sounds like when you're falling asleep, your mind allows itself to think of things it doesn't otherwise, when you are busy doing other things and being distracted by day to day living. even if you don't think about these things during the day, the issues are still there. right before bed is a time for some to turn their thoughts to deeper things- and it sounds like it's that way with you. i don't know that there's a way to make those thoughts go away: you just have to realize there's some heavy stuff out in the world and in your own head, and allow yourself to let it go, or accept it for what it is and not allow yourself to be weighed down or controlled by it. what will be will be, what happened happened, and life is a neverending journey. that's what i have to tell myself sometimes in order to keep moving and not be overwhelmed by my own feelings.

Catie, we all do that at times. At night everything is quiet and you are not distracted. In bed, the lights are off and we are alone with our thoughts. My mind sometimes races at night- thinking of everything from what happened during the day to things that happened 30 years ago! You have to control your own thoughts as best you can. If you think happy thoughts- you will feel happy. If you think sad thoughts- you will be sad. Happiness is a choice. You have to just choose to be happy! When everything is quiet at bedtime- think funny thoughts, happy thoughts and not sad ones. Just say--Oh No you don't! Not going to think about those sad events in my life. I have some good events and I will think about those. You can train your brain. I also pray. Hope you have good thoughts tonight and sleep well.
