i feel like reassurance works better for those without ocd and i realized i have a bigger potential of having it when i questioned that reassurance more
No, it’s reassurance and makes things worse.
reassurance for OCD is not good. it makes it worse. although, if you are sad or upset about something that's not related to OCD then it's okay. but it's a fine line and that takes self awareness.
This is a good point! It depends on what the reassurance is about.
No don’t ask anyone for reassurance
What's the context here
If it’s ocd related don’t ask for reassurance. It may provide you with temporary relief but your ocd can you doubt what your boyfriend tells you and it may become a cycle of compulsively asking for reassurance and becoming more uncertain/anxious about your theme each time
