Compulsive thinker, yes, but a compulsive feeler too, which is not always good. Not when it becomes swamping. I must remember to lock all those mean voices away more often, and get a bit of peace, I know they often have valuable things to say, but not all the time and all at once eh?


Being human is a tough gig. Sometimes I envy those who live simply, without all the angst associated with being mindful. Luckily, those feelings don't last long. I realize being a thinking person is so much better, even if it means facing tough reality. Or so I tell myself, being a compulsive thinker...


Good post, thank you. Always such a relief to read about other's imperfections, easy to lose sight of what it is to be human, a daily challenge for me too.
