Thoughts are one of the most powerful things in the universe. You can’t touch or feel them around you, but they can make or break your psyche; like objects effect the aura of a house.
Mentality can change overtime, and thoughts are what provoke change in yourself or another. It’s profound how one of the strongest forces in our world is something everyone possesses but also is an inanimate object that no one can visibly see.
The problem with objects such as those -the ones invisible to the eye- is it can feel like you have no control over them. After all, most people grow up with the notion that you can’t fix something that isn’t there. It can be quite a difficult maneuver to handle your thoughts because you’re never really sure if they’re gone; maybe all you did was just shove them into the back of your head for later.
Thoughts are always said to be dictated by outside influences, but if the voice inside your head is you, then your thoughts must be a manifestation of you and not necessarily others. While thoughts can be guided by such influences, thoughts are made up of the voice inside your head; it’s you controlling what you hear, not necessarily someone else. It can be very easy to get caught up in the myriad of negative thoughts that ensue in the mind. If outside influences are truly what dictate thoughts than perhaps maybe it’s impossible to change what you’re thinking, unless you change the environment in which you think.
It leaves a person to wonder whether you have to realize your thoughts are being dictated by the world and then decide to change your atmosphere, or if you have to have a change of atmosphere in order to change yourself? Perhaps it’s neither, and it’s that you have to realize that you are the only person who controls your thoughts and you’re the one choosing to downgrade yourself; not necessarily that the world is attacking, but that you are letting it attack you.
