I Am a Deep Thinker

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,307 People

    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...

    What gives someone the right to make someone

    else feel less about themselves or making someone feel like they can't be themselves without fear of being judged or criticised. I refuse to let anyone make me feel like I don't have a voice especially over social media. So you can be negative or say negative horrible stuff...

    Time, I find the perception of time to be very

    interesting. If you stop and think about it time does not exist. All that is, is the current moment. You see time is the past and the future existing at the same exact moment. Example time passes every "second" so literally as you read this post you are simultaneously...

    Sometimes I feel like a plastic bag drifting in

    the wind. Just being a free spirit in the wind. Unchained from gravity's grip with my plastic limbs. With my trademark image in the middle of my bag of a chest.

    Every detail of memory is slipping through the

    cracks of ones bare hands. It's only the beginning stages of watching them disperse from his own eyes. "I'm not happy with you" is poison seeping through his skin as a chemical reaction of losing her herself. It's drastic change shows lack of character but being blindside...

    Words are meaningless

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

    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 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 :)

    I turned 18 last week

    I think about how bad my life is,

    how no one understands me. Then I think it's not that bad and there are others out there and I end up having arguments in my head. Then I think about how my brain can have conflicting thoughts, like why does part of it say yes and another no? Thinking about thinking about these...

    That feeling when you really think about how

    much time you spend with yourself compared to everybody else. You are the only person that knows you this well and you will never know anybody else as well as they know themselves. It makes sense to make peace with one's self. To be forgiving and find ways to enjoy yourself. It...

    The brain: our fears,

    dreams, likes, dislikes, smell, vision, touch, hearing, all just signals passing through it. Our brain controls our actions and thoughts, what few instincts we still have are stored there. But do we control it, or is it the illusion of control? What is the true organism we call...

    I think way too much

    for my own well-being. I think about my past and what I could've done differently, the present and how much it sucks, and the uncertainty regarding the future. I feel half of the reason is due to anxiety, and the other half is because I have too much time on my hands. I'm lonely...

    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 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 constantly think about life

    and how there'd no reason for anythinf to exist. In the end nothing really matters. I think about how big the universe and how it's ever expanding. I think about death, how far technology is going, and how some kids today are exposed to too much.
