Easier said than done, but uncertainty is truly; is truly the answer to all, subtypes of OCD. Why? Because nothing, in life is ever, 100% certain. Therefore, moving forward with statements to yourself after having had an intrusive thought(s) like; “Maybe I am, maybe I’m not.” “Maybe I do, maybe I don’t.” “Maybe I will, maybe I wont.” Followed by labeling the thought(s) as intrusive is honestly/truly the only way to reset/rewire the brain in order for it to realize that there is no real, threat.
FYI, this is both anxiety provoking and causing; therefore, it’s to be expected, but we must all sit with both it and uncertainty in order to move on!
Then, focus on your morals, values, etc. They’re who/what you truly are!
Sending love, compassion and support to all those suffering from the monster and battling the beast that is OCD 💌
