Okay, I know I said I was giving up on self-help books. Really, I am trying. Some are still on my bookshelf, but that’s mostly because the used bookstore doesn’t want them either. And I can’t just throw them away! That’s wrong! Of course, I didn’t need to get another one out of the library, but I did…
Yesterday I started reading Women Who Think Too Much: How to Break Free of Overthinking and Reclaim Your Life by Susan Nolen-Hoeksema. (Which, incidently, would still probably be a good read for men who think too much.) If I have ever read a book that seemed directed completely towards me and my problems, this book is it. The things the author describes come directly out of my brain. Once something bothers me I just can’t let it go. Thoughts run around in my little head for ages, get worse and worse. You might have noticed that reading my blog. 🙂
I’m just about to start reading the section that gives exercises and suggestions to help stop overthinking from happen. I desperately hope that they will help. I don’t want to dwell on things like I do. It takes so much energy and time, which I would really rather spend doing something else. Quieting my mind would be so wonderful.
On a different note, Final Fantasy X-2 comes out today. I am a huge Final Fantasy fan, and I am so excited about this game. But, because quanta isn’t working right now I know I shouldn’t buy it. Lay-offs suck. 😛 I guess I’ll just wait for a while to buy it. The price will drop eventually too.
