Trying new ways to deal with intrusive thoughts
Hi everyone, I’ve decided to try a new way to deal with my intrusive thoughts and overthinking, and that is to just ignore the thought completely. Not push it away as such, because that will just make matters worse, but more just not even acknowledging it and carrying on as if the thought never occurred. I’m doing this because usually when I have a thought I give it more meaning than it actually has and I then start to ruminate and obsess over it, so I’m just going to ignore it in the hope that they eventually just fade away? I’m not sure if this will work but I’ll update soon!
