I make all of these mistakes. Those are the games that I usually lose pretty quickly.

Nine times out of ten a big bet means the other guy has a great hand, and he's NOT "bluffing". "Pot committed" just means the other guy has you beat and you're tired of playing so you just throw the rest of your stack in the middle. "I can't fold here" - sure you can if you want to stay in long enough to make the final table.

Winning poker players become winners because we do things to gain edges over our competition. So, what happens when overthinking sometimes gets us into trouble?

Ashley Adams identifies five stack-crippling thoughts that can sabotage our play - Know them, identify them, and avoid them.

Self-Sabotage: 5 Destructive, Stack-Crippling Thoughts and How to Avoid Them

Good list; luckily, I'm not typically guilty of any of these, but only because I'm aware of them BEFORE it happens :)
