“For everything that dwells inside of you, please don’t live the lie of a life they try to feed you. They work so hard to hold you down, force it into your thoughts until nothing that is you remains. Eventually those around you who’ve become overtaken, work just as diligently to beat it out of you. The moment they see it, smell it, hear it, feel it, they want to crush it because it’s everything they’ve lost in the end.”—
"We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It`s a death trap." -Anthony Hopkins
A car passes, an owl makes its late night call. I look over at the full length mirror across from my bed. Staring into myself I wonder why I do this. My head turns to look up at the ceiling and I stare at the Hawaiian sarong with tribal patters and dolphins placed upon it. Released from with in, an exhale. My hands then placed upon my face, trying to forget about it all.
The silence. The silence is comforting, calming me for a brief moment. And then there it is again, that thought digging, picking apart my brain. Over analyzing my every thought, action, word, I have become my own worst enemy. The sounds of the cricket outside becomes my focus. Lulling me slowly, my eyelids become heavy and my mind strolls its way into the dream world it has created.
