I dont think I overanalyze things. I think I see what is in front of my face and I respond to it.
This happened since I was a kid. I was told by parents and family and teachers that I was some sort of brilliant overthinker for noticing things which I think most other people notice as well.
So why do they tell me I overanalyze? Is it to prevent me from noticing things they don't want me to? I am afraid to add details to any sentence I say, or to notice things, for fear they will interpret it as "overanalyzing". Oh, yeah, and "overanalyzing" is a different thing every time. It is therefore impossible to avoid being accused of doing it by modifying my behavior.
My friend, who contradicts himself all the time, and then denies he did so, changes story details and thinks I dont notice, and then tells me I overanalyze him for asking him why he says and does things, has been vaguely talking about suicide lately.
When I told his family about it, even though there were no actual suicide threats and the talk was vague, he was angry at ME because THEY overreacted to it, saying it almost f*cked him up. I am tired of him blaming me for his and others' behaviour. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it hurts. I don't know if he is aware he does it or not. Mostly it is for his own behavior- like he says something confusing and gets mad at me for saying I don't get it or asking too many questions about it.
I don't effing get it.
