It can hurt ... but it does depend on what you are thinking about of course.  I have a very strong imagination and live inside my head an awful lot.  My thoughts are mostly private and I choose to keep them that way.  

My thoughts can often be constructive and I try to work through problems and have conversations with myself, discussing the pros and cons.

But, sometimes I love to be alone with my thoughts and will deliberately shut myself away and close my eyes.  Those thoughts are the enjoyable ones and an indulgence.

To think for your self does indeed hurt. That is why most people embrace whatever "religion" they happen to be born into...DD

I agree but I tend to move away from the thoughts that are painful and think about the good things, like a newborn babies cry, the sound of a spring bird, water flowing over rocks, etc.

You are so right my friend. I feel the same way. Many thought are enjoyable and even indulgences. Some though are very taxing and very close to home. (((((Hugs)))))
