Like many other highly sensitive people, I am prone to over-thinking. Worry was my constant companion for years. A lot of it was the after-effects of trauma. I tried to think my way through situations, control things even before they happened in an effort to protect myself.
Over the years, I have done enough inner work to find my way through that paralyzing anxiety and fear. But even today, over-thinking and worrying are a part of my life. The feelings are not as intense, but they are there. I know anxiety comes in many different flavors and for many different reasons. There are the illusory fears that my mind creates that I need to get rid of. There are fears that have a basis in truth. I need to see what they are pointing to.
