This is all pacification, doing is better than talking

this forum, A.A. , sitting around talking, it’s all pacification to me. doing is more fulfilling than talking. i am missing action and activity in my life, i have enough sitting around talking. anyone else feel this way?

i think theres are 4 temperaments of people and perhaps yours is as the melancholic type (as many mentally ill people are). One strength of the melancholic person is that they think a lot which can lead to having a good understanding of the world (sort of the philosopher type person). I dont know you well enough but maybe youre just feeling incomplete as all humans do. without that urge i think we would have a hard time growing. were uncomfortable when were not improving.

if youre a thinker maybe you should become friends with someone whos more whos more “do” than “think” and the two of you can learn from eachother.

thats just my 2 cents, maybe i dont know you well enough. Also it might be smart to consider whether its a bout of mania causing you to feel like you need to go go go.

or maybe youre partly or wholely choleric and things are just moving slow at the moment

AA is the reason I have a life and am able to enjoy myself. I work, have hobbies, am active in my community, and do things with family. At some point you have to get off the couch and go out into the world. That’s a YOU thing.
