Ask Amy: How do I Stop Intrusive Thoughts?

Ask Amy: I have intrusive thoughts that won’t leave me alone. How can I see this differently?

Betty (my grandma’s name, not this questioner’s real name!) has thoughts that are incredibly disturbing to her. They keep coming back over and over again.

Betty just can’t get over the fact that they are there. Why are they there, if they aren’t hers? What do they mean? Why won’t they leave?

That’s exactly the problem. This is SUCH a common question I get. Please listen to hear a very different side of intrusive thoughts.
