I Think Too Much

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56,735 People

    My brain never shuts up.

    How is it that when I am finally able to start relaxing, my brain begins to analyze every little piece of the day that I wasn't good enough or how I screwed up. I am my own worst critic. I beat myself up over the littlest things and I can't seem to stop. I always wind up...

    I thought EP was a site

    where you can be honest and let out your feelings and have a bit of fun and make new friends. But looking at how many pretentious people there are its sad to say no one here cares about you or what you go through. There are only 2 people who understand me here and I think I have...

    I don't think people understand how stressful

    it is to explain what is going on in your head when you don't even understand it yourself .

    At work, a type of tactical error is to come

    in like a bull in a china shop - wreaking havoc and causing discomfort for everyone within the proximity. I am completely guilty of this. My only problem is that I have no idea how I am doing that... I know it can't be all THAT bad because management hasn't corrected me in the...

    I feel like the human mind is

    both a beautiful blessing and a chaotic curse. I believe it can be the most dangerous thing in the world. That's why solitary confinement is such a huge punishment. Leaving people all alone to drown in the poison produced by their own thoughts is terrifying. Thinking is what...

    So… dreams. What if,

    in our dreams, we are watching someone else's life? Someone in a different universe. Their life is our dream, and our life is their dream. When we are asleep, they are awake, and we are watching them. And vice-versa.
