Yeah - real event OCD sucks! Does doing one 'good' thing make you superior to everyone else? No. So why do we believe one 'bad' thing condemns us as the worst person in the world? We're only human - try to remind yourself it's the OCD that is the problem, not the event. Sending love! X
I have moral scrupulosity OCD and this is EXACTLY how I feel. I also feel the need to confess everything so they can love me for who I actually am, instead of always thinking “if they knew they wouldn’t want to be with me or my friend “
I deal with confession as well, just today I got serval really bad sexual intrusive thoughts that made me very anxious and I wanted to tell my boyfriend them, I know he would leave me if he knew the thoughts..
@Anonymous It definitely makes relationships hard, I did over share, so I feel, in the past and it doesn’t always end well. But luckily I’m with a partner that understands my thought process and it makes things easier
@Munneka I’m glad your with a partner that is able to accept you, do you mind if I ask do you feel safe enough to tell about your thoughts and past mistakes? Do you think it’s important for me to tell my bf my intrusive thoughts?
@Anonymous I know how hard it can be to keep it to yourself but I personally think that you shouldn’t have to voice your thoughts, that’s the only thing that are belongs to you only! You’re allowed to think whatever you want without feeling bad or guilty or feeling like you need to confess anything, your thoughts or even dreaming is not you doing anything wrong, it’s you being human!
@Munneka I like your prospective, I will try to take up to heart :’
@Anonymous I really hope you can!
