Maybe, Maybe Not
Many people will reply with, “Maybe, maybe not” if you’re seeking reassurance. But those are words to live by. You don’t actually say it every single time or else that’d become a compulsion and it would also be impossible. You have to live by the statement “maybe, maybe not” by accepting the uncertainty of life and whatever your OCD is demanding of you. It will take time to get used to but you will get there eventually if you live by that statement. Everyone has to eventually—or else their life will be quite difficult—even if they don’t have OCD.
