Have you ever found yourself on a strange train of thought, or find yourself doing things without being able to understand why you’re doing them? First off, you’re not alone. Minds are strange things and it’s perfectly fine to have weird thoughts as long as you don’t hurt anyone. But, if you’re troubled by them or are trying to work through them, maybe you should try putting them on paper.

I’ve found myself plenty of times confused about how I feel about some things, and have a hard time working through them in my own mind. As soon as I try to formulate them to convey them to someone else, which can be done just be writing or typing your train of thought, it gives me reference to fleeting things and allows me to analyze my own reactions and feelings. It’s a good way to be able to take a closer look at what you’re telling yourself, without actually needing to tell anyone. Granted, there are somethings that need to be discussed with others, but this is usually a good first step.

As well, maybe there’s no problem. Maybe you just have a fleeting thought of something you think is cool. Write that down anyway, you can look at it later and expand on it or remind yourself to do it.

The written or typed word can strangely be a good way to communicate with yourself, it’s worth a try to see what it can do for you.
