“Do you find that these days where you blame a person or the situation happening often? Sporadically? Everyone is entitled to a bad day, and it’s perfectly possible that you’re just having bad days here and there, but if you feel like these negative episodes are becoming a hindrance to your every day life, you may want to speak to a doctor.”
@Sapphire def not a hindrance. More like a cognitive distortion I have noticed within myself. Growing up, did you ever watch the cartoon Doug? Every time Doug found himself in a tough situation he would imagine the worst case scenario playing out. For example, Doug liked Patty. Doug would imagine himself asking Patty out and something embarrassing or terrible would happen like she says no, or he trips over his shoe and then the whole school laughs at him. Right before difficult conversations, I tend to experience Doug type of thinking and that’s exactly what I was experiencing dealing with my boss3.

I overanalyze a lot of situations when my mood is not right, but it’s okay. [/quote]
I def over analyze. My brother used to say I overthink things. For me, meditation and physical exercise have helped me keep my overthinking in check for the most part.
