    Unhappy Help: How do I understand fixate on sth?

    Why does everyone keep fixating on that?

    Does keep fixate on sth mean keep mention on sth? How can I use it the right way? Thank you very much for you help!!!

    Hello Trans

    'To fixate on something' means 'to have an obsession with something'.

    'To keep fixating on something' means 'to keep obsessively referring to something' or 'to keep obsessively doing something'.

    In your example, it means 'why does everyone obsessively concentrate on XYZ?'

    Bye,
