O for Overthinking #AtoZChallenge

The cursor blinked in the empty spreadsheet before me. I typed down the heading and watched it blink some more. I had a half-mind about writing it down. It seemed like a great idea thirty seconds ago. But now the dubiousness crawled in. My fingers hung on top of the keyboard, waiting for the brain to give the green signal. But the brain was busy processing the gazillion thoughts that'd poured in all of a sudden. 

Is it really a good idea to write about this? I think it'll come out as too self-centred. I'm not even sure if I want people to read it. Why would anyone read about my faults? But I want to write it, that's for sure. I want to heal myself. But what if I'm just going to end up embarrassing myself? Am I being a little too negative? I don't know why I'm doing this. But I also think I should, you know?
