PERSONAL | SOMETHING TO OVERTHINK ABOUT



When it’s late at night and I’m in bed, my mind usually goes all crazy. I overthink A LOT. Really, it’s a problem.

Last night I was thinking about how big this world is and how small I am. What a little speck I am in the grand scheme of things that happen all around us. It’s quite scary for me to think about. Do I matter in this big world? How can I make a difference?
Yes, I matter to my friends and family, but what if that’s not good enough? It’s good enough for me to be happy and content. It’s good enough for me to want to stay alive. But is it good enough to mean something for this world?


This might sound a bit airy-fairy to you all, but just think about it. Not in a negative way though, just try to take it all in. We are all individuals in a big, humongous world. That world is placed in the universe and there’s a great galaxy surrounding us. Maybe some light years away there’s another planet just like ours, with people – or aliens if you like – worrying about their makeup and hair. Think about it.

Does it really matter when you have a bad-hair-day? Does it really matter when you mess up at work once? Does that bad grade really matter? Does that fight with your best friend or boyfriend really matter in all of this? No. Probably not.

I sometimes think “If only I never had to worry about anything”, but then, do I really have anything to worry about anyway? Are the things I worry about really significant in the grand scheme of things? The answer is no, probably not.

I don’t even know where I was going with this post, but I felt like rambling so I did. I guess I just wanted to tell myself again that I shouldn’t overthink. I shouldn’t be such a perfectionist and I should just let everything be as it is. Stop worrying. I’m hardwired to think too much, so it’ll be hard to let go, but I will try to put everything in perspective. And I hope you do too. <3

Lots of love,

Laurie
