The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
One of our major reasons for doing this is so we can feel free to do random shit like drive to an amusement park and kill a few people. The fact is though that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This is a dangerous thing in our lives because we can easily lose control if we stop to think about what we’re doing.
We can’t stop and think about what we were doing, so that we can stop thinking about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car. In this case, I think the idea is that if we stop thinking about it, we are actually running away from the reality because all we can do is try another one and we get trapped back into our own world.
This sounds like my general philosophy on things. I think the problem with thinking about what are doing is that it can lead to us losing control of our life and our actions. We tend to think about every small decision that we make in life as if it were all part of a giant master plan. When we stop to think about it, the consequences just become smaller and smaller until we are back on autopilot again.
On the other hand, it’s not just a concept; it’s a fact. Sometimes the fact is that life is more complex than that and it’s easier to get stuck in an unpredictable world until we finally stop to think about it.
I’m going to tell you a story and you can decide if it’s true or not. I want you to think about this for a moment. In my life I have been a fairly introverted and quiet person. I got into engineering with a job that allowed me to travel and see the world. I was very focused on my job and I didn’t spend much time with my family. I was pretty isolated.
It got to the point where I was almost not going to be able to tell you anything about my life, even after I had a conversation with you. I had a pretty boring job and I hated spending time with people. I was pretty lonely, and I was pretty unhappy.
I get that. In my early 20s I started doing a lot of social media. I started following a lot of interesting people, I started posting on a lot of different sites, and I started putting myself out there to see what would happen. I was very open with people about what I did, and I would have a conversation on a regular basis. I found so much love and support from my social circle. I was so isolated and so unhappy. I was pretty lonely.
I found that very few people I trusted could really understand what I needed or what I was going through. I had to build a group of people who I believed would accept me, and let me be me. They were people that I felt like I could trust because I felt like they would be there for me.
So I figured I would give up my day job and take a job that was far better than the one I was hired to do.I found some very interesting people to talk to, so I wrote about them, and then I got them to talk to me. I found several people to talk to, and then I had a conversation. We could go to bed, I could say that, and then I would talk to them.
