I find my best solution is to isolate myself. Which I know sounds depressing but it's not, I just am better alone beacause I stress too much about things haha.Yes very much so. Seing patterns can be quite annoying especially if you're into music, films and the arts in general as it loses some of its "magic".
As being stated the biggest problem is digging too deep and end up loosing track of all the practical details. I've tried to be more pragmatic, and I think it helps a lot. If I can't change it, it's better just to accept it or leave it alone.
