At an early age, I noticed the intrusive thoughts. They came out of nowhere and given the spontaneity, my focus were on them. They were always negative and dark which played on my psyche. I can’t stop them but that doesn’t mean I have to believe them. I don’t have to engage in them. For the longest, I thought trying to stop or block them would work but it led to more anxiety. I accept them for what they are…just thoughts. They come…they go…and they have no weight in my life.
