Obsessive Thinking

When we are suffering from anxiety, there is a tendency to worry about different things.

Very often, our minds can get stuck on one particular thing, replaying it again.

This obsessive thinking is like a very extreme form of worrying.

Underneath the obsessive thinking is anxiety.

Obsessing is often  based on reality - but blown out of proportion e.g. worry over losing a job, or a partner leaving us.

This extreme worry is not helpful in any way and it becomes a problem for the sufferer.
