I often wonder if I’m overthinking and causing myself pain in multiple areas of my life. Sometimes I think I should just let things go and not constantly analyze and do thought work and models etc. on them. It’s like I’m using this work against myself somehow.

My partner had pointed this out multiple times, asking why I can’t just be happy and enjoy our life instead of picking everything apart. Part of the answer to that question is that I guess I’m still constantly looking for the negative and not letting myself enjoy the positive. I feel sort of helpless, like I go around and around and don’t get very far in my coaching. Any insight?
