I hate ruminating, the thoughts come to my mind automatically, I dont think about them but they come by their own. I feel frustrated. I dont want these thoughts to come to my mind. I wanna be normal how I was back then
@mm3 So u relate to my comment?
If anything I care about comes close, it becomes a rollercoaster, anywhere from minutes to hours, to full days of ruminations.
It’s constantly thinking about things you don’t want to think but you think you can you can fix it somehow then feel bad. Ends up beating you down.
Thank you, that experiences my thought processes
"Okay, wait. If this is possible, then maybe I'm fine! No, no wait. That cant be right.. oh wait! The doctor told me that I'll be okay if I take this. But what if it's not good for me? Okay, this cant be true, so I'm fine! Right?" And then it just goes on.
Yep, that’s exactly what I’m like. Thank you
@Loomin Rumination is horrible
@ocdgorl It’s just exhausting
It feels like trying to put out a bonfire with a squirt gun. 🔫 Totally impossible, but you gotta do whatever you can to combat the thought right? 🤦 Very frustrating and draining.
Is this relationship right? Is there someone better? I don’t feel like it’s right, something feels off. She’s too ________ or isn’t _________ enough. My ex so-and-so wasn’t like that. Maybe it’s not right and there’s someone out there that isn’t so _________.
these are/have been my intrusive thoughts.
@bellag My early relationships I was obsessed with my partners. Like I couldn’t live without them, and I needed them to survive(obsessed about them) Then it switched and now I obsess about things in my relationships and why it proves it’s not the right relationship. It’s exhausting and terrible
@enlightened_cicada i feel you my friend, almost exactly the same issue for me. we’re in this together ❤️
Yeah I recently fucked up a relationship, and only in hindsight can I see that I was totally doing this. Fucking sucks.
