Embracing Self-Love and Healing

As a 52-year-old woman dealing with romantic obsessive compulsive disorder, I have struggled for years with intrusive thoughts and incessant fears about my relationships. It’s been a difficult and isolating experience, but I’ve come to realize that I am not alone in this struggle. Through therapy and self-reflection, I have learned to prioritize my own well-being and worth, rather than constantly seeking validation from others. It’s a process, and there are good days and bad days, but I am learning to embrace self-love and healing. I have found solace in connecting with others who understand and support me, and I hope to offer the same empathy and encouragement to fellow sufferers. Remember, you are not defined by your struggles, and there is hope for a brighter and more fulfilling future.
