Taking Control of OCD
Updated: Mar 1
The real problem is excessive worry about being dangerous rather than in fact being dangerous. OCD obsessions and rituals are about trying too hard to be safe, or to rid your mind of certain thoughts. Keeping things simpler and not trying too hard may help recovery and make life easier. To make your life fulfilling and satisfying its remembering that overcoming OCD in itself is not the point. The point is to live your life by enjoying it by aspiring to be the person you want to be. This does not involve spending endless hours engaging in worry, checking, cleaning, avoiding, analysing and ruminating.
