Where wild minds come to rest
Often I find myself blurting out nonsensical sentences. Somewhat like a stream of consciousness without any meaning. I'm pretty sure it happens when a negative or painful memory or feeling comes to mind. My ego wants to avoid pain so its default defense is to replace the pain with any other thought that will cause a distraction. Weird, I know. I have been making a conscious effort to allow myself to feel whatever is triggering this action. My hope is to confront the issue with my new perspective concerning MDD and any other associated conditions to drain the voltage out of those thoughts. It can be embarrassing though when you're around other people and suddenly blurt out some crazy crap and they look at you like you're an escaped mental patient.
