What was I thinking?

Most people, at a fundamental level, understand the fleeting nature of thought.

Think about it… What’s usually the first thing we say when we look back on doing something idiotic? Yep…

“What was I thinking?”

At that moment, we’ve recognized the fact that it seemed like the right thing to do at the time. Our thoughts about the situation (which propelled us to do said idiotic thing) seemed very real and concrete.

But now, looking back, we’re seeing it’s all bullshit.

Sure makes ya question how real our ‘problems’ really are, doesn’t it?
