It seems I want to start so many posts with "One of the biggest challenges with giftedness is…".  Even though giftedness has its highlights, there are also many not-so-easy things that show up as well.

So my "biggest challenges" post today is about the emotional roller coaster we spend so much…

I'm glad to know I'm not going crazy analysing every single little thing I think about, but this hasn't been happening always. I've been told I was gifted 4 years ago, but this has only started happening now… Why?

Marfusha, welcome!

As you grow and change throughout your life you'll find that different parts of your giftedness appear stronger at different times. Just as you are likely not exactly the same person you were 4 years ago, your thinking isn't the same either. And you may have just developed a greater awareness of it more recently.

If you wouldn't mind sharing, when you start analysing everything you think about, what kinds of words are running through your mind at that time?

It's when something seemingly insignificant happens: Someone gives me an odd look or tells me something, if I read a piece of info, or if I just happen to think about or notice something…
Then my brain starts its crazy frenzy for information on it, and if it can't get to it, I think about it all the time, I explore all the different scenarios, I think of all the possible combinations, I try to find the hidden meaning, then I use logic to try to figure it out…
And it refuses to leave my mind until I find an answer that satisfies me.
Often I get skeptical when I first find a possible answer to it.

Thank you for answering.
That kept me up too.

You are definitely in search of answers, and wanting a sense of closure or satisfaction with what you find out. This can refer to something as simple as a gifted person's continual quest for knowledge, or it can be as complicated as your search for the ultimate answers in life.

Two questions come to mind as I'm reading your comment:
1. Have you ever tried journaling, just to be able to empty the thoughts from your mind so they don't have to run around in there? I find that if I have a lot on my mind, if I write everything down I'm subconsciously telling myself that it's OK to take the ideas from my current thoughts because they're already recorded somewhere.
2. Have you seen the post called ** You don't have permission to see this link. **? This is actually something that tends to be extremely underused in gifted people because it's one of those things that we quickly learn to turn off. Since it defies logic the rest of the world can't understand it and we can't explain it. But it definitely makes a difference. It'll help you get more of a sense about whether or not an answer that you find is the right one or not.
