I often hear people say, “Don’t overthink it.” when someone is mentally stuck on any certain subject. I never studied psyche so I can only tell my own experience. I’m an over thinker and I feel fine.
If you have a busy life you might feel like you have to decide anything right then so overthinking seems bad but if you retire you have time to reflect on everything and you can figure out a lot of your own life’s problems and the problems of others. Then you can learn from it and accept it. That’s when you get some peace in your mind. You have to go over it again and again in your head. until it goes away.
The same goes for small problems. Take your time deciding, make the better decision. Don’t let anyone rush you.
This kind of life I’m living would drive you crazy if you were an extrovert. I’m neither an introvert or an extrovert so it took a long time to get used to. Now I kind of like it. I’m free. And because my life is so simple I have endless inspiration and something else money can’t buy, intuition. It’s not ESP, it comes from trying to figure out whatthehell happened and seeing trends. Do you know what I mean? A person that never contemplates never gets intuition.
