i feel hopeless though. i feel like my ocd isnt valid cuz of the real events and false memories and its like ive lost hope in recovery. im fifteen and my life is genuinely ruined
ocd affirmations I resist compulsive urges I am only under the influence of myself I have power over my impulses I have authority over OCD I will break my repetitive routines I will act on my true desires and intuition I will accept imperfection Intrusive thoughts do not make me a bad person My thoughts come and go freely and do not define me I am free from OCD I am in control of my mind, it does not control me I have the power to stop this I do not need to give in to urges I am safe My compulsions are weak and have no place in my life I am stronger than my thoughts I forgive myself for my past decisions and actions. I release negative, damaging patterns of thought and behaviour. I have the courage to recognize the light within myself. lam capable of healing. I release shame, anger, guilt, and embarrassment. I am a being of love, compassion, and peace. I trust myself to build a better future. I am learning and growing every day. I approach myself with patience and understanding. lam a good person. This you ? 👀
@NDukes00 im good at helping other ppl but not myself LOL. 😭
@faeirys What is your ocd subtype ?
@faeirys No lie you affirmation helped me
@NDukes00 Your *
@faeirys Ultimately, it is all up to you. Even if you have a wonderfully supportive therapist that knows you can get better, they can’t make you get better— you choose to get better with their help or to give up.

@Nica thank u sm. i wanna have hope but everytime i get a new ocd obsession and " what if " and it just makes me break down. its like jenga. one time i feel fine and i feel motivated to recover and one thought or memory floods in and i just fall down
Example 1: OCD: “You need to check Twitter to see if anyone is talking about you.” Me: -Puts my phone down and goes to wash the dishes- Example 2: OCD: “You’ve washed your hands 4 times. Do it one more time or else you will die.” Me: Doesn’t wash my hands a 5th time and then next time I need to wash my hands, I only wash them once.
