Brain dump: 29 thoughts that have crossed the mind of an overthinker

1. I need to lose 10 pounds.

2. Do I look better in this filter or that filter? Level 3 or 4 Valencia?

3. No way am I posting a #nofilter.

4. What did she really mean when she joked about how insecure I am?

5. My folks don’t love me as much as they love my sister – believe me.

6. OMG why does she keep looking away whenever I start to talk?

7. Have I done anything wrong to her? Let’s see, there’s probably that time when … or maybe it’s that time when … and that time when …

8. I don’t understand. We instantly clicked from day one, but she takes forever to text me back.

9. She probably has more than enough BFFs in her life, and I’m just disturbing her.

10. Don’t you see? He likes her, not me. He mirrors every move she makes.

11. Ugh, I hate myself.

12. What’s wrong with me? *makes a painstakingly detailed account of all the things you think are wrong about yourself*

13. If I do approach him, I’ll kill myself.

14. He’ll think I’m desperate.

15. What if he doesn’t feel the same way?

16. Great. This humongous pimple had to pop up just before the big date.

17. I’ll have to be a Victoria’s Secret supermodel in order for him to ever notice me.

18. Should I go with this dress or that one?

19. I shouldn’t have gone with the blue one. *makes a mental list of all the details of what could have been*

20. Am I looking too much into things? Probably not, because you have to see every aspect of the situation in order to make any decision at all.

21. But really, what’s the bigger picture behind this situation? I can’t seem to figure things out.

22. How do I make sure I keep everything under control?

23. I mean, what would my future self think of me?

24. It’s frustrating that I have no concrete idea where I’m going to be 10 years from now. There are so many holes I’ve yet to fill in my 10-year life plan.

25. Like … what if I fail?

26. Or, what if I succeed? How am I going to deal with the money and fame that comes from it?

27. I’m not done tweaking this thing. It needs to be perfect before everyone sees it.

28. Yes, perfect.

29. Well, what would other people think?

 
 
 

Note to self:


JUST. CHILL.

Like this hedgehog does.

Now you tell me what’s been keeping you up all night, because I’ve probably missed a thousand and one other thoughts that aren’t on this list yet.

Some mothers are kissing mothers
and some are scolding mothers,
but it is love just the same, and most
mothers kiss and scold together.

(Pearl S. Buck)

 


 

Today is Mother’s Day here in Indonesia.

On the other 364 days, I often think I will never be good enough for her when in reality, she just wants me to be safe, well, and happy.

I may only count the number of times she’s kissed me with my fingers, but there have been countless days when she’s showed me she loves me in every other way.

There’s never a moment – not a minute, not a second, not even a nanosecond – that she doesn’t care.

So get this: Moms scold because they care. If they don’t, they would’ve channeled all her time and energy for something (or someone) else other than you.

 

 
 

Selamat Hari Ibu everyone.

You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary
to encounter the defeats, so you can
know who you are, what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.

(Maya Angelou)

 


 

RIP, Maya.

Be softDo not let the world make you hard.
Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let
the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may
disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

(Kurt Vonnegut)
