OK i always over think things. It really dosnt matter what it is I will over think it. I will stand in the store with 2 similar items in my hand and read the boxes over and over again before making the decision of which one to purchase. If i am making a big purchase i will do research for day, weeks sometimes even months! I will look at everything there is and I will choose a few things to look into further. Then i will research about those products to make my decision. Anything to do with my son, I will over think big time! I am always talking about this and that and what would be the best choie for him. Somtimes i overthink things so much that i scare myself into making any decision at all. I hate when this happens. I like to make informed descion and think about the thing things...however sometimes I think it can be too muchn thinking lol. DOes anybody else over think things?

There was a time when I did this, and the only reason I no longer do is that I don't have time. My schedule is always over-booked, and there are many things I should be doing in addition to those I do. MyLot gets some of my time because I love so many of the people here, and I can use every cent I can earn. I visit a couple of other sites, too, but then I feel guilty because I should be working. I wish I could get things straightened out so I could return to over-thinking! Then again, it took me in too many directions all at once, so things could get really confused and frustrating!

I know what you mean, somtimes when you have too many things to do you simply don't have the time to think at all never mind over think. And you are also right about how over thinkin is confusing and frustrating. I also have this problem sometimes, and then other times it is great for finding deals, and making the right choice. I wish you luck in not having to be so busy with worK!!!!!

Yes I have also relized that sometimes over thinking is great....like when shopping, finding good products for good prices, planning vacations, even thnking about ways to handle things my son has done. But then there are other times when over thinkng things do not help me at all, but instead make things harder, and gets me more upset...so i can relate to what you are saying totally. Thank you for your response, and Happy Mylotting!!!
