My OCD is about finding something that causes me emotional pain

Once i find something that really upsets me it just goes round and round in my head. This causes me pain. I am hypervigilant at the moment and i know that hurtful gossip has gone on and it pain. is not good. I am powerless over it and i keep living the best i can each day. If people have stuff in their head around me its their bussiness not mine.
I stay close to a few friends. I forgive myself and other people for causing me
pain. I have had to develop thicker skin and to be careful who to trust.

Gossip is difficult to get over. I have to now be civil with those i know have said hurtful lies about me in the past. I just don't trust them, they maybe don't know i know, but i do. That gives me back some power.

So much has gone on in my family. One of the gossips was complaining to me about something that happened in the family. i know very well she started the issue. I know and i felt empowered by the fact i knew she was a liar but she didn't realise i knew everything that had gone in. It is good to know things but not tell them.

You know what has upset you and been said, sometimes it is actually a bit of wisdom you now have and you can keep that in your memory. It is a little bit of strength you now have and you can protect yourself from that person, not trust that person, not share anything with them. You have the upper hand now.
