    Well, you are not alone. The first row–overthinking and comparing–are probably two of my most soul-sucking habits. I’ve finally gotten to the point where, if I do them and then catch myself, I remind myself that I’m only human.

      Not to be overthinking this, but I think we, single people, get a bad rap for doing these things, when actually everyone does it.
