Why does my mind keep thinking negatively?
Why is my mind always looking for problems and threats?
Why is my mind always warning me when I’m trying to step out of comfort zones, and making me worry a lot?
Why is my brain always predicting the worst?
Why am I always thinking about the painful memories?
Why am I so scared of rejection and not fitting in?
Why is my mind always comparing myself to others?
Why do I never feel enough or contented with what I already have, and wanting more more more?
