This was a chat with livinlifeallegro. She probably doesn’t remember this as it was a while ago but I saved it because it was so amazing:
We’re both over-thinkers so this chat came from that.
Her: “Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you were never at war with your mind? I think about it all the time.. How I’d be such a different person if I wasn’t so involved in my own mind”
Me: “All the time! I think life would be so much more engaging and effortless without the emotionally taxing baggage that comes with battling with my own mind! like decisions would never be analysed to the nth degree”
Her: “Right? I get so resentful sometimes because some people have it so easy.. And we didn’t ask to have overactive brains, they just happened”
Her: “I wonder how neurotic people get into normal relationships with normal people. It seems sort of impossible. It’s like an evolutionary block put in place to help lower the amount of humans in the world”
