Some solutions for overthinking
Go to the opposite extreme. Focus on the good. What if you're amazing? What if you sweep then off their feet? What if you succeed?
If you can't deal with a reality you created, avoid spending time and energy on it. If you can't touch this worry somehow, it's just an imaginary monster feeding off your thoughts.
Look for the best parts of the situation. You screwed 1 thing, how about the other 10 you did right? Appreciate your accomplishments.
Perspective is everything. Do you think that teacher will remember you dropping a paper in 4 days? Nope. Most people don't even pay attention. The more you focus on a little thing, the bigger it becomes.
Overthinking is a way of running from feelings. Learn to manage your feelings and know that's okay not to know how everything will go like.
Be focused on the positive intentionally!

How to romanticize your person:
Make a "badass" playlist that will make you motivated, now go and achieve your goals
Don't dress for the sake of dressing. Dress so you feel good.
Eating to survive? Nope. Eat so you fuel your body and also enjoy the food. Find balance.
Why bother working on projects? Because they matter to you. Achieve things because those goals set your soul on fire. That's enough.
Do stuff for yourself. There's no need for them to make sense for others. Your joy is top priority.
Invest in yourself first. It's important to share care and love to others but make sure you show yourself the same level of attention first.
There's only 1 opinion that matters the most and that's yours. Don't live in someone else's dream.
Find joy in the activities you do. Cleaning is amazing because you take care of your space and mental health. Eating 5 serves of fruits or veggies is great because it fuels your body and you feel energized. Reading brings knowledge which brings confidence.
Confidence is freedom. Aspire to listen to your heart. Others' words and opinions are leaves in the wind. They'll fly by and you never hear of them again.
You're always with you. Don't let someone who just passes by in your life control it. Also, enjoy your company.
Acknowledge your traits. As uncomfortable it is to learn to have a voice, don't let anyone make you feel invisible. There will always be at least 2 people who see you, you and me because you can always come and chat with me.
Setting boundaries is a form of self-love. Don't let your dreams, feelings or thoughts be stepped upon by others.
