I have always been a ‘deep thinker’. Ever since I was small I remember thinking and worrying about the smallest detail and the ‘what ifs’. I try to predict the outcome of every action I take, every decision I make is turned over in my head a million times. I do it so much that I am fed up with myself in a way. I try and hold the reigns on my life so tight it almost stops me from moving in any direction.
Today I was wondering if this is something in my nature or my personality I can’t change, or if there is a way for me to throw caution to the wind and take some risks? I always play it safe and always consider others before me. Is this something I can learn? How can I change that part of me that is stopping me from stepping out and becoming the person I could be?
