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:
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.
