I "What If"

    When I am seeing any kind of news

    or seeing something new that doesn't quite make sense I will do a lot of what if scenarios in my head until I come up when the one that feels right. I find this to be a great way to exhaust the many different considerations no matter how ridiculous. It also is a good way to...

    What if, I made that move.

    .. What if I've done something different. What if? Back in high school, I met this girl. I was in ESL, and so was she, the first day she came in she stunned me and I quickly looked way as the teacher introduced her. You see, I wasn't very bright in high school, but I had a...

    So many subjects... What

    if I had gone into music in college right from the start? Where would my life have led? What would I be doing now? I am (finally) pursuing that dream of teaching music in the schools, but it's a long hard road at this age.

    If" And this is why I have started hating days off and summer brakes because if I am alone doing nothing to occupie my brain other wise I find myself thinking, worrying and stressing out.. Like, "what if I fail high school" "What if I can't get a job" "what if I can go to...

    I try to avoid this question

    as much as I can because asking this question has driven me crazy in the past...What's done is done and there's nothing I can do about it.

    I've noticed over the past year I have began to

    feel this upheaval deep inside me. I want to change my life. I need to change my life. I am too tired to keep giving all of myself to people that don't want it nor appreciate it. HOWEVER, I am one of those "what if" thinkers. Am I really making the best decision for me, what if...

    What makes you think we're not alone?

    How about having what you wish? Are you seeing what you think is real. The list goes on and on how about you?

    I thought if I loved someone

    and then it fell apart, I might not make it. Because; what if you learn that you need love and then you don't have it. What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is...

    I always think the worst.

    "What if I do that and people think I'm dumb?" "What is as I walk through the door, I trip and fall in front of a cute guy?" This never ends ):

    I would like those of you

    who have been diagnosed with Autism at an early age to come and talk with me. I would like to know how you view the world in your eyes. This is more for posterity and study and understanding. It would be such a major breakthrough to find the missing key to communicating and how...

    What if I had met my soul mate

    when we were living not ten miles from each other? We even went to rival high schools (though a few years apart). Would she have even been my soul mate at that time? In any case, I'm so glad I found her, now. I'm sorry I caused my family so much pain when I left home, but I...

    What if..... ...I could whisper your name

    and could feel it too? ...I walked in the room and you didn't see me. You turned to me and smiled because you felt me? ...If stepped behind you and wrapped an arm around your waist, our hearts synchronized. ...Our breath in synch as we swayed in the kitchen to a tempo we...

    I like to really think through the

    why of things going on around us in the world today. Unfortunately that means r running a lot of "what if" scenarios through my head. I find it works best for me to consider a scenario no matter how plausible it might be and think it through. Then decide how well it fits the...

    I suppose I tend to over-think things.

    A lot. Sometimes it's a good thing and other times it's a real pain in the butt lol. For example, when faced with a problem or any kind of scenario that requires one to actually think, I like to try and look at it from every angle I can to find the best solution, even in video...

    What If... What? No way,

    am I going there. Been there and done that. What if...blah blah blah.... Well, it is what it is! So, what if I don't worry about something I cannot do a blasted thing about.
