We know that some people have been through a lot of overthinking, but others are doing it constantly instead of just having such periods in their lives. It is part of modern life, we guess, and there is no telling just how many among us overthink just about every moment in their lives. The list below shows that it might actually be a good thing in some situations, as it prepares you for the things others would not expect. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The hand
This person had a fear of losing their dominant hand, but the preparation for this actually did a great job and the person compensated for an injury many years later.

This post shows how some people never prepare but ask for assistance after that. It pays to be an overthinker sometimes, and we know this from experience.

It seems that this person actually suggested something that makes a lot of sense, and this simple tool can be extremely helpful in a number of situations.
