    ..and then there is the fact that "forced" positive thinking is missing the point. If our reality is that the/our personal world has gone to the dogs, we need to see it hasn't in fact, to change our reasoning. In other words, reality has to change too. It always struck me as odd that we are told that we should live our own lives as according to our true nature, yet when we are facing any kind of mental health issue its slammed against our face. Suddenly we are told how not to think, how some thoughts are damaging etc. Who has that kind of power? Might there not be a real, tangible reason for our disquiet and inner turmoil? Sorry rant. I meant to say in my roundabout, mannerist way, that you are right. Though I dare say that the "bold and beautiful" are probably every bit as effed up as the rest of us.

    .. of course we (I) might be going about all of this wrong way. Finding something worth struggling with (ie. meaningful pursuit, meaning of (ones life??) could be the key to a satisfactory life. So I have heard. Yet "meaning", "meaningful", are concepts that elude this nihilistic mind. The price of our complex mind as you put it, @Depressedgurl007, with it's cogitoergosums and heightened sense of "me" and the discrimination between "me" and everything else, is we also have the capability to stare into the abyss that stares into us.

    “As yet I see little reason to change it.” yea having a reason is the push n pull factor. U have read up on how the human mind works I guess. Humans have abstract thinking, imagination, believes that can go so deep that each person can believe whole heartedly in their religion that their god is the right god. We can’t will ourselves to think once we know all this. Somehow our mind keeps us here on this earth yet it does not give us the reason to keep going. How did we get such a complex mind..what proof is there that all this is even real..what answer or reason r we humans supposed to be looking for..it irks me so that we have no way to control our mind n thinking..to reach that state of happiness that we are supposed to go for. Then again that state is probably the wrong goal. Maybe reaching a state of calmness in the mind should be a better goal. I don’t know. I don’t know anything cos I can’t believe in my mind anymore.

    "I just can't will myself to think positively". There's another quote I will be adding to my signature here on DF. People who urge me to "think positively" are often healthy, well-off, and good-looking. I'm none of those things.

    Do you mind if I copy this into my own blog? That will save me from having to type the very same thing.
