I Am a Deep Thinker

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,784 People

    I tend to think about life a lot,

    or basically how it could end. I find myself thinking about outer space and the universe. For example, the sun could implode and burn the whole solar system to a crisp. Or, a supermassive black hole could suck the whole world into it. I could have a heart attack at any time. A...

    Why is God in all the religions I can think of,

    always referred to as "the father"?? Even Allah has male connotations, but what if he was a she?? What if religious people are actually worshipping the heavenly mother and not father??

    It is sad to think this

    but - yet I am surrounded with people I call friends but no feeling runs so deep. I am here to stand strong for myself and for others that say they hold me dear but run at the sight of my struggle. am I the one in hast to feel? to learn? to experience? when, in all my life these...

    Interesting how when a white,

    Each beat of the drum is the rhythm of life,

    it's not dictated by the people that dance to it, it's dictated by the artist. We all march to the beat of our own drum, life is a song that is yet to be finished. It will have crescendos and climaxes and it will have reappearing parts, but what we must remember is that every...

    Well, I had a deep thought once.

    People told me to not go there. They said too much deep thought might lead to... Well, they didn't say. Just something about how great the status quo is. And you ask why I smoke?

    To see what I see, to know what I know,

    would mean you are me. You can't be me, just as I can't be you. We may go through the same trials, we may even believe the same things, but you will never be me and I will never be you. No matter how much money you have, no matter how much influence, no matter how much power you...

    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?

    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.

    I am a deep thinker because I over analyze

    too fast. Way before my time. Matured before my time. So they define it.. That constant reminder "oh you're mature for your age". It Can no longer be heard as a compliment but rather a reminder, a reminder of the intrinsic cry that I fear I will soon be feeling. Feeling Senile...

    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 :)

    and think "****, I'll be that old one day" and then you convince yourself you've got ages before then, but end up realising how quickly your life has been so far??

    I constantly think about the universe,

    It's become a ritual of mine.

    I like to lay out in a small field near my area. Just sit back at night and look up at the stars and moon. I feel so at peace and relaxed out there by myself. Just gives me a break from all the craziness of the world and allows me to think about things. Clear my mind and think...

    Deep thinking doesn't necessarily have to be

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

    When bad things happen,

    people always want someone to blame. Some group or individual that can be the sole cause of what happened. They feel angry, and want a target for their anger. It's like when school shootings happen, and people blame some music artist or genre for being a bad influence on kids...

    Appreciation. Who really knows what it means to
