I had a thought about sometimes I want some me time like a break from the relationship, I’m scared that means I shouldn’t be with my boyfriend. I have ocd and ROCD. IS it normal in a relationship to want some time to myself? Also sometimes I would think o I’d like to go out with this person, but I know I still want to be with my boyfriend. Is this at all normal in a relationship to think this stuff? Does that mean I can’t be with my boyfriend? I’m scared, because I want to stay with him, I want to marry him someday. What are you thoughts? I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year, and for a while I have those thoughts at times. I know thoughts don’t mean anything but sometimes I read into them too much, I am happy with my boyfriend, I just sometimes get these random thoughts. Can I please have some reassurance?

These are just thoughts and I get intrusive ones too. Just notice them, don't try to stop them, and then draw your mind back to where you want it to be.
