Is it normal in harm ocd to feel Like you’re lying to yourself when telling yourself what you want or what you’re values are?

I may not be explaining this exactly right. But the best I can describe it is you know logically you wouldn’t do it but you FEEL like you do. It sucks. And OCD tells you the opposite of what you want. Does that describe what you are feeling?

Yes and logically I want to have a happy life my person and have children like I have always wanted and the ocd makes me feel like I’m lying to myself by telling myself the things I’ve always loved and haven’t been able to feel as of late. This is all so weird.

It's absolutely horrendous but my therapist pointed out to me tonight about leaning into these thoughts and letting them happen without the fear. OK I'm having intrusive thoughts well bring it on all the thoughts you can think of and sit with them without fear .this is my homework for the week so wish me luck and everyone else in this position . I feel my therapist really helped with that comment tonight and I have been saying already bring it on I am going to face up to you OCD .pray this continues its not going to be easy but I need to fight this fir myself and my family 👊💪x
