Heyyyy! So, I know this feeling. It's another tactic OCD uses when trying to make you forget who you are. Don't fall for it. I was reading a bible devotional and it told me to challenge the thought with truth. Don't push it out, but just say (for instance) for God did not give me a spirit of fear, but power and love and a sound mind. So I repeat that to help me remember I wasn't created with a fearful heart. The devotional said once we learn to let those negative thoughts go, our feelings will fall in line next with our faith. I'm struggling with the feeling aspect. anytime I feel anxious, even if I'm not worried mentally about anything I immediately relate it to ocd and have an episode of intrusive thoughts. I've learned that while you'll always have the thoughts, they won't be as frequent and they won't have the same power over you. I promise. It's a journey for sure but you will get there. I promise. Give yourself grace, don't get upset when you have an episode and remember - just keep swimming!!!
Thank you 🙏
