      Hi I have OCD and always assume that there’s no point in trying to be my real self as people’s reactions will be negative to anything I do. I really believe this. Maybe one day I’ll look back on this as just part of my life, it just has to start getting easier soon, doesn’t effort deserve success?  I want some good things to look forward too but don’t really think they’ll happen.

        What do you mean by “real self”?

          Yes, this is not unusual for me either. I beleive that its a compulsive behaviour to adapt yourself constantly to your surroundings. I for one always want to feel that I fit in and therefore depending on which group I am around, I do think that I adjust my personality accordingly to avoid these negative reactions.

          It s difficult to comabat, hence why I do most things alone if I’m honest. But, it doesn;t mean that you can’t look forward to things in the future. Try to plan things that you enjoy.
