I Am Impulsive

act on 600 People

    I have OCD, but it's not the kind

    that most people would think of, like cleaning or organizing... but if i know one thing about OCD, it's that it is all triggers, everything is a trigger. anything can pull your trigger and set you off...and if you are like me, you know how dangerous that can be...

    I finally got the courage just

    now to look at my bank account after going out with my friends on Saturday night. I'm having an emotional breakdown. I don't even remember spending most of that money.. I am officially an idiot. **** my life.

    It's a fact that I have ADD.It has become glaringly and blatantly obvious to all my friends and family...I was in denial until recently when all the similarities and symptoms were too much to ignore.Anywho, I tend to be impulsive (more often than not, I think) and have been for...

    Though Normally A Logical Person, Who Thinks Things Out,

    I have trouble with intelligence when my emotions are involved. My thought processes become clouded and blurry, and I almost always regret my actions later. I try to tell myself to always think things through, yet I never can once I make a mistake. It then snowballs out of...

    “There are things you do sometimes,

    actions that you take by obeying sudden impulses, without stopping for even a fraction of a second to think, and then you spend the rest of your life either lamenting it or thanking yourself for it. They are rare, unique, and perfect moments."

    I Am An Impulsive Person...

    I happen to think that it's one of the only things about myself that I love. I find it exhilarating. I can't stand the idea of being a dull person. If at times I feel like I'm being too ordinary or becoming a bore, I do something unexpected. I love the thrill of something just...

    Sometimes...Too Impulsive

    I let my emotions lead the way. At this point I would've thought that by my age, I would have learned to let the brain do the logical / rational thing and lead the way. Unfortunately, not so much. It wasn't up until my ex came back into my life that I realized how truly...

    Feel The Rush

    I think that in my case, my impulsiveness is bravery to others. Although they don't know that I usually don't acknowledge the pros and cons of the situation because the rush of the moment is exhilarating.

    Sunday afternoon I decided to go to the bar

    and have one drink. One became 2, 2 became 3, and so on. Then I walked around the mall with my friend and ended up getting a 24 hour ban and told if we come back we'll get arrested. I spent a good $100 on drinks. I'm practically broke these days because i spend money...

    I have issues with spending.

    I tend to never look at my bank account while spending or whatnot because I don't want to face reality. I want to get my spending under control and pay off some of my debt. I am still in my 20s. Spending makes me feel better. I am always taking out loans, credit cards (I can't...

    Sometimes I'll eat pizza

    or Chinese food on a night that is not designated as Pizza Night or Chinese Night. Don't even get me started on how many times I've eaten tacos on a day that's not Tuesday. I hope living dangerously hasn't already taken too many years away from me.

    Blessing Or Curse?

    I have been known to be pretty impulsive. I am a very passionate person and really live for the moment. When i make a decision I want it done now, and when I lose a bit of interest then it really becomes a lost cause. I am the type of person who will immerse myself it an...

    I'm never doing drugs again.

    After this weekend, I'm pretty ****** lucky I didn't overdose. I was high for like 15 hours and had like 6 panic attacks. It was terrifying to be high so long, I thought I'd never be sober again. Scariest experience of my life. So done. Drinking is my only drug now.

    A fair amount of the time,

    I like being logical and things through, but there's times when I don't feel alive acting like that, sometimes you need that impulsive side to balance things out and keep you well rounded. At least that's how it is for me. :)

    Adhd Impulsive

    While many people might think about doing things, I do them without forethought, planning, or if I get just the urge. About a year ago I wanted to meet someone I met online who was living in Pennsylvania. So I fueled up my car and drove there. Did I mention I lived in Colorado?
