Socially Acceptable Addictions

Common self soothing mechanisms employed by the egocentric left mind. 

Excessive time and psychic energy is expended on controlling and managing ones’ external environment and these activities are employed to offset their negative polar charge imbalances.

All are “Socially Acceptable Addictions”, and in this sense, are employed to unconsciously suppress legitimate existential thought and the discordant feelings associated with them.  The adaptive instinct, mediated by the ego, directs such activities.

To do lists: making them and completing them

Shopping

Movies

Maintaining an active (non or pseudo-demanding) social calendar

Pleasure seeking activities

Novel experiences
