    What's the point of going to school

    and uni etc just to grow up and work for the rest of your life? It's so stressful for me now. Why do I have to live like this? All I here from adults is that life just gets harder when you get a job and I'm already struggling with stress. I have such high expectations due to my...

    Isn't it strange how the government knows

    I think atheist are funny.

    I think people are really confused about what religion is, and what God is. They try so hard to convince others their beliefs is false, on notions of heaven, hell. The real question is. Why does it matter to them so much. For example. I say i love jesus, which i don't. Every...

    Fear and ego... I found wisdom in me.

    I love it sometimes and sometimes let it get to my head. I develop an ego. That I know something not many do. That I can access it at will. I guess the struggle to get here causes the pride. I think its a subconscious reaction to others...like daring them to try touch me now...

    Real listening and understanding is a fine art.

    All verbal and written language is inherently limiting. The words that we choose are only a representation of our actual thoughts. In fact, unspoken languages, like face and body language, can tell us more about a person's true thoughts in a single gesture than a full page of...

    To say you are done with the world.

    ..is practically going over to the side of the ones you are giving up on, that you are joining the side of selfishness. I know for a fact that humans aren't selfish creatures. Otherwise, we would have wiped each other out a long time ago.

    I think too much, I think.

    Not sure. I have to think about it some more. Because I am a thinker. So many things to think about. Stupid things, I think. Thinking wastes time. Precious time. I think about the time passing. The time being wasted. Wasting more time, I think.

    the confidence of a man who believes he can learn to swim and the man who has swam in the oceans. There is a subtle difference between the two. Yet, i feel the former is more important.

    What you think is what materializes in life.

    It is a fact. If you are thinking how untrue this is... You will want to shout it down or disprove it...but therein you think you cannot believe and then you set to working in strengthening your unbelief straightaway.

    I'm always thinking, mostly about my life.

    Where I will end up, if I will be happy with my life. If I've made the wrong/right choices, how they will impact me. It's never ending, my mind just keeps going. I prefer it this way. Although it keeps me up at night lol.

    A weird thought crossed my mind.

    .. The majority of us have never seen a 360 degree view of somewhere without buildings blocking your view or man made things etc. they are difficult to find now! This is the reason I don't want to live on this planet because we are corrupt and have damaged it too much.
