"I know you wouldn't do anything like that."
Do you? I wouldn't?
My mind calls me a monster. Or, rather, my mind is monstrous.
According to my mind, I am the most jealous person in the world.
If I acted on all the thoughts that came into my head I would not be a very nice person. I would be a murderer, racist, sexist, thief, cheater, liar, and jerk.
Luckily I do not act on most thoughts that enter my mind as I do not agree with them, nor am I convinced that they really come from me.
To keep it simple, no matter what evil, perverse thought enters my head I still have the power of choice. I can freely choose whether or not to act on them. So if you find yourself having troubing thoughts, or thoughts that might scare you, I want you to know that you are certainly not alone and I do not think that most of them originate from you to begin with. As long as you choose to not listen to them, to ignore them, or to simply contradict them right then and there with your own thoughts (as I have learned to do), you will find it easier and easier to recognize which thoughts are really coming from you and which aren't.
"But where are they coming from if not from you?"
Well... That's something that we can talk about later, if you wish.
