When you are suffering with brain thoughts, especially when it has to do with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, you should know that you really do not have control of the world around you, it is simply an illusion. OCD revolves around your attempt to control something. You do rituals to prevent something bad from happening etc.
Can you see how this is an attempt to control what happens around you? You should know that the only thing that you really ever have control over is how you interpret the information around you. Remember the apostle Paul in the Bible and how he was singing praises to God even when he was in jail! Would you have been able to interpret the data of being locked up like that? I believe that God broke him out of jail because of his attitude toward his situation. If you had an employee, would you not want to have someone like Paul working for you? I know God did!
When we think of brain thoughts when it comes to OCD, we can see that if you believe that you cannot control the thoughts and you keep telling yourself these things, then you are creating your own demise. It is truly a self fulfilling prophecy. What is it that you think drives all of your actions? It is your beliefs about the information around you. It is how you are interpreting the things that you are seeing and hearing and smelling and touching and hearing, etc.
You may have even read my last sentence and said, wait, why did he write etc. when he listed the five senses? People don’t like nit pickers. Let the stupid little details go and focus on what you can do to change you! Being nit picky like this just makes you hated by others and will perpetuate your OCD and if you continue this behavior then you deserve OCD. No, instead you should start to become the kind of person that you want to attract in your life.
Do you want to marry someone who will nit pick you? Do you want to marry someone who has OCD? Probably not. If there is one thing that I would like to instill in you, let it be this, you can only achieve the things that you believe you can achieve. If you believe you can’t get rid of OCD, you are right, on the other hand, if you believe that you can get rid of OCD, you are also right!
