How do I stop overthinking all the conversations I have? Every time I look back at how I acted and what I said, and how I should've acted and what I should've said. This comes and goes all the time. Please any advice?

I feel like this sometimes - it can take up a lot of my time when I obsess over my words, actions and behaviour in a situation. The best thing to do is to try to move on, let the thought go and preoccupy myself with something else - a new task, a new hobby, doing another activity. I keep in mind that in most cases, the other person I spoke to won't have thought as much as I have about an interaction and I most likely didn't do the wrong thing.

I try to do that, and that's something that annoys me. Here I am making it deep meanwhile the other person probably doesn't even care.

For me, I think that I shouldn't be using my time to overthink a situation when I could be do something more useful with my time or using my time more positively. I don't think I will ever rid myself of the way I dwell on what I do, but I hope to be able to cope better. It's not as bad as it used to be, but still happens.
