Are you feeling overwhelmed by obsessive thoughts? Do you find yourself ruminating on the same topics over and over again? If so, you may be experiencing the signs of obsessive thinking.
Obsessive thinking is a type of mental health disorder that can cause a person to become fixated on certain thoughts or ideas. It can be a symptom of anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues. People who suffer from obsessive thinking often have difficulty controlling their thoughts and can become preoccupied with certain topics or ideas.
The signs of obsessive thinking can vary from person to person, but some common signs
• Difficulty concentrating on other tasks

• Excessive worrying about the same topics
