OVERTHINKING KILLS YOUR CREATIVITY II
WRITTEN BY ALLI ADAMS
I hope you read about the extent of my OVERTHINKING yesterday.
During that time, depression was my one day on and off visitor.
Nothing around me worth appreciating, even those that are blessing by nature.
I remembered I wanted to change my name from Adam to something else as Yoruba translation of Adamu is closely related to suffering “maybe this is why I have not been lucky” why do they even named me after this name self? I asked myself.
All these were running through my mind and things began to worsen every day by day.
One day when I sat in the room beside the window and heard the sound of Two cocks fighting, I needed to pause my thinking to concentrate on these two chickens’ wrestling.
One small cock and another big one but the smaller was so confident that it refused to surrender, at last, it overpowered the bigger one and the bigger one ran away.
Suddenly I began to think as usual that this could be me ooo.
It seems I have some of the power to overpower my challenges.
When I thought about this, I began to think again until I finally reach the conclusion that I was the one who manifested most of the failure for myself because I overthink which doesn’t allow me to see the possibilities.
Then I started thinking positively, some things started happening for my goods, In that same year, I became the first position in my class (primary 5) and I was offered a double promotion to the secondary school.
So, I had caged myself with OVERTHINKING and self-doubt.
Ever since I knew this I have always learn to love myself, my people and everything about me..
But wait, does this still stop my entire over-thinking habits?
Anticipate till I write to you again.
Your Push King.
