I Am Separate From My Thoughts

I just realised why some people get annoyed when I tell them my thoughts about them or things related to them. It’s because they think that I am closely identified with my thoughts – and maybe they think that I am my thoughts.
I am not my thoughts. When I speak my thoughts or, more often, when I speak of my thoughts, I am not identifying with them. I am reporting them as being separate from the me that is speaking of them.
Thoughts come and go – I remain.
I am the watcher.
