I know that I overthink when I am alone, or I have no work. I like to keep myself busy, usually with something productive. But that is not possible all the time. I am a designer by profession. And I love design. So I like my profession. I passed out of college last year. The goal of my life right now is becoming a successful entrepreneur. So I usually keep thinking of ideas and new ways to generate money for myself. I do freelancing sometimes too. On weekdays I work at the office and usually I work even when I get back home. And I feel fine. I am not a party person. Don't enjoy pubs. So on the weekends, when I have no work it gets really frustrating. I start examining my life, judging things on the basis of target vs achieved. Whether I am on the right path or not. Am I creative enough or not. Will I ever be successful in my profession or not. I know everything takes time and dedication, and things will come. But that does not stop the frustration. And I can't stop thinking.

Hello there...., just relax.. Take steps to control stress, to increase your resilience and boost your self-esteem.... Reach out to family and friends, especially in times of crisis, to help you weather rough spells..... Make time to get enough rest to physically promote improvement in your mood...Express your feelings, either to friends, ... Do not expect too much from yourself too soon as this will only increase feelings of failure....Try to be with other people, which is usually better than being alone.....
