Over Thinking

18 Jan

Something I do quite often is over think. Whether it’s a math problem, social problem, computer hardware problem, or code, I tend to over think it. Make it more complicated than it needs to be. Why? I’m not fully sure. Sometimes, complex seems better, and other times, I think ‘it can’t be that simple’. And I do it a lot.

The thing is though, I’m not the only person out there who over thinks things. Sure, the same topics I over think on, others don’t, but that doesn’t mean it never happens. How often do we ask ourselves, ‘it can’t be that simple’? A lot of the time, it really is that simple, but not in the way one may initially think of.

For example, a complex math problem. It may not have a “simple” or “easy” way to solve it, but instead of getting frustrated and angry over it, take the simple approach, and ask for help. It’s the same for everything. Whether it’s a homework problem, social problem, or personal problem, the simple, and less complex solution is to ask for help. You may need to swallow your pride in order to do so, but it makes life easier.
