What is a good coping skill to prevent the confessing compulsion? Or steer away from doing it.

Do you mean to God? Or what kind of confession?

No, confessing to my partner of my intrusive thoughts in order to reassure me he isnt going anywhere despite them.

What about something like Journaling? Do you think that could help? Writing it out on paper and letting it live there instead of in your head.
