Living with OCD - Episode 75

15 Things to Give Up - Part 4

Transient

In this episode Julie and Andy finish their conversation about "15 things to give up in order to be happy" (purposefairy.com). They talk about giving up on your fears, giving up your excuses, giving up the past, giving up attachment, and give up living your life to other people's expectations. From realizing that fear is only an illusion, to letting go of other people's expectations on us so we can live our own life, write our own story, and live our own legacy, this episode is an interesting conversation on how the list of 15 things not only affects everyday people but also intimately affects those of us struggling with OCD . The episode ends with a plug for OCD Challenge and a quick overview of how the website can be used for people who are wanting to start ERP but may not have the therapist or money resources to do so.
