Choose your Poison

Obsession/Addiction = No time for family/priorities

Apathy/Depression = No desire for family/priorities

Which one would you prefer? Maybe you have both in your life?

I'm sooooo there.

If it's not one it seems to be the other. I'm lucky if I have those brief moments where it's not one or the other or both.

Thought provoking question. I've just had to ask myself that about a currently brewing obsession/addiction. I want to choose neither. Just a healthy balance of family and priorities (some of which are the addiction).

I'm not sure what I just said, but I'm sticking with it.

What do you choose?

Cheryl said...

I choose neither, but I'm plagued with both. Worst? When hubby has O/A and I have A/D.

Right now, I think I'm just thinking about both.

It depends what the O/A is. The A/D is never fun. I hear you though. There are plenty of things I should be doing instead of.....

Thats a tough one. I would prefer that they not happen at the same time. Thats my goal. Once I get "there" then I will work on elimination!

Good question.

Wow. Thought provoking question. I don't prefer either. I'd prefer balance.

I deal with both, in myself. I tend to bounce back and forth between the two. It's hard work achieving balance, it's always easier to maintain once I'm there.

O/A follows A/D. It seems like the only way to get caught up again, sometimes, after feeling apathetic.

This is pathetic, but I'm just starting to recognize this cycle in my life. Don't get me wrong, it's been going on forever...I've just not had one second to stop and notice. Now that I've noticed, I'm a little concerned about the whole manic-depressiveness of it all. Let me know how you balance it. :)

Very interesting question. I try to strive for balance by fluctuating between the two. Do I? That is the question...

What if your obsessed/addicted to apathy/depression?

You've got a lot on your plate right now, girl. That's all.

I would prefer to have neither, but I struggle with both on a daily basis. I just take it one day - and sometimes 1 hour - at a time and hopefully it will get better eventually.
