The Girl I Admire, The Beauty Of OCD

Everybody knows that having OCD is suffering. It could waste your time and energy in useless things and finally make you feel sick. Thus, many therapists have tried so hard to help people get rid of OCD by any means. I am not saying that we should not seek help from professionals to deal with OCD and its annoying symptoms; I am just asking have you ever thought that one could live with OCD and have a better life?

Sure, it is possible. As I always said, OCD is a sweet suffering. It could be a gift if you express your OCD feeling in an appropriate way, such as drawing. OCD people are usually more sensitive than others partly because they pay more attention to the surroundings. Putting books in the right position, organising wardrobe in the right order, everything must be right as I feel it right. Our perception of the world is particularly aesthetic; generally speaking, OCD people have a strong sense of beauty.

Cassia is the kind of girl. Saying on her Facebook, she simply likes drawing dots, which makes her feel pleased and complete as if by doing so she could have an increasing happiness. I knew her from the House News and was attracted and touched immediately. Her paintings are beautiful, stunning and remind me of KusamaYayoi, an influential and successful Japanese artist. Her articles are quite inspiring as well.

After all, life deserves to be beautiful with or without OCD. Don’t you agree?

從小一直培養的社會觀念、價值觀等都成為這些入侵式思維,要讀大學、有一技之長、高薪厚職、專業資格、社會地位、有車有樓,甚至近年推崇的生活品味,沒有這些事物會使我們面臨各方面壓力,「感到不安、恐慌或擔心」,從而迫使自己達標,去做一些社會認為「好」的事情,這樣好像比較容易得到認同,「壓迫感可以得到舒緩」。

但往往,那些所謂「好」的事物,甚至人,都不是我們真正喜歡的,卻沒有勇氣去放棄。「患者知道這樣是沒有必要的,甚至很痛苦,卻無法擺脫。」

別再迫自己,盡早醫治吧。
