We tend to overthink things when we are presented with a problem.

Whether it's worrying about the future or regretting the past, the common behavior causes so much stress and anxiety in our lives, and yet, most of us continue to be over analytical.

But if we stop and take a breath, we may find that some things in life are a lot simpler than we thought.

Curious to hear some examples, Redditor Worried_pet_Potato asked:
"What seems complicated but is actually dead simple?"

The Power Of A Theorem

"The number of things in physics that are basically The Pythagorean theorem applied is always gratifying."


Authoritative Search Engine

"Using google to answer simple questions."

"For example, I am not an IT professional but I am good at fixing computers because I can 'speak google'. 90% of the time when a friend or family member asks me for tech support, I just google the question."


It's Not Always About Excelling

"When you truly get over the fear of failure of perfectionism, you might be surprised how much you are capable of."


When it comes to basic interactions with people, these Redditors seemed to have hit the nail on the head.

Staying In Your Lane

"Minding your own business."


"Kind of goes hand in hand with shutting the f'k up. Simpler than most people would make it appear."


Not Said Enough

"Telling people you love them when you actually do."


Mature Discussions

"Having a disagreement without getting angry and shouting."


Amateur Chef

"My roommate once said reheating his food in the oven because our microwave was broken took too much work. I wrapped his sh*t in tinfoil and took it out in 10 minutes and the guy thought I was gordon ramsey. Heat plus food equals hot food idiot."


English grammar breaks a lot of rules, but there are some basic rules people should always be cognizant of.

Keep It Simple

"Semicolons. Just have a complete sentence on both sides."


Knowing The Difference

"Their, They're. A, An Your, You're Than, Then."


Common Mistake

"Could have, should have. It drives me insane when I see somebody saying could of or should of."


I don't get people who litter. Is it really that hard to walk your empty water bottle to a recycle bin or toss your candy wrapper in the trash?

Apparently so.

News flash: it's not that difficult to get rid of trash.

Don't overthink it. Just leave your empty soda cans and Starbucks coffee cups off the street, because most of us appreciate cleanliness.

What's impressive to me is how clean the city of Tokyo is in comparison to many metropolitan areas in the U.S.

The baffling part is, there generally are no trash cans in the streets of Tokyo, and yet, the city is in pristine condition because the citizens respect common public areas.

People there carry their trash with them until they find a convenience store with garbage receptacles or get home so they can get rid of trash there.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.

Children Of 'Let Me Talk To The Manager' Parents Share Their Embarrassing Experiences

Parents aren’t doing their job if they’re not embarrassing their kids. However, there are different levels of embarrassment.

It’s bad enough when your parents go around telling humiliating stories about your childhood or insist on hanging out with you and your friends. It’s also pretty bad when your parents are overprotective and either won’t let you do anything fun or force you to keep in constant contact.

However, one of the most embarrassing things your parents can do is ask to talk to a manager when they’re not satisfied with their service.

It’s one thing if the experience is actually a bad one, but when your parents or other relatives make a stink about a simple mistake, you tend to wish the ground would open up and swallow you.

I know I did every time my dad yelled at a manager so scarily that they couldn’t form coherent sentences anymore!

I once worked for a chain restaurant that prided themselves on quality.

Everything was fresh and nothing was microwaved.

You could taste the difference.

Then as the years went by, cut a corner here, microwave a manicotti there.

From what I hear now, the tomato sauce comes pre-packaged when it was made fresh with ripe tomatoes daily.

Everything in service eventually falters at the altar of saving a dollar.

Yet the prices never go down.

Quality degrade, money vanish.
