Obsession

I have an obsession with someone and it's inappropriate. This obsession is stressing me out.

Do you ever get obsessed with people to the point of stress?

Yes I used to mistake obsession for love when I was younger.

It caused me to stalk people quite a lot and someone actually got an injunction out on me because of it but I just couldn't help myself.

It did cause me quite a lot of stress but only because I couldn't understand why I was being demonised for doing something that I didn't realise was wrong.

I also get obsessed about people I don't like as well and that really does cause me stress to the point of self destruction...not good.

It's somewhat lust. I love their appearance and I want to have sex with them, but I also want to like them enough to feel attached to them. Most likely, none of this will happen.

Obsession sounds like a smelly perfume, j/k like SS said explain in better detail the relationship you have and the obsession and how it manifests.

I've been obsessed with this person for about a month now and I've seen them 3 or 4 times in that period. They're not family or a friend, but we've interacted and we're somewhat comfortable around each other.

Whatever you do. Don't follow them home or you'll end up in the psyche ward. Guaranteed. One psychotic break, and boom, you'll be there.

So. Make a list, positives and negatives and balance it out, then find it in everybody.

Your fixating. So, expand your thoughts, criteria and mind.

Do the list. Do the list. Do it.
