For example, I met a young woman, Christine, who told me about her obsession
with reality TV stars and soap opera actors. Although Christine has two young
sons, two dogs, a husband, and a large home that requires regular attention, she
opts instead to spend most of her day watching her favorite shows on television,
re-watching her favorite episodes online, and engaging in Internet-based
discussions at reality TV and soap opera fan websites. Her obsession is so
consuming that ...

“But WolfStar's obsession was consuming him, and perhaps now he was slightly
mad. He was determined to step through the Star Gate and explore other worlds,
but he also wanted to be able to step back into this one. And he needed to know
he could step back. One day a young Icarii child, only fourteen years, went out
flying and never returned. He was mourned; it was believed that perhaps he had
suffered a fatal wing cramp while flying. But then, a few weeks later, another child

8 Freud adds, “For me, however, nothing counts but my work, and I am prepared
to become entirely single-minded if only I can carry it through.”9 Freud's own
admission of his single aim or consuming passion seems confirmed in William
James assessment of Freud: “I confess that he made on me personally the
impression of a man obsessed with fixed ideas.”10 Freud, in eΩect, creates a
kind of thinking that is both paradoxical and yet characteristic of an age. The
analyst must both ...

technology made large-scale publication and mass readership a reality, but
because of his obsession with “that particular relation (personally affectionate
and like no other mans) which subsists between me and the public.”

flaneur was apparently indispensable to his writing, his notorious hourslong
walks fueled both urban obsession and imagination. As Walter Benjamin
explains in “Some Motifs in ...

The striking exception is a short passage just preceding the above excerpt, a
passage which provides readers with a first glimpse into Mildred's interior life.
Here, as nowhere else in the novel, Maugham presents us with her version of
recent events, including her humiliation at the fact that Philip has ceased to love
her, and a description of her desire from her own perspective: She was the sort of
woman who was unable to realize that a man might not have her own obsession
with sex; ...

That urge to “get even” or seek revenge was like a mental obsession for me. So I
came up with my own version: Forgiveness is letting go of the mental obsession
with revenge. There were two key terms in this description for me. One was “
letting go” or “surrender,” as Smedes put it. This is a choice—that meant it was up
to me! I had to make the decision. The other was “mental obsession.” I certainly
was afflicted with this! I was consumed with what happened to me. I had allowed
it to ...

disorder intensifies, this repetitious cycle becomes very disturbing,2 time-
consuming, and it often leads to job interference, relationship difficulties, and the
avoidance of feared situations. There are a number of common obsessions.
Among the most frequently reported is the fear of contamination by germs, dirt,
chemicals, or diseases.3 If you have this obsession, you're probably
overwhelmed with thoughts ...
