Brain-"storm"

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend in a very disturbed state of mind and I realized these facts about that specific mind and those of all of us in general…


  • Our minds are as complex as hell.
  • The more we try to block out something in our mind, the more it works against you.
  • Share. If we don't, one day it will all explode massively.
  • You can be helped by the people you trust.
  • Though you think you want to get over whatever personal dilemma you're in, sometimes you really don't because you take pleasure in the pain those thoughts bring you.
  • You can be helped only if you truly want to be helped.
  • Laughing off your problems may seem to work but seldom does.
  • You know you can't run away from your problems, but want to try anyway.

Seems like a random bunch of of sayings I already knew, and I'm sure you did too, but that one conversation sure put it into perspective.

Hey man, may the force be with you! :)

For those wondering, the question posed was- 'Should euthanasia be legalised?'
I said- 'Euthanasia should definitely be legalised... Think of all the people out there with crippling illnesses, rendering them helpless.. They have the right to live, therefore must be granted the right to die.. Obviously the cases need to be examined prior to it but it would help so many people relieve the pain and suffering caused to them and their loved ones...'

yes anger can come out one day and it can come out really bad...Ur friend must hv been pretty pissed off...lol but i kinda disagree on some of ur statements...the only person who knws what’s going on is ur friend...."Though you think you want to get over whatever personal dilemma you're in, sometimes you really don't because you take pleasure in the pain those thoughts bring you" pain never get u pleasure unless ur some weirdo or freak. Yes those thoughts do bring u pain, but never pleasure and the pain then develops into anger. “Trust” is not something that can happen easily…it does take time and I am sure ur friend doesn’t trust ppl easily after what he/she mite hv gone thru…no one can run away from their problems, they hvta face them….but there are some problems that you just need to avoid or else the anger that is bottled up inside will surely come out. “Laughing off your problems may seem to work but seldom does” Laughter is the best medicine isn’t it??? Maybe ur friend knws how to deal with his/her probs his/her own way…he/she mite hv been like that all his or her life….what doesn’t kill u makes u stronger and pain well it makes u feel alive…..
Here is something for ur friend:
“I’m not a star. There is no halo over my head. Fate doesn’t like the color of my eyes. Struggle and strife are old friends of mine. Who am I? I’m survival .I’m guts. I'm pride. I like odds, especially when they are stacked against me. Because there will come a time when I will stare them in the eye, n smile .Coz that is the day I will fear no fear, And taste sweat that is sweet ,n look back for the very first time n say, I did it my way -THE LONG HARD WAY!!!”

I’m not saying that pain brings you pleasure in the literal sense.. That sounds a tad sadistic.. What I mean is that the things that are bothering you, painful though they may be.. we sometimes tend to hold on to them because of the memories associated with them.. It’s most often so painful and bitter in the first place because at one point it wasn’t… At one point it was wonderful, and then it soured…
As for running away from problems, some might need to be avoided… but isn’t it better to get it over with? To get the anger out, if that’s what’s going to happen, rather than have it simmer in there, only to result in something far worse at a later date? Hey, to every man his own….Those were merely my thoughts and inferences derived from that particular talk.. Criticisms and personal views welcome..
But those are some beautiful words… Very well written.. Brave (?) to like odds stacked against you, that’s for sure.. But you go dude.. Make it happen!

(-:You do realise that the whole talking in third person thing didn't fool me, right?:-)

going through some of the older posts, thanks to 'GOD', and i just had to add a few things.

Minds are as complex as hell, no doubts, ears make the world go round, but when it comes to help i think you can be helped by no one, and in fact you want no one to help you and you want the thoughts to simmer, you want the impact to be greater, because like in a pressure cooker, if you blow the whistle every now and then, there will be no damage, but if the whistle does not blow and (take an extreme case, there in no safety plug) then the cooker will blast, make an impact, explode as you mentioned, and i think it is better to explode than to let it out in pieces. now this might seem contradictory so let me expand further, even if you release the pressure in small sessions, it will never completely heal, there will be scars and these will be sour, they will do nothing but leave you in a position in which you cant blast but are not devoid of pressure either.

laughing off your problems is nothing but trying to convince your self that the problem has disappeared, and hiding from a problem has never solved it, like you put it.
