Hello, after (admittedly) bragging about something one my co-workers called me a 'show off'. For some reason my OCD locked on to this idea and I have been ruminating about it - a lot. It feels like anything good I do, anything nice I buy, any time I share any good news that I am "showing off". It feels like that is a horrible thing. Fashion is showing off. Competing is showing off. I don't think I'm an arrogant person, it's just the more I ruminate on it/google on it, the more everything feels like a form of showing off. In a bad way. It also feels like everyone else is showing off too. It is eating away at me. I feel guilty and anxious about trying at anything. It has depleted my ambition. I am serious - I can't stop thinking about it - what should I do about this?
