scary being outside myself watching myself

    When i lose my temper or something annoys me and i challenge someone it seems i am outside myself looking at myself

    It is always with a reason and the last time was someone littering. i wasn't abusive to them just said this road is not a depository for your rubbish.

    I am never abusive or threatening but the scary part is I sometimes cannot stop and it is like i am outside myself watching myself

    Mostly i can stop not react but the times i cannot, and sometimes such people need to be challenged but it is scary being outside myself watching myself

    Has anyone had that or know about it

    Might you be experiencing depersonalization? Id suggest counselling.

    You were right to challenge people for littering. I think if you do it subconsciously it shows how much you care about your local environment.

    I too would normally not hurt a fly. On the rare occasion I beep the horn when I'm driving, for instance someone blocking an entire left turn lane because they want to go straight and don't have room to rejoin the correct lane.

    I immediately feel a guilt and that it wasnt really me to be giving out about what could have been a simple mistake. It felt like the process of thinking of which reaction to make was skipped and I just started blaring the horn.

    I wouldn't think its something to need councillors about, I think it's a natural reaction.
