In life many of us tend to overthink things. We worry about money, relationships, friends, food, clothes, etc. This is a normal part of being human. The problem is that our reptilian brains are still stuck in survival mode. This means that even when everything is ok, your brain finds new things to worry about. This is a mental problem that only you can take control of and fix.
I made this article because I have a friend who’s going through this exact problem. She’s stuck in an endless loop of worry.Once a problem is solved, her mind wanders on to the next one. First I recommended reading this easy to understand article on how to stop worrying. Here are 10 quotes that will help you calm yourself down and stop worrying. Enjoy!
