The triangle for overthinkers

“Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
- Confucius

Every minute we are spending in silence, awake or alone- we are spending thinking. Commonly about things that are being overthought. 

Times, dates, appointments, emotions, actions- everything that we think about- we analyse, dissect and review subconsciously. 
We don't necessarily know when it happens, how it is triggered or when it stops, but at some point within our lives- we have all done it.

Waves of anxiety, stress and tension leave us feeling overwhelmed about the things that are happening in our lives.

Money, love and work being the pinnacle subjects that are most commonly overthought.I give you: the triangle for over thinkers. 

The three main things that over thinkers drown in.


When we hand over $20 for lunch, and then $5 for the bus and another $50 for our phone bill, we mentally start calculating how everything is adding up. 

We won't do it everyday, but come pay time, it becomes critical

We look at that small little box down the bottom that shows us what we have earned annually and see the large sum of what we are meant to have and then compare it to what we currently have. 

It's devastating, when you realise that you've just spent nearly $11,000 in 7 months on things like food, drinks and leisure activities. Did you want some ice with that burn?


The constant struggle of weighing money over love.Passion over security, finance over life- work is the only thing that keeps people alive, although it is the main killer of happiness.No one enjoys their job- thats why they pay you to do it.

Some people could argue that statement, saying that they run their own business or that they get enough benefits that they are happy to go to work or that they love what they do sooooo much that it doesn't seem like work.

In that case- congratulations. You are one of the lucky ones. 

However, many people struggle for many years trying to earn enough just to breathe, to feed their family- or even just trying to keep themselves surviving.

Working surely isn't a luxury, in fact, many of us would rather not. But unfortunately, it's just not how things go around here. If you want the best in life- you have to earn it.
And by earning it, I'm talking about physically and mentally exercising every aspect of your being.

It's up to you to decide how much is too much, how much is not enough and how far will you go to reach what you consider 'happiness' with your career and within your workplace.


What would we do, imagine the power in the world, if one knew how to find love, and how to keep love.

Love is the most tenacious, infrequent and confusing emotion in life. Its underestimated for its power of destruction and resolution. 

Love is the main reason behind war, behind success, and therefore is the significant key to both happiness and sadness. It can destroy people or bring people together.

So, with its undeniable affect and power- it also becomes (probably the highest) overthought subject of all time.

Love links to work and to money- because with love, one either needs or doesn't need money. With love, one discovers a passion which they then pursue for in a career. Love doesn't necessarily have to be based within two people, but can be found in work, activities and objects.

When we analyse things in our lives and overthink ideas, situations and issues, it is all subliminally related to love.

Are we happy? Do i love my job? Do i love my partner? Do i enjoy where I am at in my life? Am i happy with where I am living? Can i do better? Is this it?

All the above questions link back to love- a great interest and pleasure in something, with a strong feeling of affection.

Feelings outweigh physical things inevitably and therefore, love will always override every other thing you overthink.
If you want to solve overthinking, or become peaceful and free from your mind...find love within yourself, in your life and in those around you. 

By doing this- you will be able to solve all other things you currently overthink- you may even find there aren't many things to be overthought once this is done.
