Guest GingerSnap Posted May 30, 2010 Report Share Posted May 30, 2010 After you hang out at this website for awhile and read some of the articles, I started to view people and their activities a little differently. One of the things I really began and continue to wonder is "How much of obsessive-compulsive" has to do with a person who isn't really managing the time they have in a positive way. (too much time, wasting time that could be spent on a healthy endeavor)." So few people have leisure time activities that actually engage their mind, make them think and learn new things, create something. I see so many young people on this website obsessing over so many things and I can't help but wonder if one has a life, creates a life that keeps them busy and mentally/physically engaged if all or many of those thoughts would disappear. I often watch the Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan and if you get a chance, it is an excellent show and you will find that a lot of "dog psychology" also applies to humans. Just living behind walls and being cooped up all the time makes the dogs show their worst side - destructive behavior, anxieties, etc. I do tend to simplify, maybe over simplify things but try watching the Dog Whisperer and see if you can make the connection. I forgot to mention that with the rise of unemployment and underemployment that I am seeing much more of the obsessive-complusive behavior being used to fill the time or achievement void. These are just my regular, untrained person observations. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
