I Get Lost In My Thoughts Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,452 People

    That is why I can never be out of something to

    write on. Before mobile gadgets became a must-have, I always brought a notebook to jot down my thoughts or a book to distract myself with whenever I find myself having to wait in line. Now, I use my phone and my tablet. I don't stop at just pondering on things anymore...

    I wasn't too worried about

    who I was becoming, I was focused on how I could get gulps of alcohol down my throat.

    I constantly have conversations with myself

    inside my head and find myself slipping away from everything else that's happening around me. I'm also a huge daydreamer, and I can't go for more than half a day without imagining some random scenario in my head that feels a lot better to be in than the real world.

    Sometimes I feel like dying

    because I think it would be better than living.... There are so many people that don't understand how much it hurts to be depressed and know that it's not your fault you are depressed.... It's not a choice....

    I zone out and think,

    everyone/everything gets and I slip away into my daydreams… I can’t help it; I try not to. I think of a person and then I keep thinking what that person would do if I did this, or that to them at that very moment… My palms sweat trying to control myself from actually doing...

    ...thinking about what I could do

    if only life was different. If people were open-minded about more things... if people didn't shun people who weren't cisgender or straight, because they're too ignorant to realize we're just born different. Sometimes I think about what I would do if the closet didn't exist. I'd...

    I've been trapped in the waves of forced change

    so long that I've finally made them my friend. I can't say where they are taking me, but if I just relax and ride them out things are okay. Far better than struggling against them, after all that's proven fruitless long enough for me to all but stop resisting. Now I just ride...

    The past is a strange place to live,

    but your history does colour you. I am mindful of the past since it's energy can be channelled in creative ways. My Muse inspires me using this energy, and I can be determined in how I dedicate myself to a piece of sculpture I'm working on. You should always find a positive...

    So true. Sometimes I will get lost in my

    thoughts and it will feel like I am dwelling on my thoughts for hours but then I 'wake up' and it has only been a few seconds. It's strange but it almost feels like there are multiple life times that I experience.

    I tell myself that I hate most people

    because they're vapid, or boring, or not worth talking to. But honestly, it's very likely that this is a comforting lie I tell myself because I don't want to face the real truth: there are dozens of interesting, kind, beautiful people walking right past me every day, and I will...

    It's not that I can't sleep,

    I don't want to sleep. I want to lay awake and rearrange all of my thoughts. If I could only reach inside my mind and pull them out one by one. Line them up in a neat believable row. Dissect each and every one of them with my tiny fingers. Feel the heat from the fire of desire...

    I'm always thinking. My head is like a nonstop

    Some conversations can take years .

    .. just like games of chess, and some remain unfinished ... and memories of those conversations can hurt even when they are covered with the dust of time, which does fly.

    Sometimes life is very mean: a person can spend

    days, weeks, months and years without feeling new. Then, when a door opens - a positive avalanche pours in. One moment, you have nothing, the next, you have more than you can cope with.

    For when I glanced at you for the first time, I had all the chance to look away. But I chose to look a second longer and there my world has alienated every single concept that I knew about choice

    What if there was a place in the world

    where only the kindhearted people are wealthy, And the ones with ugly personas were the poor. And everyone's looks were based off of their personalities. That would be an interesting place to be, where everyone's true colors are shown for all to see.
