I am always trying to understand myself better, and my thought processes. My emotions and reactions to things that happen in my life. The big why?

What fascinates me most about our mind is how our emotions can take on a life of their own. Our emotions hijack our thoughts, and before you know it you have said something or done something that you later regret. Or have no idea why the fuck you did
