We have big ideas. We really do. I think it surprises us sometimes. We like to think big and ponder the great ideas of the universe. We ask questions and search for answers whenever we are faced with something new. Thinking big makes us feel alive, makes us feel like we are contributing to a greater conversation. But what happens when “thinking big” turns against us? Is it possible to think too big?
When I focus too much on you, I find myself getting lost. I get lost in endless thoughts that seemingly spiral out of control when I stay too long. I forget to be present in life, and that leads me to a state of uneasiness. When I get lost in you, I get lost period. But how can that be? You are me. I am you. How can I become lost in myself?
