It takes time to teach your brain to not be afraid.
They’re most likely will always be there but when you accept the thoughts and let them be, you’re teaching your brain that you don’t need to panic and see the thoughts as a threat. That’s the key.
We ALL have thoughts; it’s teaching the OCD brain to not be so afraid and panic. Learning to live with thoughts and just knowing they are a thought is important.
Y’all are all right and I appreciate y’all but once I except the thought I’m stuck feeling like I want to do the thought or like the thought
It’s all really the same though. It’s just more ocd and learning to sit with the new thoughts isn’t easy but you can do it.
