I play a Stratocaster, and i've been using Ultra Light strings. But today, I got some new strings, which were Light. And I'm kinda paranoid that 10's may be too thick for my strat. Or is this all okay?

Your guitar will fold itself into a circle shortly...

No, you'll be fine.

ultra lights that ive seen = 8 gauge, and going up 2 gauges may cause a tension shift, just check your action by holding down the E string at the 1st fret and the end of the fretboard, the biggest difference in string to fretboard ratio is around the 6th fret

Thanks guys, I'm just kinda paranoid because the new strings feel HUGE. Like I'm putting bass strings on or something.

I've had the tiny ones in my mouth and accidentally swallowed a bit of the liquid, you should be all right.
