The time is midnight, you get up to get a glass of water. After having some, you place the water jug on the table and are just going back to bed, when a thought strikes your mind. What if there was an earthquake and the jug fell to the floor as it’s too near the edge. You go back and put it near the center of the table. That person is me! The what if person.
I have this tendency to imagine scenarios, that may never happen. But they still cross my mind. If I am going to lock up the home, I would be thinking what if the key is not in my bag? There are innumerable occasions when fearing the worst or something nearly impossible or improbable has given me a pause.
It may be due to an overactive imagination or a fear of something bad happening in my subconscious. I don’t know if there are more people like me, of am I an anomaly!
Do you have any thoughts like this? I feel that there are many undercurrents in our subconscious that worry our mind with probable and improbable scenarios. These might have roots in our past events or experiences. Or with something that might have happened to someone close to us. It gets to a point where it can turn into a obsession and we should watch out for that and try to prevent that from happening.
