I’m aware that my worried thoughts are totally snowballing today but it’s hard to make them stop. I saw a video on Reddit that made me sad/upset. And then got myself all worked up just imagining that bf might have found the video funny. And remembered he’s shown me similar ones before just like light heartedly. And then we argue sometimes because I’m like demanding to know why he finds them funny and I’m a million steps ahead thinking the worst. I know he’s a good person. I know he does not in his heart of hearts approve of bad things. I know this for certain. But my OCD brain is just on a roll. Just thought I’d share here before I wound up acting weird to him. Cause that really wouldn’t be fair.

Just remember that other people don’t feel emotions are strongly as we do so have totally different reactions. Glad you’re feeling better. x

exactly. Thanks. I also reminded myself that sometimes I watch super sad stuff because I find it interesting and objectively it’s like 100 times more depressing and my bf probs wouldn’t watch that.
