How To Deal With/stop Overthinking?

How To Deal With/stop Overthinking?

All I do is overthink, everything. From accusing my boyfriend of cheating to overthinking my own decisions. It's just pushing everyone away I don't want to feel like this anymore but I'm trapped in my own mind. Does anyone have any advice or ways to stop overthinking please???

I over think all the time. I've learnt to accept it as a part of my decision making. Its a process I have to go through I've lived on my own n raised a child alone so I've had to look at things from all angles. It makes you kinda para tho cos you consider allsorts of rubbish! Be secure in the knowledge that your boyfriend loves you just accept the over thinking for what it is just your brain trying to figure the situation out if you can laugh at it it kinda lessons the over reacting to the over thinking! Swings n roundabouts darling xxx

you need to try and break that pattern dont let it rule you... i know what you mean its almost like an OCD thing of think and rethinking a situation.. try do something different when those thoughts come, for me i always say please God you have this in control i leave it with you... go do something to distract yourself... it will become a habit. so each time a negative thought try distract yourself with a task .. dont be a slave to negative thoughts you can change it but it is actually like you have to practice thinking right again.. hard but its is possible
