It helps to think of it simply as a brain malfunction. It also helps to observe the thoughts with non judgement. Easier said than done, I know, I struggle with the same thing. Lastly, if you do judge your thoughts as "bad" or "good" just remember that the thoughts you hate to have are not truly yours to bear, they are alien from the true you and should be viewed as such. Again, easier said than done. But it helps to reframe it. Hope that helps
Thanks for your words of support! It’s so difficult!
I hear ya. Some days I feel great and others it feels like the whole world will collapse.
Yes, exactly. It feels like “ok this time it’s really true”, but there is still a missing piece, so I am just hanging in between. And then, I’m waking up the next morning and thinking “ok, let the thoughts come and get me, I don’t care, we can coexist.” This is so ridiculous 😭💆🏼♀️
You took the words right out of my mouth! Just that feeling of being trapped! For me it's like I feel like I can't talk about it because then I'll make my problems sound worse then they are. OCD sucks!
