I decided to write a short blog post because, this morning, my friend posted a question and part of it was asking whether or not you let fear and (false) guilt control you and things you do.
Well, for some people with OCD, the answer is probably a resounding, "YES".
But, the part that stood out to me was her using (false) in front of a couple of words. It makes sense to me. I've learned and written about the fact that the doubt associated with obsessive thoughts in OCD is based on lies and comes from satan. So, when you're feeling stuck in one of those "OCD moments", you could try to remember to put the (false) in front of your doubt to remind yourself of what the doubt is: a lie.
