Am I Overthinking This?

“As overthinkers, we can wear ourselves out while trying to figure some things out. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. There have been many times when trying to find answers to life’s problems, whether for myself or another person. That not only did the answers come, but so much more. By never giving up, I was also able to find meaning and purpose in a world that sometimes didn’t make sense. A reward that I wasn’t looking for at the time, but one I still experience today, even when I’m worn out from trying to figure some things out.

I Find This Effective

“Sometimes the people who need our help the most are those with the ability to impact us in negative ways. But if we expect to be effective at helping them, we cannot let their negative and, often times, destructive behaviors affect us. The trick, however, is knowing when to stop trying to help someone and to start taking care of ourselves”

An Unconditional Truth

“We do not have to love an abusive person in any way. What we can do is to learn to love ourselves unconditionally, and have hope that it will help us to love others in the same way. But again. We do not have to love abusive people in any way, shape, or form. We can certainly wish them well if they decide to get the help they so badly need. But we should never allow someone to affect our self-esteem and self-confidence. It can diminish any self-love we may have. Or it can prevent us from learning to love ourselves unconditionally and being happy with who we are. A love an abusive person never felt. And a happiness they never had.”
