Does anyone else get sudden bad thoughts?

These are called intrusive thoughts. It happens to everyone.
Yes everyone has random odd out of character thoughts just pop into our minds at times.
They’re often just the “monkey mind” chatter of our brain. The best thing is to just notice them, and let them be. don’t judge them or label them as “bad” or “unwanted”. Don’t try to push them away or analyse them or get emotional about them.
Just notice them and think “They’re just thoughts”. And thoughts aren’t facts. And thoughts aren’t acts.
thank you! this seems like it will help :)
Yes everyone has random morbid thoughts whether they say they do or not. It's our mind using its imagination
Something similar happens to me. I get random suicidal thoughts that I haven't acted on.....like "If I jump off this overpass, would I die from hitting the pavement or from a truck hitting me?". I've heard it called "The Call Of The Void".
They're just random uncomfortable thoughts.....they won't hurt you or anybody else unless you act on them.
yeah, i get those too but i wasn't *super* comfy putting that in the main text of the post lol :/
Not anything to myself, but things to others, definitely. Thats why I make sure I don't.
Once in a while. Not often.
Listen to “serotonin” by girl in red
Yes, no harm if you don’t act on them
