3 Questions To Ask Yourself About Your Compulsion
1. Do I need this ritual to achieve a baseline sense of wellbeing (am I using my ritual like a drug, in a bad way)?
2. If I’m unable to do the ritual, how cranky am I (how controlling am I about this thing)?
3. Is there a way for me to enjoy this ritual without needing it?
