How do you fight with your own thoughts? How do you deal with those tiny words whispering all sort of things?

"You're out of your mind, again" I would tell this to myself over and over. 

How can I win a battle that my own self and my own thought is my enemy. How can I win from that?

A lot of times, I have these thoughts in mind that makes me feel so drained. I feel so exhausted. I feel so over anything else and I realy hate it . Small things can make me so damn crazy over- thinking about it. My mind would makes its own scenarios out of those small things and I'm like hynotized by the imagination created by my own mind. Isn't it crazy? Because if it's not foolishness, I don't know what to label it.

My braincells have this kind of power to work reverse and exaggerate things and even though I am the owner of every nerves and blood working on it, it seemed like they have their own decision and they'll work without my notice. How crazy is that?

Should I call myself crazy then? Am I crazy now? Sometimes, I would diverse my attention to something else to shake my thoughts, but then! they would still  find their own way to make something big deal about it and then I will go crazy over thinking about it again.

Why do I feel like my own thoughts and mind is my biggest enemy. Why does it feel like they are being so traitor anything else in this world. I can't just kill em, right ? Killing them means killing my mentality. But oh wait! mentality? I think they escaped from me alot.

Tell me, how do you battle with your mind?

I understand. In answer to your question, you don't (ideally).

As Alan Watts said,

"Of course, you can’t force your mind to be silent. That will be like trying to smooth ripples in water over the flat iron. Water becomes clear and calm only when left alone."

and

"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float."

Disregarding your disturbing grammar mistakes, I did enjoy that piece of what was mainly just rhetorical questions aimed at the reader.
Personally, I overthink by instinct, I reach conclusions that take others hours to figure out, and I am the first to miss out on common sense as I think that there is no way that something could be so easy.
And after a lot of overthinking, and multiple voices that inhabit my head that are not my own, I have managed to acquire an objective view on everything. Apart from consciousness and the meaning of Life, f*ck figuring that out.
I think that to make this piece more appealing, you could put it in the form of a poem, which would generally get more reads than a script. I would also suggest fixing up the mistakes.
Dm me if you perhaps want help with turning it into a poem, as I would be interested in that.

Hi

I really appreciate that you give time to critique my piece and yes, I'll be more than willing to get help from you to turn this one into a poem.
