Thoughts Challenged#1: If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?

inspiration, life

So recently, don’t ask me how, I have bumped into this great blogsite. It’s mostly about life and everything around it and most of the posts are pretty inspirational and motivating.
Hence, I sort of decided to answer a few questions and sort of just write my opinion on stuff. So, yes, this will be a new regular thing that I will hopefully pull through. And to let you know, those aren’t just any random questions. I have based my questions on this blog and I hope you can get some thinking done as well. So, the challenge is set for 10 questions, starting from today. Enjoy :)

Alright, it kind of took me some time to find out how I talk to myself. Everyone speaks to him/herself sometimes, the elderly people do it more often than the younger people but still – you sometimes speak to yourself. Nevertheless, I pretty much talk a lot to myself in my head and imagining my mind being a friend of mine… wow! I don’t think that friendship would last long. And yes, that is a clever question to answer right there. Anyways, I will conclude later. First off the reason.

The friendship would probably start off pretty well since we share the same views and opinions. However, as soon as the friendship goes more into the deep emotional level where serious talks start to begin, I wouldn’t know how I could cope with that friends’ compelxity, confusion and complication.
That friend would just constantly overanalyse things and would throw reproaches against her/himself and I wouldn’t know if I could handle all the negativity since it would mark off on myself as well. Truth is, I don’t like to be around negative people. I used to be around several negative people in my life and I have shut them out but they left a mark on me. Their attitude left a mark on me and I still find it hard to overcome that way of thinking. However, I am glad that the people who I let in are pretty optimistic and great people who have their goals and most importantly, believe in themselves. 

So yeah, now the conclusion and the reason why I think this question is pretty sneaky:
It makes you think about the thoughts you have in your head. Now thinking about what I am mostly thinking about isn’t something that should be continued. If you ask yourself and analyse the things your mind thinks, good for you if they are good and great, but if they are like mine, overcritical and insecure, then of course changes have to be made.
This leads and reminds me of the Proverbs 4:23 “Be careful what you think because your thoughts run your life.”
