Does anyone else worry endlessly whether they are having the right emotional reaction to things? Like for as long as I can remember whenever I saw something sad on the tv or someone told me something bad that happened to them I’ve always worried that I am not distressed or worried enough. This is to the point where I will go back and manufacture the emotional response I wanted to have but then feel bad that I don’t seem to feel that naturally. Yesterday, my friend told me something really upsetting and since then I’ve been feeling extremely overwhelmed. I worry that I am being selfish because I want this feeling to go away and yet I feel like this would be ignoring my friends pain and so force myself to sit in it for long periods of time. This then makes me worry that I will be too overwhelmed to help her and feel guilty that I am not strong enough. Then I worry that I am not even feeling worried enough and should be feeling worse…. and then the cycle continues. I think I have had symptoms relating to moral scrupulously before and was wondering if this has anything to do with it? If so, does anyone have any advice for how to deal with it?
