My brain hurts

I psych myself out a lot. I over think and over analyze everything. I also have a problem with doubting my knowledge and "smarts." I feel like I can never know anything for sure because there is so much to know. For example, I am supposed to be writing a research paper about the causes of the India- Pakistan war of 1947. There are so many! And each of those causes has another smaller cause. Oh, and I also have a problem with procrastinating. This paper is due on Friday and I am just now getting to it. On Sunday. Now some may say 5 days is plenty of time to write a paper. Not for me! I am so overwhelmed with the amount of information I have to take into account. Not to mention the self doubting and the over analyzing. I feel like this is so huge and there is no way I can condense it down to 12-15 pages without blowing off a lot of information. Not to mention my lack of "smarts."

I loathe writing research papers.

Just stop for a second, and breathe. Figure out the more important, bigger causes. Don't mention the smaller causes of causes if they don't fit into it.
Once you get into it, it'll be a lot easier. Getting started is always the hardest part.
Good luck :)
