      We need to adopt the approach of never giving up. 

      Because often we give up when triumph is only just around the corner. 

      If we learn what we need to know, go about applying what we need to do, however challenging this might be, we will get there. 

  2. There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.:)

  3. Stay strong, Believe in yourself and Never give up :sport_boxing:

  4. “Be strong, things will get better. It might be stormy now, but rain doesn’t last forever.”

      Self-compassion is easily lost when in the grip of OCD. 

      But learning to apply it alongside CBT is beneficial and can help us to feel we can reconnect with others. 

      We are not to blame for having OCD. 

  10. Don’t listen to the OCD negativity; be your own best friend.

  11. Be loyal to your future not your past

  12. Don't fight your obsession. Get busy! 

  13. OCD is a big fat liar :yes:

  14. Everyday is an opportunity to make positive changes. :57439eb60db27_thumbup: Let´s start today!

  15. Life is beautiful when you learn to appreciate what you have ♥️

      Thank you Roy:57439eb60db27_thumbup:, I have visited the member's area, in fact I replied to one of your post:

      Ah yes thanks for that.

      I must have missed the notification as there has been a lot of other traffic going on :)

       

  23. Tiny tweaks can lead to big changes :D You can beat OCD!

  24. 'START' is a great verb ... you can start to be more polite to yourself... start to forgive yourself and others... you can start to take a deep breath when you need to relax...
