This isn't really a quote but its about ERP. Ocd has made you suffer for long enough, why not suffer in productivity by doing ERP? :)
This came from pinterest, somewhat fitting - If courage isn't the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn't the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real with despite of it, and maybe goodness isn't the absence of bad thoughts or impulses, but the conscious choice to behave according to your moral ideals despite of them.
Love this! Typo in the middle- can you tell me what that part is? 4th line of the quote
@Anonymous Oh it should say "have real worth", not with, lol.
“Things don’t happen to me, they happen for me” -Stefan James
Struggling to understand the meaning of this one can you explain you understanding of it?
@Anonymous Yes. Sometimes, when bad things in life happen (such as having ocd), I tend to ask myself or to the universe “Why me, Why do only bad things happen to me? Now I look at my problems with the mindset of “things don’t happen to me. Instead, they happen for a reason or purpose. I like to believe the universe created my life with ocd to shape me into a mentally strong person, to become empathetic toward those with mental illness, and etc. Things happen for my benefit, not to bring me down.
@Stephanie. Thank you for explaining! I 100% agree! I’m a therapist with OCD and my experience has allowed me to help so many people with OCD get better. It’s also teaching me how to unconditionally love myself.
