Made-Up Problems

Pinocchio

Find yourself thinking about problems that didn’t happen, might happen, or could happen if something else happens?

Don’t underestimate made-up problems. If you think about them enough, they become real. They become real if you let them. They’re like Pinocchio. At first it’s just this made-up wooden toy problem in your head that you just play with now and then, but then all of a sudden one day, you have a real boy human problem on your hands. Oh yes. This is what OCD does.

It’s OK to think about made-up problems, but don’t let them become a real boy.
