Sometimes I think we OCs view ourselves as the antithesis of bravery because we experience so much anxiety, so much fear … and often over things that no one else seems to be struggling with.
But here’s the thing: we do it. We battle this anxiety every. single. day.
We get up. We go to work and school. We battle our way through days and nights like warriors. People who don’t have OCD can rarely understand the terror that we stare in the eye every day.
And, most importantly, we seek out treatment– and that is the bravest thing of all.
