How do I cope with consent of the will and OCD?
I believe I have OCD that involves unwanted thoughts. In the past when the thoughts involved people I was able to ignore them and they began to happen only rarely. Now I am having trouble with blasphemous thoughts and worrying that I am going to have a thought agreeing with someone who commits a grave sin. It is my understanding that both of these types of thoughts are examples of grave sin. I am greatly having trouble with knowing how to apply the act of the will when it comes to these types of thoughts. Since they usually come when I begin to worry about having them, I am confused if I am guilty of bringing them on. Is feeling the thoughts coming on or thinking about the thought after it happens considered reflecting? I know that the more I worry about having these thoughts the more they come. I would like to be able to ignore these thoughts so they begin to go away, but I am unsure if I am doing wrong if I ignore them. I would really appreciate your advice, it would help me so much. Thank you.
