    Obsession and People

    Some of us simply like things and forget them after time, others become seemingly obsessed with things and can't get them out of their mind. I guess at one point in everyone's life they have been obsessed with one thing or another. Whether or not it was a dangerous obsession is a different story.

    I am going to start off by saying that I know what obsession can be like, I have to live with it everyday. I have OCD. For those of you who don't know what OCD is, it is called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

    Here's a link that will surely help you understand, unless you are simply closeminded:

    About OCD | Obsessive Compulsive Foundation

    What I want to know is for those without OCD, what do you think makes them obsess over things? What do you think makes some people and not others obsess over certain things, and why those certain things? All are obsessions dangerous?

    This sort of thing has always been sort of fascinatiing to me for some reason. Maybe some of you can give me some answers :]

    Questions or comments anyone? ^-^

    I don't have it, but i think i know why people do. Usually ppl that have it, have chaotic lives with not many things in/under their control. With all this lack of control, they need to find something be in control of. When they find that thing they usually become obsessed with it, which gives them a little feeling of control in their lives.

    Hmm...makes sense. I suppose there could be many reasons why people have obsessions, considering so many people are different and lead all sorts of lives.
    Thanks for your opinion, I love to hear everyone's side, and everyone's thoughts are helpful :]

    I think it has to do with trauma
    sometime in their life something happend to shake them up
    and like miroku said they use obsessing over little things to feel steady and in control of something...
    some people count steps
    some people have to have their front door locked
    and even though they think its locked they'll obsess over it and stop what their doing to go back and lock the door
    just to make sure ...
    I think its a security blanket for people who've been through trama ...
    like when your little and hiding in bed because you're scared theres a monster in your room
    so you pull up the covers and close your eyes and tell yourself over and over there's nothing there
    and by saying that you convince yourself everything will be alright ....
    well i think ppl with OCD convince themselves these obsessions will steady them and if they keep it up everything will be alright.
    and when something interferes with their obsessions they feel unbalanced and vulnerable and the really bad ones have panic attacks
    cuz their scared of something ... what idk ... its different for everyone
    and no I dont have it but I've seen it a few times

    I don't have OCD, but I know some people who do. I think people with obsession have them because there usually to busy working on something to relize there starting to become obsessed with something. So I think its due to stressful living or something around those lines.
