Over-Thinking should be over forever!

Throw a glance at fig. A.  Oops!  In this total mess, are you able to find where these arrows are heading towards?

Ok, if this graphic was to represent some aspect of our personality, what would that be… with so many arrows emerging and going haywire? Any guesses? You must have guessed it right. These arrows are representative of our thoughts, which continuously emanate from our mind.  And, what if these arrows are further increased in the figure? Oh! Surely, it would result in a catastrophic situation! Isn't it?

It's the over-thinking mind that makes simple situations complex.  And so, it's the over thinking mind that must be better controlled in order to stop worrying and start living…

During their conversation, she was shocked to know about the real situation. The reality was that the husband was very caring and was hiding his wife's illness from her. Actually, that lady was a doctor…

Most of the time, it's your mind that projects huge mountains of problems, which otherwise have no basis at all! It's just due to the tendency of the mind to over think, and that too negatively, that situations turn from bad to worse...
