Celebrity Obsession - Help or Support


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Just popping in to say hey and give an update on me.

I'm happy to say that I've never been better, obsession wise. I only check out Steven's Twitter and Instagram pages once in a while. However, Steven recently deleted his original Instagram for an unknown reason, but he has a new one that apparently he doesn't want people to know about, but I know.

Other than that, not much has changed. Still miserable emotionally, but what can I do about that? Still no counseling in my near future, so I have to find some way to deal with ish. Whatever.

I'll always be empty without mila it's not fair. I don't want to be empty anymore.

I don't mind seeing you back....I'm sorry for what you're going through.  I hope "you've cost me everything" doesn't mean what it sounds like.  I know what you mean when you say it's not fair.  It's really not.  It sucks.  Trust me when I tell you one day would not be enough.

I figured you'd be back when I was watching The Bachelorette this week.

Ugh things are bad. My anxiety/depression is just getting worse everyday because of this and I don't know what to do. I hate this. I am thinking maybe I should go on meds or something. I need something to help me.

Hi everyone :)

It's been a while since I last posted here (first there was a problem with my laptop & then I was busy with exams).

I have some exciting news... I've found a job for this summer which, by pure coincidence, happens to be just outside my CO's hometown. And I reckon it's fairly likely that he will want to come home to visit friends and family at some point during the time I'm there... so who knows, maybe I might get the opportunity to meet him!

Whether that happens or not, it looks like a lovely part of the world and I'm really excited to be spending a couple of months there. But I have to admit that a small part of me feels like this is fate, lol!

@Audrey822 Thank you so much! :hugs:

To be honest, I'm not sure I would even have this CO if I didn't believe in fate. The idea that I'll eventually end up together with him, even though logically I know it's highly unlikely, has always been the driving force behind the obsession.

I'll have to wait and see what (if anything) will come of this... And of course, I will keep everyone here updated!

I think we've all had that dream, right?  Keep that dream alive, @OpalP25.  I'm rooting for you! 😉

My Celeb Obsession

Wow, I had no idea that so many other people feel the same way. I am so happy I found this thread and this website. There are so many people who feel the same way as I do. Now I don't feel like such a crazy freak anymore!

Ok, so I have had a huge obsession with my favorite Artist, (Who I won't say) for 7 months now. Ugh, it really is starting to disrupt my life. I have always been fond of my favorite artist, but I have been just completely obsessed with her for a year now! I constantly listen to her music, watch her performances and interviews, constantly go on her fans websites, look up her reviews on all her albums, look up pictures of her, & I think about her a lot and talk about her a lot. But I am not really interested in her personal life. And I also really look up to her. It's not really a celebrity crush or anything, but a person that I look up to and idolize, and even worship! 

Heres the part that freaks me out...

When I get super obsessed with her, I start to view her as a larger than life figure, whom I view as a deity! It makes me super comfortable, hopeful, and joyful when I view her as something much bigger than myself. Since I don't really believe in a higher power, I feel like she is a substitute for it. I am embarrassed to tell my family or anyone because I don't want anyone to think I am crazy for thinking about another human this way. I just dont know what to do. I don't know why I feel this way or what is wrong with me. I just can't stop thinking about her. Also, the thing is, is that I don't want to stop thinking about her, it's soooo strange. I am thinking about seeing a counselor, because this is getting out of hand.

I don't see this getting better. My life revolves around them and they're all I think about. I used to be happy with that, now I just feel anxious and depressed thinking about them and want it to stop. I just feel very protective of them and I feel like something bad is going to happen. After I post this I know I will go right back to social media, waiting for any update on them. It's pathetic how I can't stop myself.

Welcome to the forum @CulturedGuy. :)

I think if this obsession has got to the stage where you feel like it's taking over your life, you're right to try and do something about it. It sounds like you used to have things more under control before the last seven months. So maybe something happened with your CO or in your own life that caused your feelings for her to ramp up a notch? If you can pinpoint any changes over the last year, that could be the key to figuring out why your obsession has become so all-consuming and how you can make it more manageable.

As for viewing her as a sort of deity, I'm sure that's not all that uncommon. It's definitely not the case for me with my current CO, but I probably did come fairly close to that stage with a past CO. I think celebrities who seem to be "larger than life figures" often have a lot of fans who have thoughts along those lines. Not saying it's healthy, but it's not unusual. As long as you realise your CO's just a human like the rest of us (and it sounds like you do), you probably don't need to worry too much.

@scc Sorry you're struggling at the moment. :console:

All I can suggest is that you keep trying to find an effective way of distracting yourself when the thoughts of your CO and the urges to check social media get too much. I see you've already tried movies and videogames, but maybe there might be another method that works better for you. Personally, I've found talking to a friend or cuddling a pet (when I still had one :coopcray:) quite helpful. Doing some exercise might also be a good idea, even if it's only a 5 minute walk. At the very least, it will help lift your mood a little bit.

Welcome to the forum! I can relate to what you wrote. I don't truly believe that my COs are gods, but I do kind of treat them like they are. Some people find joy in Jesus and I find it in my favorite bands. Not to offend anyone, but I don't think being religious is all that different from having a celebrity obsession. One is just more socially acceptable than the other. At the end of the day, if it makes you happy and gives meaning to your life, I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. But counseling may be worth looking into if you'd like to make some life changes. I just started seeing a therapist, but I'm not looking for help in getting over my celebrity obsessions.
