“You know what really drains my energy?” I asked. “My mind returning to the same thoughts over and over and over again.”

“Did you suffer some kind of trauma?” he inquired.

“Are these negative thoughts, though?”

“No, no. It's not like that. Some are negative. But not all.”

“The rest are positive?”

“Well, mostly. Helpful. Encouraging. Constructive! Yes.”

He nodded. “I see.”

“Why does this happen? Why can't my mind shut up?”

“Oh, that's simple. You're crazy.”

“What? Most of the world is like this! How can that be crazy?”

“Did you think you invented this all by yourself?”
