@tangledupinplaid21, “but I can never seem to commit to anything because I will be super excited about an idea and lose interest, sometimes within a few hours, sometimes a few days.”
-That’s a matter of habit. If you stick with things, they become exciting again after a while. Inspiration feeds on itself, actions become habits.
“Does anyone else experience this? Is this “normal”?”
-Lots of people do, it’s normal. It’s not really a problem either, it’s just a matter of preferences, definitions.
“I have abused a lot of drugs in my past, maybe this is the cause?”
-Nah, lots of peope have done that, you don’t see them all acting like this. I used to be a druggie, my mood is stable.
It’s not the drugs, it’s the tendency that leads to the drugs. The drugs are an effect, not a cause. A symptom.
If you go without the brief inspiration you get from these impulses for a while, you will not have this issue, and you’ll find a deeper and more lasting inspiration.
“If you also experience this, do you force yourself to be consistent with things anyway or do you just accept your ups and downs?”
-There’s no forcing it, suppression is bad. It’s more like surfing, (or wrestling, riding, yoyoing, whatever) gotta move with the momentum, be smooth.
“I could probably be diagnosed with some disorder if I were to want to get checked out, but I don’t.”
-Anyone would, especially young women. Doesn’t mean it’s true.
