21 thought-provoking quotes about overthinking

QUOTES ABOUT OVERTHINKINGToday I thought it might be useful to explore some quotes about overthinking.

Few things can be more debilitating than the power of our own thoughts. In fact, life’s hardest battle is often with the thoughts going on in our own heads.

Negativity infects the brain like weeds taking over in a garden.

We overthink, we worry and we talk ourselves into believing that somehow we’re not as good as everyone else.

We think everyone else is sailing through life without a care in the world, whilst we see our own lives as less than satisfactory.

Then we talk ourselves out of trying things because we worry about what other people might think.

We allow our ambitions to be constrained by the limits of how we think we’re perceived by others.

Somehow we think it’s reasonable to accept their perception as fact, rather than challenging ourselves to be all that we could possibly be.

Our lives would be a lot better with more doing and less thinking. Pursue your dreams regardless of what others might think.

So today I’m offering you 21 thought-provoking quotes about overthinking to underline my message.

And remember this; no one’s life is perfect.

As they say where I come from, “You’ll be a long time dead.” So stop thinking, start doing and make sure you enjoy your life whilst you can.
