Breaking the thought patterns that lead to endless obsessive-compulsive behavior may be similar to breaking the habits of addiction.
There are two trains leaving the tracks
The Sane Train and the Insane Train
I keep buying tickets for the one, but board the other.
Then, I jump off that train – who knows where it’s going, but it’s sure to crash eventually.
I dash back to the station, proud of my decision to change trains.
Only to board the wrong train again.
I’m on the wrong side of the road
I gotta get back to the right side.
But I can’t, not yet.
And then, Bam!
