All I Have Are Negative Thoughts
If every day that you wake up and go about your day experiencing negative, twisted, sadistic or evil thoughts, then you are not alone! The human brain is the most intricate and mysterious organ of the human body. Even with dissection upon an autopsy, what does a physical specimen tell us about our thoughts? Absolutely nothing.
Your thoughts make up who you are, but this does not mean that you should identify with them. The moment that you start understanding this, is the moment when you will start to slowly obtain freedom from your disturbing and uncomfortable thoughts. Freedom comes when you paradoxically care less.
If you continue to fight against your thoughts, you will always lose the battle. Guess what happens when you repeatedly fight against them? You’re increasing your chances of developing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This is when you obsess so much over your disturbing thoughts, that you begin to develop ritualistic, compulsive acts to alleviate yourself from them.
Guess what happens when OCD hits you? You become imprisoned by your mind; it starts to take control of you. And the more that you attempt to pull away from OCD, the greater it pulls you back in under its control and influence. So you start considering seeking solutions, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or antidepressants.
It basically becomes a messy show. Hence, why the solution to your negative thoughts is to just allow them to be; let them swarm your mind like a bunch of piranhas eating away at smaller tasty fishes. Adopt a carefree mentality no matter how disturbing your thoughts are; just don’t care anymore!
The key to unlocking yourself from your mental prison is to prevent the prison from forming in the first place.
