Your Superpower

No, don’t worry, I’m not about to say that having OCD is a superpower, but here’s what I’ve found out...

Being open and honest about my own severe OCD has given me an amazing superpower. Transparency has been one of the most ultimate of exposures for me! Furthermore, it has taken me a very long time and a lot of hard work to get here, buuut wow has it been worth it, let me tell you! My superpower is that because I share and I am so open it’s this perpetual exposure, and, yes, it is challenging at time, but I don’t care anymore. Anyways, the superpower I’m referring to is you instant ability to see people’s true colors, their true character. Is it painful sometimes? Absolutely, but it is exponentially wonderful because of the opposite of toxicity... true empathy and support. It’s an amazing gift that you have if you suffer with OCD, because it offers an instant tell of what kind of person someone is by how they respond to your OCD struggles.

Be well, and be kind to yourself! I know it’s hard, but you are not alone, and, in my mind, you’re all rockstars! Keep up the great work. Much love!
