It’s been a couple of weeks since I have done a question segment. If you have kept up with this blog than you probably have a good idea how busy I have been. This week we have 3 questions from 3 fellow bloggers. I will link their blogs on their names so please check them out after you have read today’s segment of course. lol

As with every word posted in this blog the questions answered in this post are that of InJensMind. They are my opinions and are not intended to insult or offend anyone.

If you would like to have your question answered please contact me on any of the social networks you find listed on the Find Me On page at the top. You can be anonymous or use your name, it’s up to you. The deadline every week is Saturday 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time.  Hope to answer your questions soon. Happy Sunday!

 

So we all have voices in our head, a constant inner conversation. Why do you think that is?
                                          -Ropcorn

Dear Ropcorn,

Our brains are very complex. There is so much going on in there that even scientists still don’t know everything about it and its entire purpose. Thoughts and memories fill most of our conscious mind. Our subconscious mind is just as full of these thoughts. A normal mind will have many reoccurring and new thoughts in a lifetime, because our brain is always trying to process what we’ve seen, heard, or thought. Unlike the voices heard in mental illness, these “conversations” are completely normal. It’s also completely normal to hear voices in our heads such as our own, the people we know or have heard on TV, movies, or radio, or even complete strangers we ran into for a second on the street.

When we are asleep, our dreams are our way of figuring out issues; so our brains constantly replay the events of our life that we need help with. This is the subconscious mind at work. While awake we are more attentive of the thoughts because it’s in the forefront of our minds; the conscious mind at work. I don’t think anyone will ever fully understand how our brains work or why we constantly talk to ourselves in our heads. I just see it as a normal thing that happens when we want answers. After all, we are curious by nature and it makes sense that we would constantly be in search of what we do not understand. Therefore our minds will never stop looking for those answers even if it’s just inside of our heads.

I’ve a question, why is it that people who aren’t right, insist they are?
                                                         –Tbaoo

Dear Tbaoo,

The first thing to take into consideration is that a good number of people think they know everything. A lot of people believe they are right because they were taught by someone who thought they were right  who also were taught by someone that was wrong. For example, American History books teach us many things that were not accurately portrayed. Frankly, I blame a lot of racism on the fact that because other races and immigrants were not properly portrayed in the books; people actually believed what they were told. Nowadays with the internet and documentary’s we find out those things were wrong.

Some people will just admit their mistake and drop it, and then there are those who won’t. They’d rather keep arguing than to admit that something they have believed their whole lives was a lie. Pride and ego are a colossal determining factor when it comes to being right or wrong.

So here are the reasons why someone might insist they are right when they clearly are not. 1- They honestly believe what was taught to them is a fact so they don’t realize that they are wrong. 2- They know they are wrong but, refuse to give in; from either pride, ego, or their love of arguing. 3- They are set in their ways, overly opinionated, or just refuse to believe that anyone else could possibly know more than they do.

Why do people insist on saying they have done 110% when it is mathematically impossible to go over 100% ??                                                          -Raising Amelie

Dear Raising Amelie,

The whole ideology behind giving more than what is mathematically possible; is that you are not only giving your all but, that you are going beyond that. In other words, you are giving or doing more than what is necessary to carry out the task. For example, 150% might mean your effort plus half of another’s effort. 200% would be double or two people’s worth of effort.

I think some people insist on saying it just because they want to emphasize that they didn’t give a portion but, that they gave more.                                                                                                                             –InJensMind

    Jenni,

    Great questions even better answers…. It is important to stand you ground hen you think you are right but if proven wrong give in and accept it learn something new.

    Those of you whom do not know the meaning of giving it your all + some will never know the truth of the matter and what it is to go above and beyond. It is not worth doing anything unless you give it 100%+

    Great answer to my question Jen! It definitely made a lot of sense. Although those “voices” can be a bit too much some days. Hehe. And thanks a ton for linking to my blog! :p

      Yes those voices can be very overwhelming at times. I suppose that is why many people love meditation. Something I should probably start doing to help focus my thoughts and weed out the ones that are a constant distraction. Thank you so much for sending a question in and I am glad you liked the answer I gave. No problem about linking your blog, it’s what one should do. 😀

Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. -Voltaire
