Re: WAts the difference between desired thoughts and unwanted thoughts?
my problem right now is that few weeks ago, i have this unwanted thought and when this thought went into my mind, i feel really scared and have butterflies in my stomach. But now, the same thought, it caused anxiety and fear also but not as strong as before. Like i said, i still try to get rid of it, but .. why is dat? is it becuz the unwanted thought have been there so long and now it eventually go away or becuz i'm accepting them. I mean, when the i have these unwanted thoughts, I'm tired of getting rid of it (i've been fighting w/ them for more than a month already). I just go "yea yea watever ... ", then the thoughts go away ..but not completely.
Is it better to accept the thoughts, like dont get too upset, try to calm yourself and then think about something else, or try hard to get rid of the thought like hit ur hand to the wall, slam the book, start to swear?. I mean.. i've been tired of fighting the thoughts, somehow i accept the thoughts and then it go away, but does dat means the thoughts r true?
Some how when i have this ocd, my desired thoughts dat i used to have sometimes seem boring to me, sometime they make me really happy .. is dat normal?
