Are you a bit superstitious ? like if you saw a penny on tails would you pick it up? or do you not like stepping on cracks? or freak out if you break a mirror?
I don't watch the FL Gators play on TV. They don't play as well when I do. I can listen and watch replays, but not the actual game.
I have a friend that will pick up a penny on the ground, believing that this is a visible sign that her (deceased) dad is thinking of her. So she will pick up the penny and say, "thank you, daddy." I think it's sweet.
I'm not superstitious.
I don't care if the penny is standing 🆙, down, sideways, I'm picking it up.
I keep walking when I see any 🐱.
I 🚶on cracked sidewalks.
Only reason I don't 🚶 under a ladder it might fall/collapse on me.
Break a mirror, buy a 🆕 one.
Find 💰 spend it.
Nope not at all, however my wife is. If she saw a $100 bill laying on the ground face down she wouldn't touch it. Black cats Oh my! I just chuckle at her.
No, I'm not, though I do have OCD--my OCD just does not seem to manifest itself with this type of behavior.
I love black cats, by the way. And 13 is one of my favorite numbers.
I was for a large part of my life, but I saw the world for what it really was.
Superstitions pull you in the,
direction of your belief.
Believe and Receive.
Well, let's say I used to be when I was younger.
I've mentioned before that I have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). I was diagnosed with it about 25 years ago.
It turns out that OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) is frequently associated with ADHD---along with high intelligence and a highly accurate memory.
Superstition is, for want of a better word, "linked" to compulsion and obsession. It has both a compulsive component and an obsessive component---but obsession in me can be observed by the way I answer questions and pursue threads on here---I always seek the "truth" in whatever I do, both on here and everywhere else.
I have been on one medication that has literally changed my life over the years.
Mental 18-wheelers like myself sometimes have trouble getting all their wheels pointed in the right direction. I have been on one medication that has literally changed my life over the years.
I can now focus at will; my energy is able to be efficiently directed; I have lost my compulsions (actually, my only one was the "step on a crack, break your mother's back"---watching me walk down the street as a six year old would have made you think I was a total spastic); and my obsessions are now accurately labeled as "tenaciousness."
Hey, it's been a really exciting ride and it's still full or promise.
