    When I express my inner thoughts,

    someone always goes to someone and says something. Which wasn't needed.

    Effort

    Today Ive been thinking about effort all day. As I speak with friends it keeps popping up in my head. How important effort is for all of us. I never thought about it a lot but it stuck with me today. We can have many desires and many wishes. We can have talents and skills that...

    Sometimes, id rather be alone

    than go out with my friends when im having some problems of my own. I just want to curl up in my bed and reflect rather than talking it out to someone who can possibly knock me out of my senses.

    Lights Out. Headphones In. Ignore The World For A While

    Over the past year, I have spent many late nights, in darkness, listening to select songs, and reflecting on my life in general. It all began close to a year ago, I was sitting in my room, listening to music. Dark, and depressing songs, and I wasn't listening to these songs...

    does it really? Or does it just come from your conscious

    To me, being alone with my thoughts give me the

    opportunity to reflect and think back whatever that had happened recently or on that day. It makes me understand various things that I don't at that moment of time and gradually improve entirely as a person. I guess, it's almost a habit of mine, to think through everything and...

    I honestly like being alone,

    thinking to myself with do distractions, no noises, and no problems, because I'm in my own little world. When I'm like this I'm free...... Free from everyone and everything. Just, FREE.

    Free Your Mind

    Nothing that exists asked to exist,

    because something has to first exist before it can ask for anything. So every entity is trapped in its own essence, only able to do what it's essence allows or it can only work with what is in front of it to create something new. I didn't ask to exist, or choose my mind, body...

    Nothing can't ask for anything.

    So no entity that exists asked to exist. Every being trapped in what its essence permits. What did we have a choice in, in the first place? How we look, the mind we have, the world we were born into? No, we didn't choose those. We have raw materials the world gives us to work...

    and just standing there and thinking. I don't see how people could not think deeply about themselves for a bit, it helps with coming up with conclusions
