completely normal, when you tell them to shutup they get more aggressive
I tell mine to “stfu”
It’s only a compulsion if you HAVE to tell it that
Saying “shut up” to your intrusive thoughts is a compulsion?
If you HAVE to do it than yes and I feel as though I HAVE to do it
I was told not to address them in that way that they only get worse when you do 🤷
