Every 4 out of 5
people experience
intrusive thoughts...

(even thoughts about harming themselves and the people they love.)

But for 1 in 50
this fear becomes
much harder to
dismiss.

(So they compulsively try to erase this fear.)

Could I actually kill someone I love?

Would I actually hurt a child?

Am I gay or straight?

These thoughts repeat
over and over, faster
and faster, making the
fear we might act
more real.

For us,
anxiety
depression
suicidal thoughts

are a
constant
struggle.

(To cope, We might form weird habits, withdraw from
friends, avoid certain situations.)

But the truth is...

we are
no more
likely to
act out than
anyone
else.

in fact,

We should
embrace
uncertainty
rather than
seek
reassurance.

So why do we have doubting thoughts all the time?

For some, this may be a symptom of OCD.

Can we make the
thoughts go away?

Unfortunately, trying to make them go away can only make them worse.
