I am stronger than I feel Anxiety means I am making progress by not avoiding I am not weak, I am a victim of OCD
From the book: Confronting the Bully of OCD
Note: Whatever obsessions are assailing you, talk back to them as you would to a threatening bully. Then do not believe the frightening thought, avoid the fear, or give in to the compulsion. You'll feel scared and/or uneasy, but also stronger.
