So the other week I went to get food (unsuccessfully) and had to walk a bit. Saw a storefront called “The Cutting Room.” It was dark and closed (night time) so I didn’t know what is, but my immediate thought was cutting/SH or cutting/butchering place. Turns out “The Cutting Room” was just a haircut place. But funny how my first and second thoughts are so damn dark O_o
I mean it’s not funny but how are we supposed to be all sunshine and roses when we instinctively think certain thoughts? It’s not as if I haven’t TRIED to change my thoughts. All attempts have been unsuccessful. You cannot change instinct or automatic thoughts. You can tell your mind to think happy happy sunshine stuff AFTER your initial thought, but your initial thoughts are automatic.
Like how do we not be so dark and morose? Think of horror or crime writers for example. These people automatically think certain things, and it just comes to them. Hell, they’re probably the few people that are darker than me.
