We spend too many hours waiting for calls that never come, postcards that never arrive, and dinner dates that never happen. We spend countless minutes thinking and analyzing and later overanalyzing everything.  Is he into me, is he not? What does this mean? blah, blah and more blah. Whether they held your hand or kissed the top of your head or texted a smiley face without prompting or whether you had to force them to do it. It is so easy to be caught up in over-analyzing and over-thinking what they did or what they are about to do.  Often times we end up messing things even before they get started.

Why?

Simple. We are constantly thinking too much. We over-think love and we don’t act on impulse. We are scared. We are terrified. We want to be loved but don’t have enough guts to let love in.

Here is a challenge – Stop overanalyzing. Stop expecting. Let people show you their intentions before jumping into conclusions. Allow people to make mistakes.
