Paralysis of analysis

My anxiety is high this morning. Today is a day I have to make decisions about closing my businesss. My over thinking mind has flip flopped over and over about how to approach this. The child inside of me is insecure , afraid , and avoiding adult decisions. I am aware of this yet the emotional mind gets its way. Itelectually I know that I am going to be fine and ready for retirement. Work has been a hiding place and provides structure. I just have ANTS in my head. Automatic negative thoughts. Expressing this publicly is helping me come down from the panic and heal. Thanks for being here. This is a good outlet. Have a positive day ✌️

Thank you for sharing. My daughter just got diagnosed with depression and I'm trying to understand it so hearing others talk about their experience really helps me to understand and help her.
