Thinking too much
    #1461677 - 04/15/03 09:48 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Anyone ever feel like they think to much or think so deeply about every little thing? I do and its frustrating to not just be able to take life as it is. Its also pretty depressing thinking about the way people act and what not..it's lonely to realize you're the only one that worries about everything....Anyone else feel this way?
By the way-im not sure if this is the right forum but i figured this is where all the thinking goes on  :smirk:so ...might as well......

there is nothing wrong with thinking. i find it amusing that people go through their lives NOT thinking. they accept everything as truth and they lead very ignorant lives. although it can be painful at times to come to sad/depressing revelations, it is still better to know yourself and the world around you.

Yes, i do that, i overanalyze anything, and thinking is definately a major burden, it goes along with the phrase; "ignorance is bliss"

In the words of Dreadlock pussy - "i wish i was stupid....so i wouldnt realize."

i used to think like that, but then i got over it at realized to go with the flow and enjoy my life as much as possible because im going to be dead very soon...very very soon. very very very very soon. in fact, the second before i die i probably think:

shit, what the fuck? im dying? a moment ago i was posting a message about dying...shit! i shoulda been gettin some pussy"

I've been the kid who over analyzes everything, which has greatly hindered my enjoyment of life in the past. Recently, however, I've found that there is great pleasure in understanding things, or trying to understand things, and that this understanding should in no way impede on my ability to flow... I might smile like a fool and jig like a fool (or maybe I don't), but hey, I'm no f-- Dammit. Tried fooling myself again...

you can do both, you can analyze and think about everything, but you can also let it flow over you and enjoy it, it just takes awhile. girlfriends help, so funk and soul music.

My mind races through the day at a pace my physical body could never keep up with. Too many separate thoughts. Yes, it sucks at times to think too much about EVERYTHING because it really does leave you with little time for actual experience.



--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

i used to be super anti-social, and hate the human race. all i would do all day long was read kafka and bukowski and think about everything, which lead me to think i was more intelligent than most humans. but then the FUNK got up in me and i was freakin it here and there and spreadin my love everywhere.

the funk got up in me and a funk child was born

now i lay in the bubble bath and watch alien porn

the funk layed an egg in my skull and blew my mind

now i get up in any sweet smellin pussy a muthafucka can find

dude your far from alone, i think FAR TOO MUCH, so much that i need to take heavy prescription drugs and all this bs to keep me from losing it and being extremely negative
like i used to be, i sometimes am afraid i may even die early cuz my mind is working too hard no matter what almost it seems and i have felt like ive started going insane but justa little bit and that its very possible for me to become psychotic (which i would consider dying pretty much) and i ofcourse fear this and dont want it so i try hard not to think too much or simply take it as a gift and use it to my advantage, i think my mind is powerful (maybe too powerful) and it has amazing potential so much that it could drive me to amazing things but if i lose control of the steering wheel i will crash into insananity

your far far from alone, i know what its like to over analyze things, i do it all the time! it drives me so crazy many many times in the day but i remind myself that everything is cool no matter what if i think this and that anything my mind says and i believe in is FACT for me (e.g. its snowing outside the sun is gone its realllly cold and im having struggling with people and having bad days but if i think the weather is great and that my status is great i will feel great and this will overrun those earlier thoughts of sadness and depression), your mind is a powerful thing and so it can be used to make you the saddest person or the happiest person i just try to laugh at myself and try to smile even when im not happy and when i think way too much i just say who cares and ignore it or think about something great and positive

you cant overanalyze anything, u can call it 'overanalyzing' and then for you it will sound bad probably but if u just call it normal or dont care about it or think its a good thing it will NOT bother you, its your mind and your thoughts and your going to love the advantages of having a strongly observant mind..

ya. before my first mushroom experience, i barely thought at all. i was a sheep wandering through life. now, though, i think about every gosh darn little thing. makes me really depressed. i think thats a side affect/after effect from mushrooms.

oh dear please don't feel weird because you think a lot.

It is weird to NOT think a lot, and unfortunately the masses are getting 'weirder' day by day.

Keep thinking, but turn it down when it comes time to actually DO SOMETHING :wink:

Peace, man :smile: Relax

dood you're definatly not the only one who thinks faaaar too much. I feel like a complete outcast here at college. I used to be kind of an automaton, just living without any real substancial thought, but in the past couple of years I've kind of grown up and now all I do is think, Sometimes they're not even my thoughts, but the person sitting next to me, or a friend who was just thinking about me. (Verified this with multipule people, Im not schezophrenec, sometime my thoughts are others' thoughts) Anyway now that I sound crazy! I know how you feel. It's getting to the point whereI can't really hang out with too many people at once, its overwhelming. At the same time it is VERY VERY lonely to be a 22 year old, smart, caring, good looking, talented martial artist, with no friends...you just gotta keep pushin on...try to find out why certain thoughts are present at certain times. Are they thoughts, or do you worry? You may just have generalized anxiety disorder. I was diagnosed with that, and the gave me buspar, but it made me a Zombie, so now i use the sweet cheeba to settle the nerves some. or try some meditation. That helped me tremendously to calm my mind, and put a leash on it. anyway...good luck.

Could you familiarize me with generalized anxiety disorder please? I have anxiety, but i cant really explain it...i dont care how people perceive me, and i guess i assume most dont like me, but i feel really awkward in the prescence of anyone. This is very noticable to me...because i have tourette's...and they generally only act up while in others prescence...thats how i became aware of my anxiety.

when you overanalyze like that, it seems like you almost become afraid of NOT overanalyzing... like it's become your life, your identity. So what now? you have to wake up next morning and dare to not think about anything... go outside and feel the wind on your body... just feel it. then do it again and again, train yourself back to balance.

nothing is more powerful than being at peace with yourself, it's timeless, it something you feel in every bone in your body and makes the painful and endless search for conclusions seem like just a bad case of diarheea.

I think a lot.

It made me lose 80 pounds.

Cook this french toast I'm eating right now.

Post this post I'm posting right now.

Glad I thought of coming here.

I wonder what I'll do now.

You are definitely not alone. Ive found that thinking too much, has had benefits but also a lot of negative consequences in my life. Ive found thinking too much, especially about the what ifs, what haves, has lead to a lot of unnecessary anxiety, and probably resulted in me making a lot of choices in life that I regreted later. Especially, situations where it would have been best just to act, rather than to analyze and get so caught up in analyzing that i miss the opportunity to act. (if that makes sense)

The fact that you are aware that you are thinking too much, seems to imply that you want to think less? If you do, one thing that has really helped me is Buddhist meditation. I joined the buddhist society at uni, and have got a lot of really great tips on meditating, focusing on the moment, and generally achieving a more peaceful state of mind.

With Metta,
Jono.

You are not alone, and this is the right forum. Its never easy, ignorance is bliss, yes? But I think its currently just a problem in your mind wich you are not able to solve, you will think and think about it for a great while, because...thats what you do. You will soon find an answer that suites you, and this question will be answered in every aspect. Dont be afraid to think out of the box. Most 'breakthrough's in anything often seem to compare ones self to the majority, wishing nothing of the sort would have ever happend. Then, its over. Or is it?
