You lament over small mistakes
None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes within the relationships that we share with the people we care about. Admitting that we messed up, can feel embarrassing and uncomfortable at times but for overthinkers, these moments can be especially devastating. They stress over the tiniest of mistakes, oftentimes, out of fear that their missteps will dramatically alter their partner’s perception of them and/or result in the end of the relationship.
