I’m an overthinker.
I can be sitting in a room full of friends and still wonder if I’m alone.
I can be held in the arms of a lover and still wonder if I’m loved.
I can be offering advice to someone in need and still wonder if I’m a good person.
I’m a person that yearns for reassurance.
I like hearing ‘I love you’ and I love being invited to do things.
Maybe I’m greedy but I don’t feel like I hear those things enough.
Am I still overthinking?
Maybe I am.
All I know is that I feel so alone and so unloved and so unwanted sometimes that I think my head is going to explode.
How do I stop thinking that the world is out to get me?
Why do I set myself up to feel a heartbreak that isn’t really there?
Overthinking is my character flaw.
Amidst all of it, I know in my heart that I’m a good person and that I’m loved and wanted,
But when is the voice in my head going to stop telling myself otherwise?
