Anyone else here constantly getting lost in inner monologues?
I can't focus on anything lately. Everytime I try I just lose myself in some imaginary conversation which inevitably ends into me explaining some vain idea or concept to a non-existing audience. I will spend hours walking circles in my room talking to the floor, sometimes repeating the same sentences over and over until I get it right.
I'd write some of it down if it weren't all such utter nonsense.
me too, probably the weed but also been talking to myself since i was a kid, so it's hard to know for sure.
on one of my shroom trips my entire life flashed before my eyes. i thought that was Hollywood bullshit until that happened.
my point is that i learned that the human mind has all the information there already, it just needs to re-arrange and access it, that's the tricky part.
maybe our inner monologues are our way of re-arranging intangible pieces of information?

I literally couldn't sleep last night because of this, and I can't have any more sleeping meds until I go into the doctors for a checkup.
Not inner monologue, but I do get pretty deep into imaginary/hypothetical conversations with people real and fake.
For example, I'm writing a novel right now and I drifted off for like twenty minutes imagining a conversation that I would have on a podcast I listen to if they invited me on as a guest.
Also sometimes after talking to someone I'll kind of replay the conversation in my head but with different outcomes.
>I'd write some of it down
Fucking write it down. Might give you a good idea for later, or maybe some good reference material, or just to practice writing. Turn it into a little story or whatever. At the very least you'll feel like you turned something nearly worthless into something real. Something a bit more fleshed out.
I've done that like twelve times over.
It's good though because writing it down in the first place helps you remember the general ideas and the actual writing process gets you to develop those ideas further.
Read like two words in, get disgusted, and kill it with fire for the fear of other people finding it and somehow tracing it back to you. It's gonna be absolute garbage in the beginning. But trust me you're gonna start writing stuff that you really enjoy and can even bear to reread later on.
I'm not that guy, but I'd say don't take the meds. If you're staying up thinking about shit, that's probably good. Means you got a mind and you're using it. You don't need to water yourself down.
Watch this, he makes a good point: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbVhbQPblNY
It's more mellow dramatic, so I'd say go for it.
Haha, sounds like a great idea, I'll make sure to tell them that next time.
If anything interesting happens I'll respond here or make a new thread if this one is archived by then. It's just my mental health, nothing important right?
This is literally me.
>often imagine being a substitute teacher that just gets up in front of the room & yells for 6 hours
>imagine successfully convincing my parents that the economy & government are completely fucked
>imagine infodumping some poor cashier I work with with a bunch of cringy medical facts/statistics followed by numerous death statistics/etymologies
>the rest of it is just talking to myself about my mental state/world views/values/principles & how they've changed overtime
>all these people stating how they can not stop thinking
It's a good thing, you faggots. High brain activity is to be used. Get off 4chan and go read a book.
This happens to me all the time.
