So when I was in program today.... this girl was talking about how she’s talking to different guys because her boyfriend doesn’t give her attention. It got me triggered because one day I was trying to write about a problem and look for support from others. This guy started messaging me and he was being nice. He said you’re cute, and I showed him a picture of me, and he said something about wanting to go out. So I was like sorry I’m in a relationship. But I keep playing it in my head that I did something wrong. I have ocd and rocd, and I know sometimes I will manipulate stuff in my head. I will twist it and make it seem that I did something wrong. I know I didn’t but I just get so scared. I love my boyfriend and I want to be with him for the rest of my life, we have that connection. I care so much about him. I just Leroy felling like I did something bad, but I know I didn’t. Any tips, or reassurance?

I get what you mean but don’t guilt trip yourself. I’ve been playing a situation over in my head lately too. I saw my ex a few months ago and just said hey and I didn’t tell bf bc I thought it would make it seem like a bigger deal than it was. Now I don’t wanna tell him cause it’d be awkward to be like “four months ago I saw X” lol. And also sound suspicious. I mean as a rule of thumb if a guy seems interested in anything but like small talk or chat about work or something I’d probably take a step back. But idk. I don’t socialize a ton and I am still figuring out how to make those boundaries balanced too.

You did not do anything wrong-you did not know what the outcome would be when texting this guy. You have a boyfriend and this is good and true. no fear and no worries. Love and hugs Jules
