So I’ve been doing pretty well for the past few days. I was able to get out of my house and do work in the cafe at Starbucks. But as I was driving home I was thinking o I’m good, I don’t need a man, like I can survive single. That scared me. I don’t want to loose my boyfriend. I love him so much and I want him in my life for forever, he agrees. Was that just a random thought that popped in my head or does it mean anything? I hope not, I love my boyfriend and I want to marry him one day. Is my ocd taking over my thoughts again, and am I dissecting too much into my uncomfortable thoughts?

Does that mean I don’t want to be with my boyfriend or something? Thoughts

It's just yourself being intelligent and weighing up your options.

I don't think there's anything to worry about; you were just feeling good and independent and there's nothing wrong with that. To me, there is a major difference between wanting a person and needing a person. When I was in a relationship, I wanted him in my life forever, but I didn't need him to survive. In the end, our relationship ended due to other factors, but even during the relationship I knew I didn't need him, I only wanted him. The way I see it is, if you love him and he loves you, then you're perfectly fine. Best of luck to you x
