choose your values over your reactions

Yesterday, I saw a woman wearing a t-shirt that said, “Stop! Let me Overthink This for Awhile!” 

I almost laughed out loud because I am an overthinker from wayyyyy back. I spent most of my childhood overthinking everything. You give me a half finished sentence or maybe someone gave me a look I didn’t understand, and that was all I needed to think about it for weeks. 

It is almost a subconscious reaction but it speaks volumes about the longevity of your relationship

It isn’t cheating. Or drinking. Or lying. Or personality type. 

I mean, cheating & lying should be HUGE predictor of relationship failure.
