Hey there !
This morning I’m listening to the OCD and anxiety podcast. I’m listening to the episode called ‘discovering the lens of fear.
Matt said something really powerful.
“Living in this fear is worse than the thing I’m so scared of coming true”
Today I was disappointed that I gave into a compulsion last night of asking my partner for reassurance.
But I am so encouraged though that yesterday I had soo many intrusive thoughts but 9times out of 10 I did not have to follow or try to fix the thoughts. 9 times out of 10 obsession didn’t insue … and 9 times out of 10 I didn’t follow up with a compulsion.
Grateful for my progress.
Today I am committed to not doing my compulsions.
Because for me it doesn’t matter if the thoughts are likely to actually be true… it doesn’t matter because FEAR itself is my biggest problem today,, not thoughts and not others
Letting go 💜
