ERP is the gold standard.
Let them be there! Make fun of them, laugh at them. Get tough with yourself and say you won't give in
Don’t let them define you! Intrusive thoughts are not in your control. Remember that they do not appear with your own intention, and they do not come from you yourself. I totally get how it’s both frightening and annoying to have these thoughts. Surround yourself with the people you care about and enjoy being around, and talk about it to someone you trust if that is comfortable for you. It will get better. Just know that you aren’t alone, and it’s okay to have these thoughts. You can always message me too if you would rather talk to someone anonymously! :) it will be okay!
@random_person Of course:)
Dont listen to your inner voice or people who say “Let them go,” Program yourself to “Let them be” and move on to something you think as positive, you can always come back to the scary thoughts without overanalyzing them. It’s hard but you can do it!
