    My Mind Is Never Still....

    I am always berating myself for not being good enough for a start. Someone on another support forum once told me that she was surprised I am still sane after all the emotional batterings I give myself. I constantly worry,berate, analyze peoples motives and am always thinking. My...

    We get stuck in a life full of contradictions

    and all we can do is question or accept that fact. We try to convince ourselves that everything is going to be fine only to end up realising that it isn't and is never going to be.

    Maybe Not Complicated As Much As..........

    Running on a different frequency, and I really don't know if that makes sense either. My mind never seems to shut down, ever. I work on things in my dreams, I work on things when I am awake. It seems that the only time my mind is focused on something other than everything else...

    Thinking In Complicated Ways

    I remember having a teacher when I was in high school who told me I thought in complicated ways. Since then, either consciously or unconsciously, my thinking has always been complex. Some people have told me they think I think in ways that are too complex. However, given the...

    The Mind

    Sometimes the mind can work in ways that cannot be easily understood. Intelligence can be thought to be arrogance, so it must sometimes remain hidden. Walls are built within to shelter the uncommon from the rest.The mind can travel much further than the body itself can. But when...

    Yes, I Do

    I think way too much. I always overthink things, which leads me to worry way more than I truly should. I also analyze things, and I like to know how things work, and often end up figuring it out myself. I like knowing random facts because I want to know as much as possible...

    This really messes up everything in my life

    because half of the time I don't even know what I'm really thinking or feeling. I do the opposite of what I want to do or say for no apparent reason.

    I Worry About Everything

    Unfortunately I have a tendency to worry about everything, even about things that do not concern me. I have been told off, and told to mind my own business, so I do now. Still, I can't help myself. I think too much.

    My Random Mind

    Some would say I have a "very active mind". Others would say I'm crazy, but if you know me in reap life, you know I'm not. Anyway, I think about more things a day than my heart beats, mostly at the same time. At one spot I'd think about a theory, and have an argument with myself...

    What Summer Might Be.

    So far since schools ended, I've spent more time with my friends that live near by and I hadnt really hung out with them as much as I do now. One good thing is that they know so many people that I dont know, so whenever we go out to meet up I meet someone new. I think this is...

    Insomniac

    The sound of pouring rain bouncing of the roof as it hit in hard splashes kept me awake. It had been completely silent if not for the downpour, but for the first time in a long time I felt peaceful. Listening to the water fall down on my roof was calming, relaxing, soothing. I...
