Agree with the thoughts, but to an extreme and sarcastic degree
Like “yes I am so horrible now I am going to go doing something else” ?
@Anonymous Yes. It works for me sometimes. Since OCD uses hyperbole to scare us, why not turn it around on it. Next time you feel like a bad person say “I’m the WORST person in the history of EVER and there’s no way anything will EVER change.” That way you see how illogical it is but you also aren’t acting in fear of the thought.
lmao i thought i was gross and weird for saying “it feels like a nice massage” when my doc asked if it was painful when he was using some doctor tool on my stomach 😭
