Thank You for Compulsion vs. Propulsion

Sometimes we are driven to accomplish some thing or another.

Sometimes we are driven by some thing or another that doesn’t accomplish anything except running us in circles.

The best way for me to differentiate between propulsion and compulsion is to look at where it is taking me.

If I am heading into a direction that benefits my life, it’s probably propulsion at the wheel.

If I’m just walking in circles, doing the same thing over and over, it’s  more than likely that compulsion is driving my vehicle.

The pro and com of my pulsion sometimes balances out, but I prefer to  be a pro more than a com.

It just feels more productive, more psychologically healthy and less powerless.

I have never heard of anyone seeking psychiatric help for obsessive propulsion disorder.
