Too much angst

« previous entry | next entry »

I was feeling depressed and called sapience to distract myself from me, and I want to publicly thank her for smacking me over the head a bit.

She pointed out that I might be the one person she knows for whom therapy isn't useful. I'm already far too wrapped up in self-analysis, the part I'm missing is actually doing something.

I know that I could easily spend a large chunk of my life worrying about certain decisions without ever actually coming to a conclusion.

(For those reading my LJ, I bet it's fairly clear that I waste way too much time worrying about things that I rarely actually carry through on).

well, i should clarify. i think *talk* therapy isn't helpful for you. cognitive/behavioral therapy may be a different story. they actually make you *do* stuff.

but otherwise, yeah. go forth decisively!

I was thinking today that I should set an upper time limit to how long I can worry about something before I have to stop and make a decision, and if I can't pick one, to just roll some dice.

now all you have to do is decide how long the time limit should be. :P

Maybe, you are too smart for therapy?
