How do you know you have OCD?
Think about HELL for a moment. Don’t think of it as a place where there is fire. Think of it as a place where you have no freedom, but a lot of fear.
You are in a room, and you are a prisoner. Your fear will not let you do the things you want to do. It will also make you do the things you don’t want to do. The things that you want to do are pleasant. The things that you don’t want to do are unpleasant.
This room is HELL.
I just said you are in a room, and you are a prisoner. I said nothing about your being locked in this room. I also didn’t say that anyone was holding you prisoner.
Hell has a door. This door is unlocked. If you leave, no one is going to stop you. No one is going to hurt you. No one is going to come after you and make you come back. You are free to leave anytime you want.
BUT, You Don’t Dare Leave. You are much too afraid.
This is how you know you have OCD.
