Venturing into dark territory
Whenever life throws you a curveball, you’re suddenly flooded with unwanted thoughts. They’re intrusive and disturbing, and they won’t leave you alone. There must be a reason for these thoughts… right? That’s when the fear creeps in, making you think something’s wrong with you.
These thoughts have led you to take precautionary measures like avoiding certain situations, people, or objects. Unfortunately, the isolation creates the perfect environment for OCD to fester.
It’s a life of secrecy, too
It’s hard to share what you’re going through. Naturally, you don’t want to be judged…
or be labeled a monster,
or lose the relationships you hold dear,
or lose your freedom that seems to be hanging in the balance.
The fear and uncertainty make you question the core of who you are. They’re enough to make you feel like you’re losing your grip on reality. You may have even considered something drastic, like checking yourself into a hospital or turning yourself over to the police.
We can navigate this OCD maze
The truth is these thoughts don’t have some malicious intent, and they certainly don’t have to define you. But I know embracing the truth isn’t as simple as it sounds.
You’re not going to do something terrible, so we’ll start to separate reality from the fear and see these intrusive thoughts as the mere thoughts they are. When you see them for what they are, their volume will diminish, and they’ll lose power over you. Slowly, you’ll start to find relief and freedom. And if those OCD voices ever do pop up again, you’ll have the tools to brush them off as the nonsense they are!
