I'm a deep thinker. Here's why.

January 18, 2017


I have had this blog post idea roaming around in my head for some time now. On Christmas Eve, I was actually in this pub and someone said something to me that really stood out and seemed to make everything about me and who I am fall into place.

I got told that I was a deep thinker and that I should cherish having that quality. As much as I am aware that I am a ‘deep’ and ‘preachy’ person as it is, it was overwhelming to see someone admire that quality about me. I think I was actually talking about something as simple as why I’m not studying at university yet, and it really caught me off guard in a good way.

I also got told to not let boys mess me around. As much as I’m a deep thinker, I am also extremely sensitive, and don’t take relationships, break-ups or anything to do with boys well at all. Am I a girl or a potato? Really? But it was another thing that stood out to me. It was as if everything that has happened in my life over the past year had a sort of conclusion and end result. I used to believe that I deserved everything I went through in my break-up last year, and it made me realise, “wait. I’m better than this.”

I’ll probably never meet the person who told me this again. But I know that it’s advice that I will take with me in everything I do in life. Whether that’s now at 18, or when I’m 40 and probably still single with about 10 cats, a box of oreos and a brew.

I now know that my whole view of the world, and the people within it, should be embraced and I shouldn’t be ashamed of who I am. This is me, and I’m flippin’ happy with that.

Love and happiness always,

xo, Becca

  1. I’m a deep thinker myself as well, I totally understand…I also love all of your posts like these, so refreshing to know other people feel the way I do sometimes ❤

  2. Reflective moments like that always happen when you least expected them and/or when you are not looking for them. Go with it, use it to your advantage and let it guide your creativity x

  3. Embrace who you are and be proud of it! It’s amazing that someone you’d never met before said six lovely things, proves that there is good out there! Love this post x

  4. I think about this often and feel exactly the same way. People tell me I’m an ‘old soul’ but I think that’s just translation for passionate, grounded, and young. I try not to live inside my head too much as I’m prone to get stuck there, and it really does help to write and just get out all my thoughts on paper or with art.
