I’m going to start this post with a quick tangent because it is an important one, one that I’ve learned from a lot of my own experiences and those of my friends. What I mean by that is that we may not be aware of our thoughts, actions, or emotions if they are happening without our conscious awareness. These thoughts, actions, and emotions can manifest in a myriad of ways.
The most common manifestation are “negative” thoughts, such as “Why do people do this to me?” or “Why do I have to be the one to do this to someone else?”. They can also be more subtle. A lot of times these negative thoughts are the result of emotions that we feel that are triggered by a situation.
Negative thoughts are the result of the subconscious mind trying to block our thoughts from reaching our consciousness. There is a lot of research that shows that our thoughts are often inaccurate. It is possible for someone to have a negative thought and not even realize it, and then later on have a positive thought. The same thing can happen with beliefs and emotions.
As it turns out, a lot of the time, these negative thoughts are a result of our emotions. For example, when you’re upset, you might think you’re going to get raped (remember the movie Assault on Precinct 13?), and that’s the reason you keep going over the edge. This kind of thinking can lead you to believing that a certain person has done something to you.
This “negative” thinking is a type of self-deception. It’s much like our “bad” thoughts. In most cases it’s a defense mechanism that protects us. It just so happens that it works in our favor because when we’re upset, we can actually “get” what’s happening and stop it. However, when we’re upset, we can’t actually stop it, and we don’t notice that we’re upset until it’s too late.
I think this is when we have our own bad thoughts. However, people will have bad thoughts that do not actually hurt us in any way so we just chalk it up to a coincidence that we think that way. Most people do not think that way, but they can get into bad thoughts. It’s like a vicious cycle in our mind.
I think we are getting into a really bad habit of seeing the world in black and white. We have good thoughts and bad thoughts, and we let them build up until we have a bad thought that really hurts us. We might not even realize it. It might be that we keep it to ourselves until it gets to a point that we just can’t keep it out. I think that is why we often blame things on things in our lives.
People often say that they don’t think about the future. But that’s because they never have. So when they do think, they’re not thinking about the future. But don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the thought, I’m just not thinking about it.
You might be thinking that I am being harsh, but I do think that when we focus too much on the future, we miss out on the present. We get so caught up in our goals and wants that we forget to look at the world around us. So I think it is perfectly okay to focus on the present. I just think you should be glad that you dont have to focus on the future.
The only thing I am worried about is whether or not i will still be here when it comes time for me to die. I fear it might be a little too late for that. I do think it would be a shame, though, if I wasnt here to see it happen. But I dont know if I would be able to even do that in a world without my memories.
