I Am a Deep Thinker

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,204 People

    I was going to say "high thinker"

    because that is what it feels like, but that sounds like I do drugs or something... no, I just like to shed light on everything and use my mind for good or great things. Sure, that's a subjective assessment, and I often find myself not thinking, but with practice, I think more...

    Deep thinking doesn't necessarily have to be

    intellectual. Sometimes it's just taking the time to reflect on what is happening around you.

    I've learned that people will forget what you

    said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.

    I think far too much,

    I over think most things, but, it also prepares me for life's crap! If it happens then no doubt I've already thought about it and know how to deal with it! I clearly have too much time on my hands and sometimes wish my brain would shut up :)

    Words are meaningless

    unless you give them the meaning to be understood by others.

    I despise small talk.

    words that don't mean anything just filling the void. I don't ask questions I don't want the answer to.

    I enjoy psychology and philosophy.

    I like studying peoples' motives. I absolutely adore moral dilemmas. I look at things in a utilitarian perspective but I enjoy digesting other ways of thinking. I love asking people what their motto is. What their philosophy is for life. I also like to space off when I'm suppose...

    In the deepI've asked myself a lot of questions

    about life, people and other more since elementary but I realized that as I grow, I end up seeking more answers to questions that can reach to thousands. Many times I've said to myself that I wish that I was like any normal girl my age that will just go with the flow, think...

    Where is home? I thought I was there

    yet now I have nowhere to go. Was it an illusion? Was it a mistake? Was I treading the path I must take? Is it a trial? Is it a punishment? Am I even destined to be here? I know there is a purpose. Someday I'll know. Someday I'll be strong. And I'll find my way home.

    Does anybody have moments were they sit there

    and think about the meaning of life? Like I will literally sit for hours thinking about what is life. What will i do when I get older? Am I gonna just lead a typical boring life or will I leave a mark on the world? I can't be the only one thinking these things right? Right?

    Difference between a Guru

    I turned 18 last week

    If you take a step back from the bounds of

    religion and listen like they are any other story, all religions say the same exact thing. Like down to the facts.. All the Messiahs were born in December (usually the 25), 3 wise men always bring gifts, a star in the east always leads them there. The Messiah always has 12...

    If you lived in the Dark Ages

    and you were a catapult operator, I bet the most common question people would ask is, "Can't you make it shoot farther?" "No, I'm sorry. That's as far as it shoots."

    I never realized I would go down fighting to the infinite end - until this very moment.. The climatic dreams spoke of this but I paid no mind.. It's a surreal feeling really, a timely conversation.

    I'm a risk taker. Although I'm old enough to

    not be stupid. Everything in my profile is true about me but it says nothing about me as it's about 1% of you I am. It's just 1 aspect of my personality.

    I once read this article about singularities

    and the evolution of the human race. Basically the point was that once we get going (and we have) there is no stopping us, and eventually we will become omnipotent... unless we destroy ourselves, which does not seem super likely anymore to me at this point in time. Omnipotent...

    Christians in miserable marriages

    I made up this quote just now: Give yourself

    credit for the hard long-term decisions we made when we became adults. We were young, and made the best choice we thought was possible on a whim. So if you made any mistakes, forgive yourself. Learn what not to do for next time. Life goes on, and there is plenty of time to...

    Some people think of deep thinkers

    as stoners and I don't even smoke lol. You don't have to do drugs to be a deep thinker. That just shows how simple-minded some people are to think that.

    Is it impossible for a being in a simulation to

    I can turn one word into a thousand in a split

    second. My mind eats away at it, transforming it into something beautiful or quite insidious. I dwell on my own thoughts and spend a majority of my time in my head thinking about anything and everything.
