Do you know what obsessive thoughts are? It is important that you learn to identify the difference between “ruminative” thoughts, which are those to which we turn permanently, and obsessive thoughts, which are those that also appear intrusively in our mind but also generate a high degree of anxiety and can interfere in a significant way in our lives. People have the ability to create thoughts continuously and, in many cases, we manage to find the solution to many of the situations we face every day through them. But, likewise, when we face situations that pose some kind of risk, it is possible that we generate alerts in the wrong way, and even conceive obsessive thoughts. If we interpret our thoughts in an objective way and without excessive attention, we may be able to manage them without experiencing suffering. However, if we look at them catastrophically, our distress and anxiety will surely skyrocket. We often try to stop at all costs those thoughts that cause some kind of discomfort. But this is not always the best decision. Below, I share with you some recommendations for you to learn how to better manage obsessive thoughts.
