Something that helped me with this theme is recognizing that everyone has a masculine and feminine side and we can portray those as freely as we would like 🤍🤍
I just can’t imagine being a man and actually liking it . It was never who I was . But I feel like I really don’t have a choice. I always love my body and I loved being pretty and the attention I get from being a girl always made me feel good. I was happy the way I was my life was fine . If that fear comes true , i won’t have my bf anymore , I won’t love myself anymore , my son won’t have a mother , my mom won’t have a daughter . Why can’t I just be me ?
@anonymousN You are still you! And you are incredibly beautiful! Try and recognize that you are in a cycle of fear because you seem to really value being a woman :)
@raeniedays Thank you so much . I appreciate it a lot
A good exposure I did was dressing in mostly masculine clothes. Just know you aren’t alone and that this is a really common thing
Thank you I appreciate you . It’s just been so hard this week . It feels way to real
I know it’s hard. But you can still fight this. Your ocd won’t stop if you do what it says. It’ll keep asking for more and more like a spoiled brat. You can show ocd that you’re not going to give into it. When you have thoughts like that, let them live in your head for a while without fighting them. It’s hard and the feel very real, but once you just start to ignore them, they’ll get quieter and quieter. Repeat this and you’ll feel a ton better in no time. You’re not what your ocd says. You’re brave, strong, smart, independent, and awesome! You CAN overcome this, I know you can! I really hope this helped, I hate to see you so upset like this. You aren’t suffering alone. we understand what you’re going through and we’re all in this together. I know you can make it, you’ll be ok! ❤️
Thank you so much 💗
@anonymousN Of course! I hate to see you suffer. I’ve suffered a lot from my own ocd and I know it can be devistating. I completely understand what you’re going through and I really hope I could help! You’re an amazing person and I believe in you more than ever!
@BlueMountain Yes it’s very debilitating and it slowly took away my sense of self I feel empty and scared all the time I have no idea how I overcame this before
@anonymousN I know how you feel. But I promise you it’ll get better! You’re just in a bit of a slump. Even the bravest, strongest people in the world fall off the horse once in a while. You can regain everything! The first step is to just accept your thoughts as just ocd. You’re strong and you have your friends to support you! We know you can do it!
@BlueMountain I’ve tried to but I can’t make myself believe it’s ocd . It’s like my brain won’t accept that .
@anonymousN That in itself is ocd as well. Maybe instead of trying to convince yourself it’s ocd, just try and not question the thoughts at all. You have a thought, you let it stay there, maybe even evaluate it a little until you find out it’s just ridiculous, and just continue whatever you were currently doing. Exposure is very good for ocd and will kind of “shave” off some of the scaryness. Questioning our fears will only make us feel worse and more afraid. The fact that you are so afraid of these things is proof that you don’t want them at all. You may not think it’s ocd, but me and the rest of the community know it is and know that you don’t deserve to live in its shadow. You deserve to feel free and happy. Have faith, and you shall be rewarded! 💗
