The thought “I am not OK” is one that sticks in the brain; usually from an early age. That’s what happened to me.
I always seemed to be getting negative feedback. Always getting in trouble.
Believing that you have hypochondria is one step on the road to thinking that you’re OK because at least you can see that all the other ailment beliefs were false.
The phrase “It’s OK not to be OK” bothers me. To define OK equal to its negative undermines the very meaning of the word OK.
OK should be mildly positive, not equal to zero.
