Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Message Board

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Board Index


It's hard when someone we care about can't accept the fact that we're going through a tough time, especially someone that's been with us for awhile. It hurts to be rejected, whether it's by a family member, friend, or significant other. Unfortunately, having OCD is part of who you are, and it wouldn't matter if she came back in a year or ten years, she would still have to learn that it's part of who you are.

In my opinion, when two pepole call it off, it's for a reason. Even if one person calls it off. Point being, I've been in that situation before, not because of my OCD, but for other reasons. Fact is, once there is a breakup, the trust that you've worked so hard to build is instantly destroyed. Once that happens, it's very hard to get over, especially for those of us that have OCD. I found myself constantly questioning her. "Why did you do it? Don't you love me? What if you do it again? Why can't you accept me?" These things drove me crazy to constantly think about.

For me, and for you, it's not worth beating yourself up over. She left because she has needs that she feels aren't being met. Her desire for those needs outweighed her deisre to be with you.

What you need to concentrate on is yourself, and getting back to your roots in therapy and taking care of yourself. It's never easy when someone breaks up with us, or leaves us, but that just means to me that you two were never meant to be together.

Hope this helps!:D
