As a naturally anxious and neurotic person, I can't help but overthink stuff. I use organising and planning as a tool to calm myself down and remain in control. What are anxious people good at doing? Expecting things to go wrong. Alas, if only we could be more like our fellow animals who only have … Continue reading Nothing’s ever as bad as you expect
