The 10 Stages Of Overthinking Overthinkers Go Through, Over And Over Again

It's a torturous process.

The 10 Stages Of Overthinking Overthinkers Go Through, Over And Over Again

When you're a person who overthinks, even things that everyone just brushes aside can cause you to think that you're going to mess it up somehow. Here are the stages that they go through.

1. Even the smallest things can make you so nervous

Like coming up with things to say in a text.

2. If someone does something that even slightly confirms your worst fears, you run with that

Especially if it's an idea that other people try to convince you is true, even though it may not be true.

3. Even if you didn't do anything wrong, (you don't think), you think you did something wrong

You think it must have been something you did.

4. You replay moments in your head and wish you didn't do certain things, even though they probably weren't a big deal to the other person

They probably don't think about it as much as you do, right?

5. You're convinced that people talk about you behind your back

Especially if people act a certain way towards you.

6. And you're convinced they say bad things.

This happens when you think you get along fine with someone, but the next time you see them they act totally different toward you.

7. You conveniently forget about all the awesome things you've did, or convince yourself that they don't matter anymore

They're just rendered irrelevant in that moment to you.

8. You convince yourself that you're asking for too much that you don't even deserve

Even though what you're asking for is perfectly reasonable.

9. You realize you didn't have to be as anxious as you were

It wasn't as big of a deal as you made it out to be

10. The whole thing repeats itself

This part is the worst.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
