Do you have low self-esteem or are you in denial?
If you do, you are more susceptible to developing OCD.
Having low self-esteem causes you to think negative thoughts about yourself, saying things like, “I can't do it. " Or, “I'm so ugly. "
These statements are easily changed by catching them. So if you catch yourself saying these things to yourself in your head, say to yourself, “stop!" and then say to yourself the opposite of whatever the negative thought was in this format.
If you said to yourself that you are ugly, rephrase it like this, “I am getting more and more beautiful every single day!" or “I am beautiful!"
People that are confident say positive statements to themselves. You can see it in their attitudes. Sometimes they come off as cocky, sometimes they come off as really cool, either way, having a high self- esteem will quickly knock OCD out of your life, you simply will think yourself higher than it and will not have nor will you make time for it, period.
If you are in self-denial. You may say negative things to yourself like, “You'll never make it in life. " “You'll always be a loser. "
A lot of times these are the voices of people who raised us and they didn't know how to correctly bring up a child so they filled your mind will all this negative stuff. Mean while, confident kids most likely grew up with their parents telling them that they can do anything that they put their minds too.
There are exceptions and I was an exception and you are going to be an exception too.
I really want you to succeed at becoming OCD free, and in order for you to do that, start off right, but reversing those negative statements you make to yourself like in the beginning of the article.
Take action: Practice catching and reversing negative thoughts in your head and replace them with thoughts that build you up. Do it in the format that I have for your above. Don't say, “I will get better. " say, “I am getting better right now. " That way your mind doesn't put it off. You are commanding your mind to do it now, not later.
