Getting Rid of OCD and Shame14 comments
About a year ago, I made a video about OCD and it caused a lot of controversy because I think people didn’t understand it. I’ve been working with people with OCD for a really long time and I’ve known a lot of people really close to me that have obsessions and compulsions that lead them to do patterns.
This causes a huge amount of suffering.
And sometimes people come and go into this state of being and sometimes people stay in it for a really long time and it gets worse and worse, and there’s less and less they feel they can do in their life. What I’ve noticed about all of these people is that there’s something that drives that. And it’s usually guilt and shame.
This is not surprising since the root of so many problems in our life is fear, guilt, and shame. And so why wouldn’t they be the root of OCD?
Guilt and shame feed OCD.
In this video, I’ll share how to take away its power.
You can get better.
On that last video, most people complained because they wanted to stop the patterns, but this is exactly what I am offering with this technique.
Trying to stop the patterns with guilt and shame is soooo much harder than trying to stop them without guilt and shame.
The more we pay attention to something because we’re frustrated with it, the more we give it our energy and get obsessed with it. If we could get rid of some of that shame and guilt about doing the patterns, we could cut them down exponentially. And they would be so much easier to get rid of.
When I’m working with people, we ultimately want to stop their patterns. But first, I want to take away that guilt and shame about doing the patterns.
How can you love yourself through the process of getting rid of your OCD patterns?
