I like to reflect on some of the words of the song, Brave, by Sara Bareilles, regarding 'OCD' or any fear that sneaks into the mind and heart.
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is.
Yes! Show the OCD and/or anxiety how big
your brave is today!
