You’re overthinking this

I recoil from the judgement, “You’re overthinking this.” I get it a lot and it’s not always uncalled for. I understand there is such a thing as overthinking things, and it’s an occupational and personality hazard for me. But thinking hard is what I bloody do. I think for a living. Sure, maybe I could reel it in here and there, but I promise you I will not get to the end of my days and think, “If only I hadn’t thought so much!”
