I just always overthink things. My mind starts racing and even if the other person hasn't said anything offending, or nothing at all, my mind still keeps finding issues in that. How the person or even only a thing could hate me, and how and why they want to punish and hurt me as much as they can.
I can't control this, and sometimes i cry for hours, just because someone just said "Hi" to me, as i start to analyze everything over and over again. How they moved, how they looked at me etc.
And the worst thing is, that i dont really know how express my sadness and anger right, as i get seemingly punished for everything i try.

It isnt easy when it feels like you are being punished by everyone and everything. I've had that feeling from time to time like the universe itself hates me. But as I continued through it all good or bad I realized it doesnt matter if the world or all of the worlds are out to ri g you down because all I could do was press forward and find whatever good things are possible to find. It isnt easy and I still want to give up sometimes but I think its natural and we all do sometimes.
Not sure if this helps but do try to hang in there.

Hi there,

I definitely know what you mean in regards to overthinking. I've spent a large majority of my time over-analysing every little thing and honestly all it does is drain me. This feeling I find is often worsened by alcohol, so I've been avoiding drinking a lot. Have you ever spoken to a counsellor or your GP about these feelings? It could potentially be the first step towards recovery. Just know that we on the forum are more than happy to chat with you and offer our advice :)
