I'm not sure if anyone else deals with this and it's hard for me to post this.. but, here goes nothing.
One of my biggest OCD's is not being able to express my opinions or beliefs online without fear of someone putting me down or upsetting me in some way. I will get a little upset and want to express how I feel on Facebook, write it out, edit it a million times, and then delete it. It makes me feel like a coward and that I'm pathetic. Sometimes I do get myself to post it and then delete it in minutes. It started happening with everything. Even minor things that are in agreement with someone else. I just get scared that it will be twisted into someone else's narrative and make me look like a bad guy.
Sometimes I will reply in disagreement to someone else's comment on their post and not return to see what they said back because of this fear.
Not sure if this is a common thing but I see so many people online handling arguments so well even after insulted and it makes me feel pathetic. I just want to chime in with my own opinions but I don't feel like I can.
