Today I’m contemplating the idea that “They are only Thoughts,” so why do I feel the need to share them in writing? This is a quote for a definition from the page: “’Thought’ generally refers to any mental or intellectual activity involving an individual’s subjective consciousness. It can refer either to the act of thinking or the resulting ideas or arrangements of ideas. Similar concepts include cognition, sentience, consciousness, and imagination.” And I’ve written about how I feel like I’m always, thinking about my thoughts, in this post The Word is Metacognition!
But I guess the real question is Why do I feel the need to share this fact in writing and what’s the point? And I don’t really think that I’ve got an answer to this very puzzling question. Although this simplistic answer did come to mind That my therapy in writing is associated with me putting my thoughts into words and then writing them down. This may be due to the fact while writing I’m not obsessively thinking the same thoughts over and over again; this offers me some relief or satisfaction from this type of over thinking things, and it’s just a theory.
So this concludes my writing practice and like I said, “They are only Thoughts,” but then why do I feel like I’ve shared too much information? Oh, that’s just your typical paranoia and your other psychological barriers giving you trouble again. You’d think you’d be over this kind of nonsense, but you’re not!
Thanks for Listening,
