    I wish I had one gigantic off switch,

    to turn off the whole world around me so that I could bury myself under several layers of comfort of god knows what description. I had an experience yesterday that has left me terrified, horrified, and dirty. No amount of scrubbing will take this stain off my soul. I'm...

    I wish I could turn my thoughts off when I start thinking about a certain person but otherwise I love my thoughts.

    This constant thinking,

    I Hate Intrusive Thoughts

    I can't control them. I have to consciously think the opposite. It is really exhausting. If I could just shut them off I would have a lot more peace. I hate involuntary thoughts. They are always negative.
