O is for Overthinkers — a resignation letter

Notice to all members

I wish to give advance notice that after what seems like a lifetime in the role, I intend to stand down from my position as President of the Universal Society of Overthinkers (USO). 

Please don't imagine that I no longer care about you all or that I've lost faith in the organisation. And I wouldn't want to give anyone the idea that I'm a quitter, or that I'm just shitty because she-who-I will-not-name keeps badmouthing me to anyone who'll listen. And while it's true that I did crack a bit of a sad because I spent hours organising that last event and then hardly anyone came, I'd hate any of you to think I'm not thankful for the support of those who did come along. Nor would I want to give the impression that I'm not grateful for all the opportunities this role has afforded me over the years. Plus it would break my heart if anyone took this as a slur on the other committee members, because I really am indebted to them for all they've done...

You know what? Forget what I said. 
See you at the AGM.
Your President.

Song of the Day:  Don't Think Twice It's All Right, classic 1962 Bob Dylan.

Question of the Day:  Are you a paid-up member of the Universal Society of Overthinkers? A committee member? President? Or do you belong to some other society?



  1. I am a paid up member and president of anxiety anonymous. I visit it almost daily, but also spend time before I sleep worrying about the next meeting. I have also been involved with the 'Overthinkers society' on occasion.

  2. I too am a member of anxiety anonymous. I think my husband might be the 2nd chair of the Society of Overthinkers, though. What a pair!
    Love the song choice today.

  3. Great choice of song today! Anxiety is one of my most reliable companions. Never too far away.

  4. I would like to table an agenda item for the next meeting. One for discussion, contemplation and inevitable throwing out because everything is impossible. The item is that we consider meeting in daylight hours rather than 3am. The light of know... xS

  5. I have been quite busy with the Western Branch of USO. So hard to organise a meeting time that suits all of the nay-sayers in my head.

  6. :D That had me laughing so hard. I had no idea you had taken over as the Prez of the USO. I used to be "it" years ago before I realized I was better off as the Prez of the Underthinkers ;-)

    Hehehe. Oh gosh. I have to read all your posts now.

    Crazy. Too many blogs

  7. This was such fun to read :) I think I should at least be an honorary member of the USO :D
