Intrusive thoughts : Hi are intrusive... - Anxiety Support
I focus on the good in my life.
When you cultivate the mindset of patience, you will learn that we heal in layers. So stop resisting this process, stop expecting that life should be different, stop waiting to feel better. Just find meaning in the process itself. There is no there, there is only here. Here in this moment. Accept the opportunity to learn and grow and feel the pain.
Everyone wants a quick fix. If there was one in a pill, in a video, in a book, we would all be more "sane"
You can stop it by living in the moment. I like to knit, making scarfs for people. Doing things for others.
I take care of my son, but believe me its hard to be a good parent when I am depressed or have anxiety. But I just force myself to stop worrying about my mental state and just be in the moment with him.
If you dont have people depending on you, then look out for yourself. Do things that you find joy in.
I also have very intrusive thoughts and have for years, just recently I have started therapy. She gave me some good advice , when I start feeling like that take a moment and think about the good things in your like and just be concerned with what is going on in your life at that koment. Like while driving enjoy drive itself and the outdoors you can see. It sounds weird but it works for me
yep, its the same thing, your mind wouldn't be stuck on these intrusive thoughts if you weren't worrying about them. Try and accept the thoughts as thoughts and agree with them. fighting them and worrying over them will add fuel to the fire so having no emotion on them and agreeing with them will eventually fade them away. hope this helps Xx
