Why Do People Overthink?

Overanalyzing the same thought repeatedly to the point that it interferes with daily life is referred to as overthinking.  

A person who is experiencing an overthinking episode could find it challenging to act, make choices, or get rid of a specific notion.

1. Mind-reading Have you ever been in a circumstance where you felt certain that everyone had a negative opinion of you as a result of something you did or said that they perceived as being silly?

2. Rumination Rumination is a form of circular thinking in which we repeatedly dwell back on the past or fret about the tasks we must complete in the future.

3. Catastrophizing Catastrophizing entails concentrating on a situation's worst-case scenario and all the negatives that could occur in your life.
