    I think constantly, especially

    when I go to bed. I think of hours and each thought leads to another. I over think way too much but I'm not really sure how to stop.

    I want to message someone I care deeply for,

    but they told me that they couldn't message me anymore. I don't feel like that's good enough, maybe my emotions are getting in the way, but I care for this person, and I don't leave people. I don't give up on people, especially those I care deeply for. Would messaging said...

    In my opinion some people need religion

    because they are not mentally strong enough to come to a conclusion that we are a result of evolution and the Big Bang theory these explanations aren't enough because some people need closure like they will go to heaven when they die. Yes religion can be a good thing but when...

    This may get rather lengthy,

    so unless you uphold some kind of humanitarian beliefs, then I can save the time of reading this and ask that you read no further. That being said, here we go. I am, by no means, a mystical person. I try to look at everything with logic and tangibility, instead of some sort of...

    And this is what I think.

    .. People chose to follow religion in ignorance instead of love. What I mean by this is religion is supposed to be about faith and love for not only god(s) but those who worship around us as well. Yet, many people spend more time pointing out those who are "sinners" and "bad...

    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...

    The realisation that at some point you will be

    completely forgotten in time. That is one of my dark fears. Everything I've been through will be forgotten, the people I managed to trust, the dreams that I may in future achieve, all gone. It makes me think everything is pointless for we will all be lost in history.

    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.
