Can we be friends?
Hello, I'm not English native speaker too, soo Reassurance seeking it's one of the forms of compulsions, which keeping you stuck in ocd cycle. You don't need to fight your emotions or thoughts. You need to accept them, but accept not the content of these thoughts, accept that these thoughts can be here, with you, and it's okay to be with them, they mean nothing.

A little bit more about asking for reassurance:if you asking questions here while you feel anxiety, this is most likely a compulsion
Thank you so much for your comment! My therapist tells me to talk about my feelings and thoughts cause I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. But now I feel like it's not serving me well. Should I talk about it with my therapist? Maybe I should talk about my feelings without asking questions to get reassurance?
I think that therapist who specializes on ocd know how to ask on your questions without getting reassurances
@xqrsljk Not ask, reply****
@xqrsljk Or answer* sorry😅
@xqrsljk Yeah I think so too!! I'm not sure if mine also specializes on OCD. But I will defo talk to him about it. Thank you so much for the help ❤️
