    I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one

    who experiences this, but at some point, everyone thinks too much. We fantasise and overthink to the point where we create tremendous amount of problems that don't even exist.

    Nothing is ever how it seems.

    Theres way more than two sides to every story. Do not settle, do not conclude, and never stop asking why.

    I'm an intellectual. I enjoy pondering

    different situations. I love examining things from different angles in order to gain a better understanding of subjects. But sometimes my intellect gets me in trouble where I overthink some things. There are situations in life where it's better to just act and not worry over the...

    I also use the word think too much.

    That could be a sign that I'm not really thinking. A simple twist of fate defuses the ticking time bomb of thought. Consequence smiles, and toots it's little smelly horn dust.

    I can't sleep. Going through an old photo album

    and suddenly I see you in the background of the picture... It throws me right back in time. I stood in the courtyard with a soccer ball at my hip...admiring you as you were working on my grandmothers home in Esfahan. Carving intricate flowers and grand designs--you were an...

    I feel like I always have to keep my mind busy

    because once I'm just alone thinking, I feel so lonely and sad. It's crazy to even feel that way and it tends to happen a lot. And I feel like I'm being really selfish because I know there's a lot of people who care about me.

    Isn't online rejection worse in some ways

    than rejection IRL. IRL, you can be rejected for lots of reasons. The kind of car you drive, the clothes you wear, your career choice, your education level, bad breath, type of music, and really the list goes on and on. Here, you are rejected by who and what you really are...

    Right now I am writing this

    while I am in a train, I have no idea wether it's a choice that I made that made me do what I do or is it just someone talking to me telling me what I suppose to do. Life is just a secret that looking for an answer. Truth and reason and all the tools we use to explain things...

    My brain won't turn off.

    I overthink, especially at night. I have no idea how to not think. Thinking of you... again. The more I think, the more confused I get. I'm fighting to get you out of my head, but I'm holding on to every word that you ever said.

    Emotions are energy in motion.

    That means that our individual energy shifts and changes with our emotions. The more powerful the emotion.. The more energy. That's why energy vampires play on our emotions!!! They don't have emotions or a life force. Trust me. I know. I married one. There is no energy coming...
