Thinking Out Loud #17 – Irrational Thoughts

I thought it would be fun to let you all know how crazy I am today for Thinking Out Loud Thursday and tell you about some irrational thoughts I have more times in my life than I’d like to admit.

Irrational Thought #1:  “I’m going to be alone forever” 
This one. All. The. Time.

Irrational Thought #2: Someone throws a cigarette out their window and I run it over … my car is going to blow up.
I feel like another blogger just said something about this, but SERIOUSLY. It happened to me again this morning.

Irrational Thought #3: This person isn’t texting me back … they hate me. 
I’m one of those crazies that has trouble with the no texting back thing. I have my phone on me ALL THE TIME. If I don’t text you back, either I hate you (unlikely because I hate very few people) or I’m busy but I’ll text you back as soon as I’m not.

Apparently though, you’re not supposed to text people back right away. You’re supposed to be elusive and make people work for your. This is probably why #1 is currently true.


Irrational Thought #4: Severe Thunderstorm Warning? There’s going to be a tornado and I’m gonna die.
Honestly, the only part I hate about warmer weather are the storms. I am terrified of the word tornado. Say tornado watch and I won’t be able to eat all day. Yes, dumb. I know.

Irrational Thought #5: I’m going to be stuck in this place in my life forever.
This is a thought/fear I have multiple times a week year. This is based on location, job, singleness, happiness, weight loss, lack of friends, etc. Basically it’s a pile of pessimism lumped into one thought. I have location commitment issues and I constantly want to up and move somewhere new.

Irrational Thought #6: My cat is trying to kill me.
I actually don’t think this is irrational.

Irrational Thought #7: If I wear the wrong outfit during a Packer game, they’ll lose. 
It’s only weird if it doesn’t work, right?


I can only wear this particular shirt when they’re playing the Bears, obviously, but the rest of my outfit has to be the same that I would normally wear throughout the season.

I’m sure I have about 1,000 more irrational thoughts (most of them involving guys, let’s be real), but I figured I’d stop at seven. What about you? What is something you think about that you know is irrational?

    Ohhh the joys of our irrational mind, eh? I always worry that a bird is going to poop on me when I walk under a tree, or that something is going to grab my legs and drag me under when I’m in water and I can’t see my feet. No idea where those came from, but there ya go…

      Haha yes! I’m with you on the begging dragged under water thing. Or I used to have this weird fear of stairs that weren’t enclosed – like someone would grab my ankle or something.
