Dating seeking reassurance
I know that this reassurance thing isn't helping me, and I don't know how to break the habit. I really hope what I've said makes some sense, and thank you!How does one stop seeking approval when he or she is lonely? How can I stop snooping through my boyfriend's email? I broke up with him but can't stop thinking about him!!
The study of ERS as a risk factor for depression grew from Coyne's initial presentation of an interpersonal description of depression, which described a process in which depressed individuals behave in a way that elicits negative information from the environment that then strengthens their depression.
A semi-structured interview was employed to ask individuals with OCD to reflect on occasions when they sought reassurance, and its impact on themselves and others.
Ten interviews were conducted, transcribed, and analysed in detail using thematic analysis.
► Before, during, and after they seek reassurance, individuals with OCD become extremely careful, making a ceaseless effort.
► Individuals with OCD also experience hesitation, ambivalence, and other inhibitions, which interfere with reassurance seeking.
As a result, the person with health anxiety often engages in checking the body for symptoms.
