Episode #120 – The One Question to Avoid Asking Yourself in OCD Recovery (And What To Ask Instead)

April 6, 2023

< back to blog home

In this episode, I discuss one of the recurring questions that I hear so many of my patients and followers asking. This also happens to be the one question I wish people wouldn’t ask themselves during OCD and anxiety recovery. This question tends to be a distraction, an avoidance, and a broken compass on your treatment journey. 

What is normal? or, What would a normal person do?

Specifically, I cover… 

  • The reasons why people should AVOID asking themselves this question
  • The importance of reframing your mindset and instead asking yourself, What is “good” for my personal treatment goals? 
  • Tips and tricks for putting this into practice 
  • The benefits of prioritizing your OCD and anxiety recovery, above all else
