I’m currently going through this right now. Suggested meeting with him tomorrow and now regret it ughh 🙄
it’s not that I’m gonna regret it, it’s just the fact that I just wanna be happy when I’m with him, I truly do love him I’m just so scared that anxieties gonna ruin our time together
Hanging out with ur boyfriend is an exposure. Do it. Practice it. Remember OCD attacks things that are important to you.
I was doing the same and afraid to even speak to him cuz when I did I was anxious and overthinking and over analyzing everything. But little by little it wore off because I was enjoying my time with him. I almost had a panic attack the first time lol I kinda did and sometimes it’ll come up again and I’ll feel shitty but found lots of exposures and affirmations to help ease it, u can do it :’) I believe in you!!
aww thanks, what were some of your exposures?
@Anonymous I just remember I’d push myself to hangout with them or talk to him without going deep into thought and giving myself a sort of saying in my head saying to feel this anxiety and then let it go. I never pushed it away because I remembered that makes it worse, so I pushed myself head on like no hangout with him even if it’s scary and sucks to feel this anxiety. Because if you avoid him or whatever you’re trying to avoid, it is telling ur brain it’s true or a threat!
@Anonymous Hangout with him^^
