Why do you think what you think?

Your thoughts are not you.

Your thoughts may not even originate from you.

Thoughts come and go.

Some are bad.  “I want to hurt/kill/rape that person!”  Don’t be hard on yourself because of them.

Some are good.  “I want to save the world!”  Don’t take too much credit for those.  😉

Some thoughts we hold on to.  We label those our ideas.  Our beliefs.

Some people cling to their ideas without questioning whether those ideas help them or hurt them.

Some people share their ideas.

Some to control others.

Some to improve the world.

Trying to be authentic

One of the problems I have with social media is that most people only show the good part of their lives.

I’m all for positivity.

But surely not everything in your life is wonderful.

Surely you have bad days.

I want to know who my friends really are.  Good and bad.

I haven’t been one to share much of anything.

I’m making up for that now.  😉
