Overplanning = Anxiety

A thought. Sometimes when you are told things, they are just thoughts that you put into your back pocket till you realize that you are now at the point of your live where you can apply it where it makes sense.

My assertive over planning is my Anxiety acting up. I been doing this since I was young, when people told me that planning is ok and normal, it was normalized to me exp now I realize mine is acessive compared to what a health “normalized” planning is.

Overplanning can be a side effect of an anxiety disorder that developed in early life. This need for control is often a survival mechanism for those who had unstable childhoods. Although this behavior may have served its purpose in the past, overplanning can be detrimental in adulthood.
