    Coping with overthinking and insecurities

    Hi Sophiy, thanks, I have been recommended his latest book on several occasions, I'm still getting to reading it. Right now I'm reading 12 rules for life by my personal hero Jordan Peterson.

    Coping with overthinking and insecurities

    Hi Oscar, thanks for taking your time to reply. I was wondering if you know any specific ways to actually turn my back on deep dark dangerous cave. Cos I know there's a way out, I'm just trying to change the way I think, so I can address this matter more constructively. Anything from excersizes to do or articles to read? Thanks in advance!

    My mom makes me hate myself

    Sounds like she's taking her own frustrations and/or insecurities out on you. Maybe she pushed you so she would feel successful at at least something. Don't take it as a personal attack.
  5. Hi all, I wanted to ask your advice on my situation. I'm 28 years old, and I have been struggling with depression on and off since my early teens. I have a very analytical mind which makes me overthink everything and I catch myself daydreaming more often than not. When I have a depressive episode, these daydreams turn into destructive nightmarish thoughts. Do you know any ways, psychotherapeutical or anecdotal, in which I can address this? Another question is what's the best way of addressing insecurities. I'm generally quite insecure about my own value, even though I have a STEM masters degree, have average people skills, get out of the house regularly, work out, etc. I feel like all I've done in life is trying to prove my insecurities wrong, but they're really destroying me and talking me down on every turn. I can't land a job, can't commit to a relationship, keep pushing away friends. My thoughs have sabotaged most of my life, and in the past 3 months I have lost almost everything and ended up almost completely alone. I feel this has driven me to the brink of insanity and I really need some advice. I hope you can help me address these issues. Cheers!
