this is such a broad and possibly vague question but it's puzzling me

Why can I only care about/ focus on one thing in my life at a time

For example, if I'm doing theatre, all of my focus and rive and everything in me is focused on that and nothing else matters. If I'm doing music everything goes only into that. If I'm even gong into my crappy job on campus and have a reason to like being there, all of my attention and everything in me is focused on that. But never have I cared about all 3 as passionately at the same time..if that makes sense.
It’s called an addictive personality. Anything you do, you do with 100% of your willpower. All of your attention is focused on it and nothing else.
[@11256,Jordayray] Mmmm I’m not a psychologist but I think people can have an addictive personality without being addicted to a substance.

Take everything I say with a grain of salt lol. I THINK these things; I don’t know them.

Focus is like something that almost possesses you, you can't force yourself to do it or be interested, you just are or you aren't.
I think focusing on more than one thing would kind of defeat the definition of focus. You're just very focused.

I would say that it is good that you can focus on only one thing at a home. Your chances of being good at it and making it a success increases when you concentrate on one thing at a time. Choose the one that gives you the most happiness and pursue that. All the best!

If you are a perfectionist, focusing passionately on one thing may help you cope with pressure in the other areas. It may also have to do with confidence. If you are feeling good about one area you focus on that.
