    Re: think yourself into trouble

    That you are in trouble is just an illusion.

    Re: think yourself into trouble

    I think it means that if you think about a thing too much (instead of acting on intuition) you may arrive at a bad outcome.

    An example would be if a person's first impulse is to lie to keep himself out of trouble, then he thinks it through thoroughly, tells the truth and winds up divorced or in jail.
