So much noise, there's silence


Ever have so many thoughts zipping around your brain that it all just coalesces into one big blank. Yep, me too. When this happens, I have to just brain dump by writing down every stray thought and then figuring out if any of it is important, worth writing about, worth talking about, or just some of Le Random Garbage that floats through my mind. In the meantime, tomorrow and Friday we have collaborative posts. Come back by and see what I mean - it's going to be fun.

Until then, stay warm & let's keep it Bougie out there. Show of hands, who's an overthinker?? An uberAnalytic? Is "contingency plan" one of your favorites phrases? Are you a listmaker? An outliner? A "wait a minute, let's talk about this first" person? Fess up...

I need to be an overthinker. I tend to take the first thought, act on it and then double back with an "Aw Shit. That wasn't my best idea." I go with my gut, leap before I look. Hey yo, does Dr. Jayme have an online support group for that?

I am an overthinker and a social worker which means I can spend HOURS thinking about something, then I want to have a meeting to process my thoughts about the things that I've overthought and then schedule another meeting to actually talk about the things that I overthought....I need medication probably.

Member of "Overthinkers Anonymous" raises hand.

I am the uber in uberanalytical!! My current task is to find the space between my head and heart, particularly in relationships.  I cosign Riley, is there an online support group? 

Jennifer said...

overthinker and listmaker here... mainly to have less regrets later.  *shrug*

"Overthinker and wait a minute, let's talk  about this." Life is a conudrum, what can I say.  Will sign up for Jayme  online session as soon it  is up.

Worse than over and under thinking - I'm inconsistent. One time I'll dive in, next time I'll stick a pinky toe in the shallow end. It's frustrating. I'm working on it.

Ms. LTB said...

Overthinker here.  Ditto on uberAnalytic.  Also guilty on the procrastinator tip although that's not on your list.  Hate outlining and rarely make lists.  As for the "let's talk" it depends - some things are better jumped into than talked about and vice versa.

Reecie said...

yes to all of the questions... definitely guilty.

*raises hand* I had a therapist one time that called it "busy brain". I'd say that's accurate.  Can't stop, won't stop.

I can totally relate. I'm always analyzing or re-analyzing a situation, work, life. Not even in my sleep, does my mind rest. Mental lists, tasks, bank account, etc all running around in my head. You'd think sleep would be the repreive...

CaliGirlED said...

Ditto! Sticking my pinky toe in now. (Keep on and the pool is going to be drained and shut down!) Le Sigh

Over thinker, sometimes to the point of no action.

I will play out an entire conversation in my head, only to be upset/disappointed/hurt when the real convo does match up. One day I'll learn.

JoyGrooves said...

I just go for it. And then once I'm in it, I start making the lists. Le Joy Shrug.

What's the saying - Act in haste, repent at leisure?
Directly at odds with - study long, study wrong.
Just do you, girlie.

Bones anyone?

Guilty as charged, on all accounts. LOL

Chronic overthinker, hands down.  I weigh the hell outta some pros and cons before I'll make a decision, because each and EVERY time I've just jumped on in, I suffered in the end.

Brneyed1 said...

So glad I'm not the only one who does the "whole conversation in my head" bit.  I've gotten so deep into the convos in my head, that I think I've actually HAD the conversation for real, and never actually talk to the person IRL!!  Guess you can figure out how that turns out...

Rhenewal said...

Sigh. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in this.

bashowell said...

Ditto

CaliGirlED said...

Let's all join hands and sing Kumbayah!

CaliGirlED said...

EVERY TIME!

GammasWorld said...

Overthinker except when I'm not.  Yeah, that's pretty much how it goes in real life too.  Le damn sigh.  I'll be attending Dr. Jayme's online group.
