over-thinkers relive embarrassing past experiences in their heads

  • You tend to repeatedly relive the moments you are less proud of in your mind. For example:

  • Imagine that you're having a perfectly normal day.

  • Then your brain decides to remind you of that one time in middle school when you ripped your pants in gym class.

  • And just like that, your whole day is ruined.

  • You tend to relive these past experiences and imagine how it could have gone differently.

  • 3) Over-thinkers appear more insecure than they really are

  • Because of your indecisive nature, it may cause others to view you as unsure of yourself or

  • under-confident

  • This becomes apparent in working situations, because you take too long to make decisions for clients or projects.

  • 4) Over-thinkers have problems sleeping

  • When you lay down at night, your brain starts to process all of the information you learned from that day.

  • If you're a natural over-thinker,

  • your brain goes haywire at night trying to organize all the thoughts that you're having. You may lay down in your bed at 9:30 p.m,

  • only to find yourself wide awake at 1:00 a.m,

  • forming a plan of how you're finally gonna start going to the gym on a regular basis.

  • A study published in May 2003 states that there is a direct link between

  • rumination, or overthinking, and negative emotions and thoughts.

  • Sleep quality and depressive and irritated moods go hand-in-hand.

  • 5) Over-thinkers worry about making others happy

  • You often disregard your own desires for the sole purpose of satisfying someone else.

  • You may repress your own opinion,

  • so as not to contradict someone else.

  • You constantly make decisions based on how other people would react to them, rather than what is best for you.

  • 6) Over-thinkers always need a second opinion

  • It's hard for you to make a decision on your own.

  • You may spend hours in the department store, because you're taking pictures of every outfit and sending it to all your friends for their input.

  • It may be difficult for you to make even simple decisions without consulting an outside source.

  • 7) Over-thinkers spend time worrying about things they have no control over

  • Whether you like it or not, there are always going to be things in the world that you have no control over.

  • In fact, most things fall into that category. If you're an over-thinker, you tend to lose sleep over things that are completely and utterly uninfluenced by you.

  • It's okay to accept that some things are out of your reach.

  • Sometimes over-thinkers make their lives more difficult than they have to be. A study published in September 2008 titled

  • Rethinking rumination, states that there is a strong relationship between overthinking and mental illness.

  • Based on a person's proneness to overthink,

  • you may be able to predict the likelihood of that person being depressed or having anxiety.

  • Being an over-thinker can make you good at critical thinking, as well as sympathetic to others and their problems.

  • But there are many options out there to help stop you from overthinking your whole life,

  • if you feel that it's a problem. Try to put things in a perspective! Do some meditation or deep breathing!

  • Stop trying to make everything perfect, because that more than likely is never gonna happen! If you're an over-thinker,

  • try overthinking the good things in your life, rather than the bad!
