What It’s Like To Be Trapped Inside Your Own Head

One of the biggest issues I’ve faced, now more than before, is keeping myself in touch with the reality outside of me. I feel like this is common in the world today.

With all the technology and ever-growing drive, the generation has, we spend most of our lives thinking and doing. We no longer take the time to consume the work around us.

Everyone experiences this from time to time, but there are those of us who spend more time inside our heads than the average person. We tend to be alone in our heads, than experience the world. In the past I lived inside my head, when I finally chose to experience outside it. I actually felt I had just woke up from a coma. I felt life my head was a prison that tormented me. I was almost shocked by the things going on around me.

Living in a quick-paced world and maintaining a healthy mindset can prove to be very difficult.

Sometimes, we feel like we’re trapped in our own minds, without any idea of how to navigate our way out. I’ll be honest: it can be scary at times.

It’s not that you don’t see or understand the days flying by, it’s that all-time passed before realizing just how much time has pasted is greater for you that it is for most people. When you’re trapped in your head it can be difficult to get yourself to notice the passing of time.

There is a song that’s called ’Don’t Blink’ It says Don’t blink- Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart has became your wife.

This was so true for me. I won’t up and realized the things I’ve done in my life and how much time had gone by, my dreams for a college degree were wasted away.

You’re not just sitting in place and thinking, you’re going about your day, your work, your social life, all the while remaining in your own head.

This, of course, can be dangerous as being on such a constant rotation inevitably wears us out.

Most people don’t understand that our minds, like all other facets of our lives need to be kept tidy.

If we don’t slow down our minds and clear out those thoughts hiding behind the surface, not only will the days pass without us noticing, but we will also feel the effects of the struggle.

You can’t be inside your mind all day without fine- tuning your thought process.

Your mind is a complex filing system. We file thoughts, memories, feelings, and everything else that makes us human, then find ways to link them all together.

Like all things, thinking takes practice. If you want to improve your intelligence, you need to exercise your mind. Likewise, if you don’t use your mind, you lose it. Those who don’t make a point to exercise their minds often end up suffering from disorders life Alzheimers.

Thinking can get you into trouble as it can do you good. Just because you think a lot doesn’t mean you think rationally. Mix that in with a box full of emotions, and you can be incred dangerous to yourself and those around you.

You most likely have a very good understanding of the person you are.

How could you not when you spend most of your life rummaging through the cupboards of your mind.

To be fair, no amount of analysis with experience will do you any good. You need to experience life and all it’s up and downs it offers to understand yourself and your place in the world.

Our lives aren’t all sunshine and rainbows; we still live in a world where human cruelty appalled you, but you’re genuinely happy with who you are, where your heading in life, and how you’re spending your precious time.

Everyone is different.

At times life throws you a curveball, you can get emotional.

This is usually what gets those trapped in our own heads, into trouble. Having time to think and explore your mind is an incredible thing, but only if you stay positive.

When you allow negative emotions to get the better of you, you’re likely headed down a dark path.
