Think Too Much

This is not a “real” post — just evidence to the fact that I think too much.  I’m not about to go into details about the surrounding  circumstances, not in a public forum, but these are just some of the random musings to which my mind has been host recently.  Feel free to answer any or all of them, as I’m not quite sure what I think, myself!

  • How far would you go to stand by a family member who’s done something wrong?
  • Does it matter what they’ve done?  Would you draw the line somewhere — assault, theft, rape, murder?
  • Would it make a difference whether you’re related by blood or by marriage?
  • Why is it that things which ought to bring people together can instead tear them apart?
  • How is it that people can be so oblivious to their own faults — to the extent that they view themselves as possessing exactly the opposite attribute?
  • What do you do when you’re caught between a rock and hard place?
  • When is it better to play deaf and dumb, and when is it better to get into something that might hurt and will definitely stir things up?
  • What do you do when you are so angry that you can’t even see straight, but you can’t tell anyone or do anything about it because you don’t know if it would just be a venting session or if you’d blow up?
  • When did the world become so populated with crazy, greedy, self-righteous people?
  • Why is it that no matter what happens to make this blatantly obvious, I will never learn that whatever I do will never be good enough, and that the only person anyone can ever really trust is themselves?

…And I think I will stop there, though I could on for quite a while longer.

Regular posting will hopefully resume tomorrow.  Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. I’m glad to see someone else’s mind plays host to as many random thoughts as mine does! Problem is the more I try to answer my musings the more they seems to build up, sort of like trying to untangle a ball of yarn and only having it grow more knotted. 😉
    Between a rock and a hard place? Use the rock to break through!

  2. Yikes, tough questions all around. Feeling conflicted about people you did/do care about is the worst. E-mail me if you need…

    i don’t know what i do when i’m so angry i can’t see straight. i start punching things/become extremely violent.

    unfortunately our world just became like that, and full of selfish people with a cash register for a heart.

    i always think that i’m never going to be good enough. never. sometimes i give up, but i just dust myself off and try again. complete with totally unheard of overachiever goals.

  4. Okay, this is weird: all of these questions you posed are, unfortunately, things that I have been asking myself lately as well. (Mostly the first half of them.) It’s tough and I wish I had some answers but I don’t. If you ever want to talk, let me know!

  5. If a family member did something wrong I would confront them and tell them how I felt it was wrong. That being said I wouldnt stop loving them. I dont blame people for their faults, we all have our demons. Doesnt matter to me if Im related to them by blood or not.

    I think it’s easy to see how people can be oblivious to their faults. I was oblivious to my ED for years.

    When im that angry I try to cool off. Go for a walk, watch a movie I love. Try not to talk to people because I know ill say mean things..

  6. fukk my computer crashed when i was freaking writing my comment. URGH i had some good answers. i’ll just say that i REALLY enjoyed these questions. ive spent 20 min so far answering them in my head! now thats determination hehe. I REALLY LOVED THESE BECAUSE THEY STUMP ME AND MAKE ME PROCESS THEM TOWARDS MY OWN LIFE AND HOW I VIEW THEM OR WHICH ONES I HOLD MORE IMPORTANT etc. thank you ❤

  7. I’m with the above commenters, I’m stumped! (And here for you.)

  8. I can answer some of them from my perspective, but I don’t think there are any right answers! My mum would kill me for saying this but I couldn’t stand by family members if they did anything truly awful. Murder and rape would be unforgiveable in my eyes. When I’m so angry I can’t see straight, I go away for a few hours, try to talk to someone completely impartial about it to see if I’m over-reacting, and then take time to talk/write to the person who upset me as calmly and non-judgementally as I can, so I can understand what they were thinking and try to work things out with them. Obviously that doesn’t work all the time – if it’s a good friend hopefully it will just be a case of crossed wires and apologies, but some people just don’t give a crap. Also, sometimes I react straight away and get myself into trouble! I tend to wade into things if I think other people are getting hurt as well as myself, but it’s a pros and cons thing, there was one major thing a few years back in which I didn’t do the brave thing at all, I chose to live with keeping quiet. Maybe that’s why I’m such a gobby person now, hehe.

    I don’t know what prompted you to ask these questions but I know you’ve said before that you don’t feel you can trust people. I’ve felt like that in the past too. I still believe that it’s important to feel self sufficient, but I have also found people who I can trust not to hurt me or let me down. I am sorry you see the world as such a dark place ❤ I wish someone could help restore your faith in humanity!
