If you were asking me to explain how OCD has helped my reasoning skills (if you weren't, I apologize for the awkwardness), I'd say that since it forces my mind in multiple directions, I consider all possibilities, all rights and wrongs, the consequences if I do or don't do, the impact it may or may not have on myself or the other person, etc. Basically, it has allowed me to see scenarios in many colors, rather than just black and white. While others may say or act before thinking, I think before I act but reason through all the details before hand. It can be mentally exhausting at times but I've found that if I'm jotting my thoughts down on paper, it really helps!
