I Get Lost In My Thoughts Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,342 People

    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.

    ...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 get lost in my thoughts quite often

    even when I'm with people, talking on the phone, or skyping I tend to start daydreaming and zone the hell out especially when I have a lot on my mind

    What I've Learnt

    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...

    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.

    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.

    I daydream a lot. Whether it's thinking of

    telling off my boss, or getting a new job, to just wanting to be home watching TV instead of working, daydreaming to me is a survival instinct. Without it, I think I would go crazy. Maybe someday, my daydreams will come true.

    I have strange thoughts

    that scare myself. Like what if gravity stopped? What if I die in my sleep? What happens when we die, do we go on? If there is heaven will we remember our past life? If we don't there isn't really a next life to go to. I can't imagine my thoughts stopping.

    and pointing out my flaws. It can hurt people's feelings and bring them down sometimes. And I wish I could find friends who have the same interests as me...who have a lot in common with me...sigh

    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.

    So on oneness and separateness.

    The way we perceive reality, is either oneness or separateness at any given moment. If i am labelling, projecting, blaming, fearing, then I am separate. When I am in oneness, I am curious and open. My boundaries are intact and well maintained. The bridge, is healthy...
