Yeah. Anxiety becomes comfortable because I am assured that I haven't accepted the thoughts and all this isn't real.
I heard someone once say that depression can be a compulsion. I guess it sort of makes sense... sometimes lying in bed all day and feeling miserable feels safer than going into the world and accepting all the uncertainty.
yess!!! my anxiety and depression have become reassuring because then i know i don't like the thoughts. and now that they're gone i feel like i genuinely like and want the thoughts
