This is a short one.
Today I met with Demande for our usual (3 times a week) meeting. After the meeting we spent some time just talking and drinking.
He said something that just floored me. He said, “I think you have a peaceful heart, but [I don’t know if this is the right English] your brain…it’s like…noisy.”
I’ve never heard anyone describe me so succinctly yet so accurately. I was beyond shocked. The only thing I could say was, “Yeah, noisy. That describes me perfectly.”
I think that’s how I’d like to describe my brain from now on. My brain is noisy when I only want it to be quiet. This is why I have distractors like copious amounts of TV and noise canceling headphones.
Yes, I have anxiety. Yes, I have depression. Yes, my brain is noisy.
