    Lol... Well put question!  I try NOT to think about my thoughts, because existentialism scares me.  I do, sometimes fall into the pit of the "Who am I, really?" and "What does that thought say about me?"  But since no one else really knows my thoughts, I try to snap out of it pretty quickly.

    I think I give too much thought to my thoughts. But then I have been diagnosed by my last therapist with OCD, and I have self diagnosed myself with the subcategory/classifcation Pure Obsessional OCD which involves mostly mental rituals and compulsions often specifically ruminating too much upon one's thoughts...
