Cursor stays at "Add text box" even when doing other activities on preview window

So as always, I am facing yet another problem.
This has been happening for a while now.
I create a text box layer. The cursor turns into a text-box creating cursor (see image below).
HOWEVER, it STAYS that way even when doing OTHER things, such as editing the shape of an image on the preview window, or trying to CLICK on an ACTIVE text box! So instead of being able to, you know, pull on the edges of the image where the little circles are, I end up creating a text box.

How do I disable this from happening? I have a feeling that this is normal and that I'm doing something wrong.

are you changing tools back to the selection tool before you try doing other things? You still have the text tool selected in the screenshot so thats why i ask.

Sigh...........
Yes, that's it. I should've looked better.
Thank you, no wonder I couldn't find it anywhere. X(
