    A. In your opinion, when does one being "focused" or "passionate" about his or her views or interests become OBSESSION?



    B. In your opinion, in one's "focused" or "passionate" behaviors, where is the line between sincere "concern" and seeking attention?

    Many of us have often heard the phrases "subject of passion" and "object of obsession."

    ....But, when, in your opinion, does a seemingly "passionate" subject become an object of obsession?

    Great observation, Bro. James.....Yes, I can see how one person's narrow or fixated "passion" or "focus" could push others away more than draw them to any particular "Cause."

    A. When one loses that focus and becomes driven by their passion (emotions) as well as their personal egotism.

    B. When one's fouces and passionate behaviors, the line is their "id" or as i see it, their identity/self-identity and when they project their egotism onto others is when and where they "cross" the line.

    just my opinion

    This is fairly easy sister cherryblossom, for real, all one has to do is follow the posts and actions of some to get a feel of what's obsessive and what's attention seeking.

    Nothing wrong with Obsession, some are obsessed with the good of the race

    and some are obsessed with zooming in to focus on negativity abou others,
    continue grudges,
    continue arguements each day for weeks

    for instance look at what folks zoom in on are they providing something?

    or stirring up something?

    The funny thing about the internet is that there is a permanent record of peoples behavior and actions

    So nothing is left to he said she said

    the record is there about

    what folks are mean spirited and what folks

    realy care


    When there is a website with many different groups

    take a look at what is posted in each group


    what is said and what is not said


    and one can tell


    Can a surgeon that works 19 hour days be called obsessed

    or an arsonist that only works 3 hours per week:em2300:
