  • Relationship OCD

Can someone help me with this particular trigger? I have ROCD and when things get « boring » like watching a movie or a tv show all day or not doing anything exciting I begin to think that my relationship is boring and that I don’t love her. What ERP scenario or exercice could I do with this one ?

i would lean into that "boring" feeling. that is a real exposure in itself. what if every day of your relationship IS boring like that. what is the worst case scenario? when you start to have those boring days, try not to seek answers. accept that it is incredibly boring sometimes. when the thoughts come up on these days, just say "yep it is boring, but i won't find a way out of it".
