I Need To Finalize Things - April 3rd 2010, 01:00 AM

I'm not sure if this is the right thread, I'm not even sure if this in an addiction, but I constantly feel the need to finish things. For example, I began posting chapters of a story I was writing on the internet, I got more than a few pages done, and I don't like it anymore. I hate it, actually. There's just something nagging me to finish it. Then today I felt like I needed to delete my membership to a website. Even though nothing would happen if I left it there, I just felt like it needed to be gone or it would just be sitting there in the back of my mind forever. It may be the fact that other people will be able to see those things and will be expecting something, I don't know. I just don't know how to get over it because it stresses me out all the time.


Waitin' for my ruca.

Wow! I would call that OCD - but I'm not too sure what that is about. But I think it's that your mind's full of everything and your mind is trying to tell you that you need to finish it off so it's forgotten about. Hope this helped.

Exactly! That's the problem. I can't forget about it unless I finish it.

Think, thats actually a good thing to be honest. At least your not lazy and give up on everything which is the flip-side to your situation.

This is not an addictive behavior just a personality treat.

I often have the same feelings. If something isn't done I worry about it until the task is accomplished. Even if these aren't even my tasks. It's okay, it is a good trait most of the time as it helps with your responsibility attributes. But it does bother me sometimes that I can't stop worrying about stuff.

I have the same issue, but I taught myself to channel it per say.

For example, I create daily mini-goals such as finishing an essay, studying for class A and B, doing such and such at work, etc....

This allows me to have daily goals to concentrate on and meet which in turn keeps me from focusing on the mindless stuff.
