    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.

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