People tends to say women often overthink compared to men, and it has been proven. I am not sure if that is the case for me. I feel like I am in the middle of it all. Half girl half guy? (Not a transgender) In terms of thinking. I shut down completely, cast out whatever thoughts that I do not want in my mind and find something to distract myself, clamping them down.
I realise it when I am thinking more than I should be and stop myself so I wouldn’t fall further through the deep dark hole of my own mind. Overthinking definitely make things worse, it-does-not-help-at-all.
