It's good that I'm writing this down. I fell into an overthinking cycle again. It threw me off for almost the whole afternoon. Thinking back again, it was such a small issue. It's the same pattern that occurred before.
Something that didn't bother me at first. But it's a slight inconvenience to someone else because of something that might be caused by me. Person tries to fix it, but I don't want them to because I made it happen. It's not a huge problem but I get adamant on fixing the thing to get it out of the way.
Yeah it's a bit hard to explain without the full context. But I get a bit obsessed over solving the issue before I can get back into something else. Maybe overthinking is not the problem, but anxiety is. If it's something I can't control, I get anxious over it. Usually I don't let it bother me, but if it has someone else involved in the equation, that's when I get more anxious.
I guess I just hate being an inconvenience to someone. I'm a people-pleaser. It's something I'm trying to work on. It's going to take time yes, but at least this awareness of it is the first step.
