I don't know whether I should call my self a thinker. I know that I'm not really relax when I don't have anything to do because keep thinking of many things. Sometimes it stress me out because they are too many things in my head. I also afraid that it could make me insane for thinking things that might be beyond measures, things that could be illogical. But I wonder what would in people's mind besides thinking about their business or chores, etc. But sometimes, I like to keep myself busy thinking everything that could be possible in life, in my life. It sometimes keeps me out of my burden, my daily stress and problems. Thinking could be inspirational for me. Maybe this sounds strange to most people but it really is true in me.

caesarin, We humans are sentient beings and, as such, unable to stop thinking. If some of your thought concern you, may I suggest journaling? How about meditation? These are ways in which many people are able to get a handle on their thoughts and clear away a lot of the clutter. Don't criticize yourself for being human!

In my head there is always a lot of clutter going on, a lot of it unpleasant and negative. I believe that I‘m no exception, so the question is whether it’s possible to erase that stuff. I don’t think so, but I can ignore it. Thinking something illogical doesn’t scare me anymore, I do it all the time LOL. And I give myself a lot of leeway and don’t judge myself too harshly for all the nonsense that’s going on in my head. I would get concerned if those crazy, absurd thoughts would influence what I do, the way I interact with other people to a degree where my actions would become unreasonable. But that’s not the case, so I’m not overly concerned.

I'm afraid the negative part would turn me a bad person. I know it's the mind game and I shouldn't let the negatives rule my life. The part I wonder about is why can I become like this. Honestly, I wasn't like this before. Was it because I can't too much pressure in my life? Or I was misled? I try to think positive, to think of everything in positive ways but it's so hard to ignore the negatives, the illogical. I didn't like to judge people but now I do though unintentionally. My brother told me to meditate. It could help. I haven't really try it though. Thanks for sharing.

You have to be a thinker in this era. Think and do things. Without thinking you cannot act nowadays. I also think a lot about work, daily activites, family, friends, worries, problems and somethings don't have an immediate answer but when I keep thinking i tend to find one for myself.
