Stay on Course

We have to keep up the fight against the bully of OCD.  It's easy to slack off. Sometimes we get used to feeling the same amount of fear, and mistakenly think that facing the OCD head-on will bring a new greater fear we can't handle.
Fear is fear. The anxiety might increase when we set new goals to tackle another fear/obsession/compulsion, but it lessens if we are persistent in not backing away from the fear.

...There's a way out of the cage where you live...

"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." -Sara Bareilles


Confronting the OCD is the only way to lessen the symptoms. Muster up your 'brave' and face it head-on. For more info check out the book: Confronting The Bully of OCD available at amazon.com
