You have to be brave and curious, and take it one step at a time. The more you can not give in little by little, the more confidence you will have with bigger intrusive thoughts. But you have to take the “risk.”
Thank you for this. I’m going to apply this when the thoughts come up.

It is hard work for sure. But remind yourself that doing a compulsion will provide only temporary relief and it will return. That ocd trick.
