Embracing or accepting the OCD
I am a spiritual person. I believe in prayer. I believe that Jesus is Lord. Being a believer is not hard. It is dealing with OCD that is tough. I had to struggle with having these particular thoughts for many years. The truth is, I have to embrace or rather, accept them. That is the real struggle. While I do wish they would go away and not have any compulsions, I realize that reacting to those thoughts in a negative way may actually feeding those thoughts. I admit that I have tried a lot of things, if not everything. I still have my fears, annoyances, and doubts. I would like to be able to accept that not only do I have this issue, but to embrace it. That means what? I hope the answer will not be an uncertain one.
