      Why does the need to check something,  actually become stronger, the more  I check it?!?!

      It does,  Doesn’t it? It’s ridiculous… And yet…

      If I never check, sure, I could make mistake,  but as I  am so vigilant anyway, the risk is gonna be very low. But doing it right first time, then checking once, is brilliant,  as long as it stops there. With Ocd we have that little voice inside us, pushing us to be 110% perfect. Others around us don’t need to be…

      Can we extend that right to ourselves?

      Even if only for the next few minutes, hours, days ahead.

      I’ll risk it if you will…
