This is for the deep thinkers. The ones who are always invested, the ones who are always all in, the ones who love simplicity and complexity all at once. You are the humans that have a mind that never quite gets put to rest. You have the heart that doesn’t stop loving, ever. You have the strength to move, always.
Us deep thinkers, can sit in thought for hours, whether there is someone sitting next to us or not. Whether someone else cultivated the questions we are asking ourselves. Whether our thoughts make any sense at all or just confuse us. We sit, we wait and we learn.
This type of thinking requires respect. It requires courage to be vulnerable within your thoughts. The thoughts that sometimes make you feel a little uneasy. It requires kindness. The type of kindness that gives you permission to feel that type of way. It requires openness. The type of openness that is uncomfortable but safe all at once.
Deep thinkers don’t focus on definitions they focus on ideas. Ideas that constantly change and challenge. Ideas that make you step up your game and sharpen your thoughts. Ideas that ask hard questions with simple answers and easy questions with complex answers.
We don’t like small talk. We want to talk about love and aliens and things people think don’t exist. We talk about the meaning of life, fears and twisted concepts. We want to talk about the things that make us feel something. That give a reaction and come from a place of pure emotion. Deep thinkers don’t like words like impossible, normal or easy. We want to get to know people on a level that most find weird and uncomfortable. To know why people are the way they are. To genuinely care about their views of life.
To the deep thinkers who get stuck in their thoughts …
I hope you know that when things don’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
I hope you know that the best thing to be is to be undenyingly curious and to act upon that curiosity.
I hope you know not to force things that don’t fit.
Lastly, I hope you know the difference between the things you want and the things you need.
Now go, go think, feel and love.
