Hi all. I think my last post was rather long so after some thought I've broken it up into sections - at least that way it will be easier to read. :)
I've talked to my therapist about the obsessive thoughts I experience sometimes when I am overly stressed, and she suggested considering acceptance of them
rather than fighting them. Having tried the latter on multiple occasions (to cut a long story short) I am willing to consider acceptance as a viable
But at the same time I also don't want to be at the same place with my worries forever, I would like to make progress. So I guess I could accept "this
will get better slowly" and "acknowledgement of the worries as worries" but not "I'm going to be like this for the foreseeable future".
Maybe I'm just reading things the wrong way? Acceptance is all well and good if it helps, but I think it should help you go forwards, not stay still or
go back. What does acceptance mean, truly?
What do you all think?
