Continuing with the theme of extreme self-consciousness, this is how my mind spent a good chunk of yesterday afternoon:
Oh my gosh I just commented on one of my favorite blogs and they commented back I’m so excited but oh no now my original comment seems kind of stupid and they don’t sound very happy maybe they thought it was rude or too matter-of-fact or just lame ugh why did I say anything maybe I shouldn’t comment any more but no I have to keep commenting so they know I’m not really rude I shouldn’t have included a quote that was dumb and it messed up the formatting I must seem like such a n00b …
… and so on.
Do normal people’s brains work like this? Any suggestions on how to stop completely over-analyzing every little interaction?
